Elles reposent sur un sol profond de graves qui n'est pas sans évoquer le Médoc. L'élevage en bois neuf dure 18 à 22 mois. Château Figeac se distingue également par la part importante de cabernet dans son assemblage (35% cabernet franc, 35% cabernet sauvignon).

Notes de dégustation


The 2020 Figeac is the finest wine that has been bottled to date at this estate since its renaissance began a decade ago. Wafting from the glass with aromas of blackberries and raspberries mingled with cigar wrapper, pencil shavings, licorice and black truffles, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with a suave, harmonious profile, vibrant acids, and beautifully refined structuring tannins. This sapid, complex wine represents the essence of this great terroir. Two years after extensive soil studies of the estate were carried out, and the first growing season to see cover crops used in the vineyards year-round, the 2020 benefited from more coherently demarcated parcels and more precise élevage, which taken together help to account for its edge over the excellent 2019. - WK 04/2023


The 2020 Figeac was bottled in mid-July. It has an exquisite bouquet that unfolds effortlessly in the glass with blackberry, crushed stone, graphite and fresh fig scents. It blossoms with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly edgy tannins on the entry that frame the pure black fruit. It's very harmonious and silky smooth in texture that almost disguises what Frédéric Faye terms the "verticality" of the wine. Fresh and saline on the finish with just a light black pepper touch on the aftertaste. An absolute treat. (Drink between 2030-2065) - NM 02/2023


Ce qui surprend, d'entrée, c'est la fraîcheur de Figeac. Certes, me direz-vous, il y a du Cabernet Sauvignon… c’est juste, mais ça n'explique pas tout ! Le bouquet révèle d'intenses notes fruitées avec des parfums de sureau. De caractère crémeux en attaque, le vin affiche un caractère aromatique soutenu ainsi qu’une élégante puissance tannique. La finale ne manque bien entendu pas d’également souligner la notion de fraîcheur de par son caractère juteux, salin, crayeux et très long ! Un Figeac d'une rare finesse, élancé et puissant. Quand la subtilité, la profondeur et la vigueur sont de mèche, la grandeur est inévitablement au rendez-vous ! 2027-2055 - YB 01/2023


Very subtle and classy aromas of blackberries, hazelnuts and chocolate with some wet bark. It’s so subtle on the nose. Full-bodied, yet so fine and polished with an inner strength to this. Ultra-fine and polished tannins that run the length of the wine. This goes on for minutes. Classy. Sophisticated. 37% merlot, 32% cabernet franc and 31% cabernet sauvignon. Try after 2027, but it’s one for the cellar. - 01/2023


The Grand Vin 2020 Château Figeac checks in as 37% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Franc, and 31% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 18 months in new barrels. They also utilize plenty of press wine, and the 2020 has 8% in the blend. Straight-up awesome aromatics of crème de cassis, ripe black cherries, iron, spring flowers, and an almost bloody, salty character emerge from the glass, and it's full-bodied, with a seamless mouthfeel, gorgeous tannins, plenty of mid-palate depth, and absolutely perfectly integrated oak. It's still tight and reserved, which is certainly the vintage, so do your best to hide these in the cellar. It should hit the early stages of its prime drinking window in 8-10 years and will have 30+ of overall longevity. It will unquestionably flirt with perfection at maturity. - 03/2023
