Intense aromas of wet earth, leaves, sweet berries and cinnamon follow through to a full body, velvety and dense tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Opulent style. Just opening now, but this shows lots of stuffing... Intense aromas of wet earth, leaves, sweet berries and cinnamon follow through to a full body, velvety and dense tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Opulent style. Just opening now, but this shows lots of stuffing, even if it does tighten down on the palate. Integrated and fine. Drink or hold.

This is very tight, showing a prominent roasted apple wood and bittersweet cocoa frame more today, though the core of dense currant paste, blackberry pâte de fruit and plum sauce waits in reserve. Gorgeous singed spice... This is very tight, showing a prominent roasted apple wood and bittersweet cocoa frame more today, though the core of dense currant paste, blackberry pâte de fruit and plum sauce waits in reserve. Gorgeous singed spice, anise and toasted fig bread notes flitter through the finish, though this needs some time in the cellar to resolve itself fully. A very distinctive, structured expression of St.-Emilion. Best from 2016 through 2035. – JM

In 2010, it is complex with a dense structure, tight mineral texture and dense wood. Underneath, the ripe black fruits bring the promise for the long-term future. Give this wine at least 10 years.

Tasted at the Château Figeac vertical at the property and then in Bordeaux a year later. The 2010 Figeac was a "problem child" in its youth, very variable and difficult to pin down, vexing on occasion. Now with a couple of years in bottle, it is really beginning to show what it can do and it far surpassed my expectations. Certainly, it is more withdrawn on the nose compared to the more generous 2009 Figeac. The aromatics are holding everything back. Then, with continued aeration it reveals a subtle marine influence—seaweed and sea spray scents, estuary mudflats. The palate is medium-bodied with moderate depth, but what really distinguishes this wine are the fineness of the tannin, the symmetry of the structure and freshness on the finish, facets hitherto kept secret. As such, it surpasses the 2009, the weightless but intense finish beckoning you to take another sip. The aromatics need to up their game and match what's evolving on the palate—if they do, this will be a very serious Figeac. Tasted July 2016. - Neal Martin

Fresh herbs dark ripe berries licorice cassis and green peppercorn aromas fill the perfume. Full bodied tannic and slightly austere in character with intensity licorice and bright black cherry flavors this is a successful vintage for the traditionally styled Figeac.

Very dark purplish crimson still. Remarkably voluptuous nose – almost Napa Valley! But there is lovely freshness and rigour – and cleanliness – on the palate. Really brisk and Cabernet but with no suggestion of austerity... Very dark purplish crimson still. Remarkably voluptuous nose – almost Napa Valley! But there is lovely freshness and rigour – and cleanliness – on the palate. Really brisk and Cabernet but with no suggestion of austerity. Should be a very fine Figeac. 18/20

Cassis, blueberry, flowers and clove on the precise, vibrant nose. Then tight and imploded on the palate, with an almost minty, peppery austerity to the black and blue fruit flavors; hardly your typical 2010! This very pure, spicy Saint-Emilion has the structure of a cabernet, and its youthfully forbidding tannins call for at least eight years of patience. It will merit an even higher score if it blossoms in the bottle. 91+

Planted to 35% cabernet sauvignon 35% cabernet franc 30% merlot. Gravely soils. Darkly colored the aromas are hard to discern at this point with faints hints of fresh earth and green spices popping up. Medium weight the subtle flavors lean towards fresher aspects than deeply fruited ones. Some harder tannins and roasted coffee flavors combine on the finish. Enjoy in 5 years and over the next 10-15.
