Bordeaux Futures in Focus: 2020 Figeac
We're excited to offer the 2020 Château Figeac, highlighting one of the outstanding 2020 Bordeaux Futures at HDH. A best-selling wine of our futures campaign this year, Château Figeac has certainly been a property to watch since its blockbuster 2015 vintage. The château's recently appointed Director Frédéric Faye continues to make history at Figeac with back-to-back benchmark releases.
The 2020 Château Figeac is a Merlot-driven blend leading with 37% plus 32% Cabernet Franc and 31% Cabernet Sauvignon. Neal Martin describes this super-classic wine as having "a typical Left Bank personality but with Right Bank precocity. The palate conveys a sense of vibrancy and vigor on the entry, a dash of black pepper and allspice mingling with the mélange of red and black fruit."

Historically, the grand vin from Château Figeac was blended with equal proportions of Merlot and the two Cabernets. Under Faye's direction, however, the château has worked to mitigate vintage variation by blending individual wines from single vineyard parcels, and as such has successfully maximized each vintage's quality potential. Considerable investments in modernization over the past decade have played a significant role in the estate's successes and paved the way for a new era at Château Figeac.

2020 Château Figeac Critical Accolades
"This is a really sophisticated young wine with tobacco, crushed stone, currants and dark chocolate on the nose, following through to a medium to full body with intense yet linear tannins and a spicy, fresh finish. Some cloves and black pepper. Graphite at the end. Very long."
(97-98 points) – James Suckling
"Gentle, juicy and pure with nothing overdone. Merlot provides the broad-brush sweetness on attack, the Cabernet the fresh, minerally notes on the finish. Fine grain of tannin and aromatic complexity on the nose and palate; the finesse is there." (17.5+ points) – James Lawther MW for Jancis Robinson
"Opaque purple-black colored, it bursts from the glass with a beautifully vibrant initial wave of pure, pristine black fruits: fresh black cherries, juicy black plums and ripe blackcurrants. With swirling, a whole array of floral and spice notes is unleashed: lavender, ground cloves, cumin seed, cardamom and rose oil. The medium-bodied palate is surprisingly graceful for the intensity of aromas, featuring ethereal, perfumed black berry notes, framed by a seamless line of freshness and ripe, grainy tannins, finishing on a lingering fragrant earth note. Far more cerebral and quietly introspective than it is hedonic, this could only be Figeac."
(96-98+ points) – Lisa Perrotti-Brown for Wine Advocate
"Deep purple in color, it is initially backward and sultry on the nose... It reveals intense scents of cranberry, raspberry and touches of cassis intermingling with white pepper. This has a typical Left Bank personality but with Right Bank precocity. The palate conveys a sense of vibrancy and vigor on the entry, a dash of black pepper and allspice mingling with the mélange of red and black fruit. The tannins are satin-like in texture, and there’s dark berry fruit and hints of pencil lead and black truffle shavings toward the Pomerol-like finish. This is a magnificent Figeac from head winemaker Frédéric Faye and his team." (96-98 points) – Neal Martin
"A super-classic wine, the 2020 Figeac sizzles with vertical energy. The château has made a number of tremendous wines in recent vintages, but I don't remember a Figeac with this much saline-drenched intensity and mineral drive. The 2020 is superb, but it won't be ready to drink anytime soon. The mixture of soil types and varieties, with the high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon, that is such a signature here, was a huge help in maintaining balance and energy in the wine. Technical Director Frédéric Faye certainly seems to have gotten the most out of the vintage." (95-97 points) – Antonio Galloni
