Château Figeac ist ein 1er Grand Cru Classé von St-Emilion. Seine Weinberge grenzen an die von Cheval Blanc und bilden mit 40 Hektar den grössten Weinberg der Appellation. Sie liegen auf einem tiefen Kiesboden, ähnlich der Böden im Médoc. Der Ausbau in neuem Holz dauert 18 bis 22 Monate. Château Figeac zeichnet sich auch durch den hohen Anteil an Cabernet in seiner Assemblage aus (35% Cabernet Franc, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon).

Production was down by half this year—only producing 55,000 bottles. Made from 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Figeac gives up expressive notes of black cherries, plum preserves, black raspberries and kirsch, giving way to hints of dried leaves, cinnamon toast and warm cassis plus a waft of lavender. Medium-bodied, the palate has wonderful vibrancy with a refreshing line cutting through the crunchy black fruits and a firm, finely grained frame, finishing long and spicy.


The 2017 Figeac is outrageously beautiful. Rich, deep and ample, the 2017 soars out of the glass with vertical intensity and explosive power. The flavors are just pulsing with energy. Time in the glass brings out a captivating range of lavender, spice, mint and rose petal overtones. The 2017 Figeac is a towering achievement from Technical Director Frédéric Faye and his team. When Michel Rolland was appointed consulting winemaker some years back, many feared the personality of Figeac would be lost. It is impossible for an outsider to truly know how small or large the impact of a single person is, but Figeac has indisputably been one of the very finest wines of the Right Bank over these last few years. The 2017 is a real "wow" wine; don't miss it. - AG 12/2020


Deep nose of black fruit and savory notes, together with a hint of leather. Impressive concentration and ripeness for the vintage. The acidity is lively but discreet, the fine tannins driving the long and focused finish. Pronounced licorice note right at the end. Drink or hold. Château Quintus vertical tasting. SP.


The grand vin is the 2017 Chateau Figeac, which was made only from first-generation grapes and is 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot, and only 10% Cabernet Franc that was brought up in new French oak. It offers a beautiful bouquet of creme de cassis, tobacco, violets, and tobacco, with a touch of forest floor and earth. Made in a pure, elegant, medium-bodied style, it's beautifully textured, seamless and elegant, with silky tannins and a solid spine of acidity. It's going to be drinkable in 4-5 years and cruise for 15-20 years. - JD 02/2020
