The 2015 Figeac exhibits the highest ever concentration of Cabernet Sauvignon at this estate, and quite possibly the highest Saint-Emilion Cabernet portions ever. 40% Cab supported by equal parts Cabernet Franc and Merlot this wine is truly lovely and beautifully layered. Nice density and incredible richness carried with a deft touch. Elegant and super fine. An all star for sure.

Figeac

Château Figeac Premier Grand Cru Classé (B) dates back to second century Gallo-Roman origins; it is one of the few Saint-Émilion estates to have remained continually occupied since. Indeed the name itself is from the Roman Figeacus who owned a villa on this site. The current château dates from 1780. Once one of the appellation’s largest vineyards, 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.
