WA: 96-98+ The 2020 Figeac is a blend of 37% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Franc and 31% Cabernet Sauvignon, weighing in with an alcohol of 13.9% and a pH of 3.7. Opaque purple-black colored, it bursts from the glass with a beautifully vibrant initial wave of pure, pristine black fruits: fresh black cherries, juicy black plums and ripe blackcurrants. With swirling, a whole array of floral and spice notes is unleashed: lavender, ground cloves, cumin seed, cardamom and rose oil. The medium-bodied palate is surprisingly graceful for the intensity of aromas, featuring ethereal, perfumed black berry notes, framed by a seamless line of freshness and ripe, grainy tannins, finishing on a lingering fragrant earth note. Far more cerebral and quietly introspective than it is hedonic, this could only be Figeac.
Château Figeac is a property in the Saint-Émilion appellation of Bordeaux. The grand vin is known for its rich nose, silky texture and elegance, and for its aging potential in better vintages. It was rated as Premier Grand Cru Classé in the 1955 Saint-Émilion Classification. Figeac is generally regarded as having markedly improved since World War II under the ownership of Thierry Manoncourt, and has become one of the most sought-after Right Bank Bordeaux reds.
