WS 91
Wine Spectator, March 2009
Blackberry blueberry and plum aromas with hints of sweet tobacco. Full-bodied with chewy tannins and a mineral currant and licorice aftertaste. A little austere but structured. Dense. Impressive. Best after 2014. -JS

Tasted at the Château Figeac vertical at the property. The 2006 Figeac is a success for what was a modest Right Bank vintage. The Cabernet Sauvignon is most expressive on the nose at the moment, reserved but nicely... Tasted at the Château Figeac vertical at the property. The 2006 Figeac is a success for what was a modest Right Bank vintage. The Cabernet Sauvignon is most expressive on the nose at the moment, reserved but nicely defined with pencil lead and light ferrous scents emerging. The palate is medium-bodied with a dash of pepper on the entry. This is youthful but approachable, not long in the mouth, but "cool, calm and collected." This is a fine Figeac destined to give a couple of decade's worth of pleasure. Tasted June 2015. - Neal Martin

Rich chocolate aromas surround dark blackberry fruit over lighter notes of clay and earth. In the mouth the wine has great balance front to back. It is very smooth lush and bright. Higher toned acids keep the bright red fruits light and fresh allowing the tannic power to build through the finish leaving lingering notes of rich coffee cherry and hints of vanilla.
