Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2001
A wine in harmony. Extremely bright aromas of black cherry berry and plum. Full- to medium-bodied with good well-integrated and velvety tannins and a long fruity aftertaste. Very fine. Best from 2005 through 2012. (JS)

Tasted at the Château Figeac vertical at the property from magnum, the 1998 Château Figeac is one of the best wines from this era, one where I feel that this Saint Emilion lost its way a little. It has a conservative nose, at least for the habitually opulent Right Banks in this vintage, with meaty, dried blood aromas infusing the rustic red berry fruit, later developing light ferrous/copper piping scents. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine line of acidity. The tannins are now softened with age and there is a tang of orange zest interlacing the red berry fruit on the finish. Slightly grainy in texture, it does not offer the opulence of other Right Bank Saint Emilions, though it is keeping with the Figeac style. I would start opening bottles now, however this 1998 will keep giving pleasure for another two decades. Tasted June 2015. - Neal Martin
