Château Figeac St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

$279

The Cabernet comes through strongly on the nose - classic Figeac in many ways - black fruit, a touch of cassis, pencil and a touch of rose petal. The palate is drop-dead gorgeous, its foundation a lattice of filigree tannin and perfectly judged acidity. It is very fresh from its vivacious start to its pencil-lead finish imbued with effortless grace...Head winemaker Frederic Faye has overseen a tip-top classic Figeac...boasting a level of precision up there with the very best in the Right Bank. It was difficult to find fault with this quite astonishing Saint Emilion and who knows what could transpire once it is in bottle. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

16.5+/20 (91+/100) Темно-бордовое, абсолютно непрозрачное. Закрытый аромат: шоколад и чёрные ягоды, есть тон черноплодки. Тельное с высокой кислотностью и интенсивными, вяжущими танинами. Насыщенное во вкусе. Есть ощущение, что это будет бомба, но не сейчас. #annualclarettasting

Buy now and don't open for 20-30 years (at least!). But still super tasty now.

I’m not sure what to say here. All of the reviews and scores talk about a classic but I didn’t feel it. This was nice and of course it’s not at it’s potential but I’ve had Bordeaux which is young but shows class early and you can see the journey it will take but I couldn’t see this here. Tried over two days and gave plenty of air but just wouldn’t open up. Definitely better with food (hard cheese). Herbs, toast, some limited fruit, smoke and leather. Tannins are not aggressive but not really integrated leading to a shallow finish. Sorry to swim against the tide.
