Château Figeac 'Four Vintage Mixed Case' at £650 per 4 bottle case in bond
2016 Château Figeac, St. Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé (B)
98+ points, Neal Martin, vinous.com (August 2020)
The 2016 Figeac has a nose of real pedigree, featuring very well-defined, ferrous black fruit with hints of truffle and tobacco and conveying exceptional mineralité and tension. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, a fine bead of acidity and wonderful structure and density toward the finish. This is a seriously fine proposition, although it is a surly Saint-Émilion that may well close down for a while before blazing brightly in 15–20 years’ time. Drink 2023-2060
2015 Château Figeac, St. Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé (B)
97 points, Neal Martin, vinous.com (July 2019)
The 2015 Figeac has a wonderful bouquet with pure blackberry, raspberry and mineral aromas, very focused and precise with discreet earthy scents emerging with time. The palate is very precise with crisp acidity, taut and linear with a very detailed and persistent finish. This is quintessential Figeac trying to steal some of the glory from the imperious 2016! It needs time but just wait until this blossoms. Drink 2025-2055
2010 Château Figeac, St. Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé (B)
97 points, Neal Martin, vinous.com (April 2020)
The 2010 Figeac has a youthful and exuberant bouquet with black cherries, boysenberry, cassis and violets that soar from the glass. 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 a few days earlier. Drink 2024-2050
2009 Château Figeac, St. Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé (B)
94 points, Neal Martin, vinous.com (March 2019)
The 2009 Figeac has one of the more Oriental-inspired bouquets amongst its peer group, one that is extremely well defined with scents of pressed rose petals and rolled tobacco emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. Fresh and vibrant although disappointingly, it cuts off dramatically on the finish. Maybe with time it will just broaden out a little? I hope so because otherwise this is splendid. Drink 2023-2040.
