An aromatic and elegant Saint-Emilion red wine

The vines of Saint-Emilion benefited from sunny and warm weather until the end of the growing season, and this allowed to harvest perfectly ripe and healthy grapes. In 2015, Figeac’s great terroir was perfectly expressed, especially with its gravelly hills and its three complementary grape varieties. The 2015 Chateau Figeac blends 29% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Franc and 43% Cabernet Sauvignon.

The aromatic depth of the Cabernets is just exceptional. We discover a showcase of floral scents through the Cabernets Franc with the Cabernet Sauvignon completing the freshness of the bouquet with fruitiness and spiciness. The palate is abound with the sensation of Merlot’s juicy flesh that envelops the Château Figeac 2015. This gives it a full-bodied mouthfeel with a velvety texture. The tannic structure follows through to the end to give a long and persistent finish, being true to the style of Chateau Figeac.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The recent leaps and bounds in improvements that have occurred at this great estate, equating to a dramatic increase in intensity and complexityùwithout compromising the husky, soft-spoken, sultry voice that is Figeacùis a monumental achievement. Kudos to Frederic Faye and his team for so beautifully expressing what was clearly an extraordinary vintage at Chateau Figeac! Blended of 29% Merlot, 43% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Figeac reveals vibrant black cherries, cassis, red currants, black plums and licorice notes with touches of cigar boxes, bouquet garni, potpourri, damp soil and black pepper. Medium-bodied, delicately crafted and with nuanced, quietly intense layers of vivacious red and black fruits, the palate features a solid frame of polished, rounded tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and minerally.
