Château Figeac St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

$175

This has far more intrigue on the nose than the 2005 with the Cabernet Franc relishing this propitious growing season. Savoury fruits, a touch of fig and earth although perhaps it could just do with a little more harmony. The palate is very elegant with grainy tannins, firm grip with a tinge of espresso become more evident towards the finish. This is just beginning to develop character but it needs another decade. But great potential. Drink now-2020+. eRobertParker.com (Neal Martin)

Heaven in a bottle. The 1/3 blends of Cab, Can Franc and Merlot arrived at a beautiful juncture of ever evolving tastes and smells. Served with a perfectly grilled porterhouse. The last slurp was just a bowl full of black cherries. #memorymoment

An exception for the right bank, Figeac is composed of 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc and only 30% Merlot. My favorite of the right bank flight, and a serious contender for wine of the night! The Figeac was natural, effortless claret that had a lovely herbal bouquet with hints of both olives and chocolate. This had the complexity, but also the drinkability that makes me want to spend more time and drink more of it. It was flawless texturally; layered, medium bodied and fresh and lifted on the back end. Lots of flavor and complexity can be had here without any cost to freshness… But your wallet will feel it! What a bottle!

Awesome. Smokey, leathery, complex and deep. Palate is elegant and silky. Such nice balance. Will 15+ more years but def in its window now.

Stuffed full of funk. Briney olives, freshly butchered meat, violets and plum. Palate staining. Bringing it!

Can't imagine a more perfect St Emillion. Embodies nearly everything I want in a big Bordeaux. Still thinking about this wine.

Maybe it's just me, but these 2000s skew so savory and beautiful, another gorgeous gift as I reimmerse myself in classic wine.

Tobacco but delicate and integrated Very nice wine. Rich tobacco leaf aromas. Very well made wine. Silky and rich. As good as 1990 Beaucastel, as a point of value comparison. Buy
