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)

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

Tasted at the Château Figeac vertical at the property. It is some years since I last tasted the 2000 Figeac. There is a valid argument that it is being eclipsed by the 2001, but it is still a fine Saint Emilion. The nose... Tasted at the Château Figeac vertical at the property. It is some years since I last tasted the 2000 Figeac. There is a valid argument that it is being eclipsed by the 2001, but it is still a fine Saint Emilion. The nose is clean and fresh with strong graphite aromas, very Left Bank in style with black truffle and smoky notes developing. The palate is masculine and rather austere at first, though I notice that it gains fleshiness in the glass. It is nicely weighted, but does not quite deliver the sensuality or joie-de-vivre of the 2001 (which is actually like a lot of millennial Bordeaux). Let's see how it matures over the next few years, but my money would be on the 2001. Tasted June 2015. - Neal Martin
