The suave style of the 1985 vintage would seem perfectly suited to the style of Château Figeac, but in this particular case, the lack of rough edges on the vintage may be just a bit too much of a good thing for Figeac... The suave style of the 1985 vintage would seem perfectly suited to the style of Château Figeac, but in this particular case, the lack of rough edges on the vintage may be just a bit too much of a good thing for Figeac. The wine is now fully into its peak of drinkability and is a perfumed beauty, but with a rather laid back, low acid structure that may leave a few folks craving just a bit more backend grip on the palate. The nose is stunning and a classic Figeac blend of cherries, red plums, nutty overtones, cigar ash, menthol, cedar and a lovely base of soil. On the palate the wine is fullish, silky and sweet at the core, with fine focus, melting tannins and fine length and complexity on the finish. A touch more grip would move this wine from the realm of very, very good to outstanding, as the balance here is excellent and should allow this vintage to continue to drink well for several decades. Despite its rather gentle nature, this is still one of my current favorite vintages of Figeac to drink from the decade of the 1980s.
