Figeac 2015


Case Format: 12x75cl

Max score: 100.0

Château Figeac is a 40-hectare estate located in the west of the Saint-Émilion appellation. Its identity is defined by the vines used to produce the first wine, where counter to other Saint-Émilion producers, Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc make up a majority of the blend (c.70%), with Merlot comprising the rest. Its singular gravel terroir is the only one of its kind in the appellation, allowing for the production of a refined, bold and distinctive wine. With touches of graphite and notes of spicey cedarwood, Château Figeac is a wine infused with biting energy and finesse, with a growing elegance that continues to develop with age. In 2022 Figeac was promoted to the level of Premier Grand Cru Classé “A”, which is only awarded to the most premium wines in Saint-Émilion.

Sweet ripe berry fruits on the nose, depth of flavour, precision and clarity that last from the first to the last moment of this wine. Clear cocoa bean, espresso, chocolate, but also concentrated bilberry, blackberry and raspberry. The tannins are slate-strewn, textured, adding persistency and mouthwatering salinity to the palate. This is a brilliant Figeac, and ones that lovers of this wine should absolutely not miss. Harvest September 21 to October 15, 100% new oak for ageing.

Exceptionally good quality and developing as expected. Its in a closed-down phase right now, which brings my score down a fraction, but I fully expect it to justify the 100 points I gave when tasting just after bottling. Its fleshy and velvety with menthol notes and an emphasis on the florality of the Cabernet Franc. After a few minutes in the glass the tannins start to relax and you see the cassis, caramel, slate, pencil lead and black chocolate notes underneath. I would give this another three or four years before it really starts to sing. This was Romain Jean-Pierres first vintage as technical director and it was a dry year. Conditions were hot early in the season with fresher temperatures during ripening, giving an even harvest with well balanced wines. Made with 100% new oak.
