    Tasting Notes

    43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Franc. Deep colour to the rim. Reticent and well within itself but ripe and complex in aspect. Hint of blackcurrant pastille as it opens. Layered fruit on the palate with a maturity and sweetness that is evocative of the year. Powerful, punchy tannins but coated by the fruit. All pretty harmonious and a long life ahead.

    The 2015 Figeac is a step up from the 2014 with exquisite scents of red berry fruit, incense, rose petal and crush stone. Pixelated with wonderful precision. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, wonderful backbone allied with a sense of symmetry. It is more saline than previous vintages, with saliva flowing after the wine has exited. One of the standouts from the Right Bank in this vintage. Tasted at the chateau. [Neal Martin, 06/12/2021]

    "The recent leaps and bounds in improvements that have occurred at this great estate, equating to a dramatic increase in intensity and complexity-without compromising the husky, soft-spoken, sultry voice that is Figeac-is a monumental achievement. Kudos to Frederic Faye and his team for so beautifully expressing what was clearly an extraordinary vintage at Chateau Figeac! Blended of 29% Merlot, 43% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Figeac reveals vibrant black cherries, cassis, red currants, black plums and licorice notes with touches of cigar boxes, bouquet garni, potpourri, damp soil and black pepper. Medium-bodied, delicately crafted and with nuanced, quietly intense layers of vivacious red and black fruits, the palate features a solid frame of polished, rounded tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and minerally."
