TASTING NOTES

"The 2016 Figeac is comprised of 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 26% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple colored, the nose is a little broody and reticent at this very youthful stage, slowly unfolding to reveal profound plum preserves, crème de cassis, black raspberries and star anise with hints of moss-covered bark, truffles and tilled loam plus a waft of red currants and raspberry leaves sparks. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is practically quivering with energy, offering glimpses at tightly wound black fruit and mineral/ferrous layers, framed by very firm, ripe tannins and wonderful tension, finishing long with the spices coming through. This will need a good 7-8 years to come round and then should cellar for 40+ years. Very serious, beautifully poised and sophisticated personality this vintage." Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Interim Issue, November 2018

"Intense and muscular, great style. The terroir of gravel has enabled the 26% of Cabernet Franc and 38% of Cabernet Sauvignon to express themselves with a finesse and depth found nowhere else on this bank." Michel Bettane/Thierry Desseauve, The World of Fine Wine, Issue 56

"Splendid texture and finesse to this young Figeac with a pure silk texture. Full-bodied and ultra-fine. Lovely combination of fruit and freshness. The polish is gorgeous to this. Precision redefined. Pretty follow-up to the 2015." JamesSuckling.com

"Mid blueish crimson. Fresh and nicely composed (unforced) on the nose. Rather cool and backward. Definitely not forcing itself on you but the fruit (and yeast?) seem rather wild in a good way. Really very fine and characterful – rather than made to a recipe." JancisRobinson.com
