Tasting Notes

WA91

Tasted at the Château Figeac vertical at the property. It is some years since I last tasted the 2000 Figeac. There is a valid argument that it is being eclipsed by the 2001, but it is still a fine Saint Emilion. The nose is clean and fresh with strong graphite aromas, very Left Bank in style with black truffle and smoky notes developing. The palate is masculine and rather austere at first, though I notice that it gains fleshiness in the glass. It is nicely weighted, but does not quite deliver the sensuality or joie-de-vivre of the 2001 (which is actually like a lot of millennial Bordeaux). Let`s see how it matures over the next few years, but my money would be on the 2001. Tasted June 2015.

The Winery

Figeac

As one of the leading St. Emilion chateaus, Figeac wine is known for its high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon as well as aging potential. In the 1955 Classification of Saint-Emilion it was given a Premier Grand Cru Classe classification, and the estate is said to have exponentially improved since that time. Since 2010 the estate has been managed by Comte Eric d’Aramon and his wife, and today is one of the most sought-after Right Bank red wines. Thanks to the Medoc-like topsoil over flinty and iron-rich subsoil, the fruit is charged with layers and flavors that contribute to the unique and timeless wine profile of Chateau Figeac.
