Château Figeac

About Château Figeac

Château Figeac Premier Grand Cru Classé (B) dates back to second-century Gallo-Roman origins; Undoubtedly one of the greatest producers and terroirs of the Saint-Émilion appellation, if not the whole of Bordeaux. Mentioned by experts in the same breath as Ausone and Cheval Blanc.

 

Viniculture

Once the largest property in the appellation, many plots were sold over the years to create and enlarge properties like neighbouring Château Cheval Blanc and even Pomerol’s La Conseillante. Figeac has excellent terroir, and after the estate was not awarded Premier Grand Cru Classé (A) status in 2012 there was renewed determination to put the property back to its rightful place at the top of Saint-émilion. Michel Rolland was hired to consult and Frederic Faye was appointed to oversee wine-making. The result has been a dramatic upturn in quality and critical acclaim.

 

Figeac is unusual in Saint-Émilion is being situated on gravelly soils. This means a much higher percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes here. The wine itself is particularly unique, and buyers may come across a number of allusions to this - "lively and very "Figeac". A higher proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend, as opposed to the very Merlot dominant Ausone and Cheval Blanc, Figeac, is a cerebral balance of Left-Bank perfumed mint, cedar and cassis, with the wonderfully lush cashmere texture and fruit of Merlot.

Figeac 1959 (2x75cl)

Wine Advocate (92)

Tasted at the Château Figeac vertical at the property. The 1959 Château Figeac is a successful Saint Emilion considering that 50% of the fruit came from vines planted after the devastating frosts of 1956. It has a typical bouquet for a 1959 Right Bank: blood orange mixed with tinned apricot and honey, opening up with peppermint/camphor scents with aeration, lending it that exotic touch (perhaps thanks due to those young vines?). The palate is medium-bodied, not as complex as the 1961 perhaps, but marked by a fine line of acidity and a hint of truffle towards the languid finish. I've actually had better bottles before, despite the provenance being ex-château. That said, there is no doubt that it remains a very fine Saint Emilion, even if surpassed by vintages in the 1950s and 1960s. Tasted June 2015.

Figeac 1966 (2x150cl)

Wine Advocate (96)

Tasted at the Figeac dinner at Christies, the 1966 Figeac effortless reproduced the stunning showing at the property in 2015. The bouquet is just wonderful: perfumed and detailed. Perhaps the only difference from the previous bottle is that it was less exotic, a little more classic in style. The palate is medium-bodied, beautifully balanced and extremely refined. Yet it does not shortchange you on depth or intensity as it builds and then fans out on the finish. The fruit profile is more black, yet it is driven by secondary notes of cedar and hints of tobacco that are manifested by the Cabernet component that clearly thrived in this vintage. A brilliant wine. Tasted March 2017.

Stephen Tanzer - Vinous (89)

Medium-deep ruby. Expressive, complex aromas of raspberry, redcurrant, cherry, tobacco, grilled meat, currant leaf and smoky oak; shows an almost Graves-like roasted character. Juicy and fresh in the mouth, but also lush in the style of the vintage, with the cabernet sauvignon giving the wine lovely vinosity. Subtly spicy cinnamon flavor. Finishes with dusty tannins and good length.

This is amazing for the vintage. Full and silky, with velvety tannins. Long and rich, with a bright fruit character -- think black figs. The Cabernet Sauvignon gets to 35% of the blend in this vintage. This is delicious now, but it will be much better in five years. Pull the cork in 2015.

Wine Spectator (91-94)

A very direct, compact and muscular style, with a dark core of currant, steeped blueberry and plum notes, liberally coated with roasted vanilla and melted licorice accents. Rather rounded for the vintage and a step behind the '11, relying more on a caressing edge than vigorous drive. Score range: 91-94 -JM

The aromas of blackcurrants and fresh forest floor are evocative. Oyster shells and stones. Turns to blackcurrants. Medium to full body and firm and silky tannins that are polished and coat your mouth. The palate is ever dense and concentrated. Needs four to five years to open but already a beautiful red.

Jeb Dunnuck (98+)

Another brilliant wine from the genius of Frédéric Faye, the 2016 Château Figeac checks in as 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc that spent 19 months in new French oak. Roughly 75% of the production made it into the grand vin. This deeply colored beauty is a legendary wine in the making and offers ultra-pure aromas and flavors of crème de cassis, smoke tobacco, dried herbs, chocolate, truffle, and graphite. Showing more violets notes with time in the glass, it builds incrementally on the palate, with flawless balance as well as incredible elegance, no hard edges, and a finish that won't quit. Readers will have a blast comparing the 2016 and 2015 vintages over the coming 3-4 decades and this estate is firing on all cylinders. This will most likely merit a triple-digit rating in 7-8 years and keep for 4 decades or more.

Figeac 2019 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (98-100)

The 2019 Figeac is composed of 30% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon and 36% Cabernet Franc, harvested from the 13th of September to the 7th of October. The alcohol this year is 14.1% and the pH is 3.7. Steal-your-heart scents of mulberries, black raspberries, Black Forest cake and cassis prance ever so gracefully out of the glass, followed by nuances of plum preserves, red roses, cinnamon toast and clove oil plus just a waft of lavender. Medium to full-bodied, the palate shimmers with electric energy, framed by a solid backbone of wonderfully ripe, grainy Cabernet-led tannins and bold freshness, finishing with fantastic persistence and with tons of emerging earth and floral layers. This is a simply stunning, seemingly effortless, beautifully harmonious expression of the vineyard and the vintage - bravo!

Barrel Sample. Fantastic black currant aromas from the Cabernet Sauvignon feed into perfumed Cabernet Franc. The result is a wine that is structured with powerful tannins under the joyous floral fruits. This is a wine with considerable potential while at the same time showing a fresh finish.

Unlike many other Bordeaux second wines, Petit Figeac is a micro-cuvée coming from some of Château Figeac’s best parcels (albeit younger vines). It is crafted to be a stylistic introduction to Figeac itself, and only around 40,000 bottles are filled each year. As the vineyard has been replanted since 2009, a lot of the newer parcels have been going into Petit Figeac, which is why its quality has risen so much over the past decade.
