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.

There is no stopping the aromatics here. The palate is rich and sensual on the entry with precocious red fruit laced with blood orange and cedar. It firms up a little towards the structured finish that exerts fine grip and there is real persistence in evidence. This is a very classy 2010 Right Bank, this bottle showing even better than the example at BI Wines & Spirits a few days earlier. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners 10-Year On Bordeaux horizontal. -- Neal Martin

Medium to full-bodied, the palate has beautifully ripe, velvety tannins and bold freshness supporting the generous fruit, finishing long and layered.- LPB

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.

Okay, Figeac does more often than most, but even here this is exceptional. The silky texture is evident, but overall this Cabernet dominant is packed with dark berry fruits, firm tannins and a menthol wash through the finish. Liquorice, cassis, blackberry, chocolate, all knitted together and ready to go. They have stepped up another level in recent years, but this gives ample evidence of why Figeac has always been an estate to take extremely seriously.

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.

Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages, September 2015
Very fresh nose, developed and less lively than the 2009 just tasted. Slightly salty and a dry finish. Sweet nose with hint of oak. Impressive but less future than the 2009.
