Cellar/Tasting Notes
Chateau Figeac is one of the largest premiers grands crus classes!

Its hallmark characteristics of elegance, freshness, harmony,and wonderful structure are recognized throughout the world.

In addition to its pleasant nature in youth, Figeac gradually reveals its complexity over time to offer a wide range of sensations in the glass and as well as moments of great thrill and emotion.
Wine Enthusiast (WE): 96
"A ripe year like 2009 is kind to the Cabernet Sauvignon of Ch√Ęteau Figeac. The wine is perfumed with new wood and sweet fruits, delicious black currant flavors giving both ripeness and freshness. The wine has weight and impressive density. A star of the vintage."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 93
"Red-ruby. Aromas of redcurrant and plum are complicated by gravel, tobacco, wild herbs and cedar. Lush, suave and seamless, with noteworthy energy and a restrained sweetness to the fine-grained flavors of red fruits, tobacco and herbs. Insinuating tobacco and cedar notes perfume the mouth as the wine opens in the glass. Very firm wine, finishing with noble, edge-free tannins, lingering spiciness and sneaky length. Quite ripe for Figeac but without any excesses."
Wine Spectator (WS): 96
"Distinctive, with atypical (for St.-Emilion) force and drive to the black currant, roasted cedar and maduro tobacco flavors, which are supported by a dense, loam-tinged structure. Terrific roasted espresso, ganache and fig paste notes wait in reserve. Very muscular, but with the cut for balance."
James Suckling (JS): 98
"The aromas in this are amazing, with blueberries, blackberries and fresh mushrooms. Black olives. So aromatic. Full-bodied, with super velvety tannins and lovely depth of ripe fruit. Balanced. Wild flavors on the finish of, meat, berries and forest fruits. Hints of decadence."
