Reviews for 2000 Figeac Bordeaux Blend

WS 94
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2003
Interesting decadent character. Intense aromas of dried herbs and chocolate with cooked plum. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a medium finish. Score range: 92-94 (JS)

With well-balanced powerful tannin concentration and pinpoint precision finesse and purity this expressive as well as textured effort...This is undeniably the estate's finest effort since 1996.

Fat silky and lush yet dry a thick round Figeac with impressive volume. Even the merlot in 2000 showed solid structure. Like the 2001 this shows an intriguing burnt note. Finishes with big but suave tannins and lingering notes of cherry chocolate and black olive. The richest of these three vintages by a wide margin. (A second bottle of the 2000 showed more oak spice less volume and a distinctly peppery aspect however.)

Lively mid ruby with a pale rim. Complex, quite evolved amalgam of lead pencils and warm bricks on the nose (I might even be tempted Haut-Brion-wards if served it blind).

Complex, quite evolved amalgam of lead pencils and warm bricks on the nose (I might even be tempted Haut-Brion-wards if served it blind). Bone dry finish after a very refreshing but ripe broad palate with lots of ripe fruit and very fine, almost imperceptible tannins. Extremely well mannered. I wonder how Michel Rolland will change the style? 17.5/20
