Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

94 WE / 94 DE / 91 WS / 91 WA

The dominance of Cabernet Sauvignon in Figeac has really shone through in 2006. It has produced a dark, serious wine, mineral, austere and still very young. But there is weight there; the black berry fruits show over the tannin and the wood and dry core integrate well with this fruit. The finish is surprisingly fresh after all this structure. But the wine does need aging. - RV, Wine Enthusiast

A serious wine that’s currently showing firm black fruits, finely worked tannins and very pretty cinnamon and clove notes on the finish. There is clear length and depth to the wine, which shows a real sense of extension and flex, slowly building in tension and complexity. Drinking Window 2018 - 2040 - Jane Anson, DE

Blackberry, blueberry and plum aromas, with hints of sweet tobacco. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a mineral, currant and licorice aftertaste. A little austere, but structured. Dense. Impressive. Best after 2014. - Wine Spectator

Tasted at the Château Figeac vertical at the property. The 2006 Figeac is a success for what was a modest Right Bank vintage. The Cabernet Sauvignon is most expressive on the nose at the moment, reserved but nicely defined with pencil lead and light ferrous scents emerging. The palate is medium-bodied with a dash of pepper on the entry. This is youthful but approachable, not long in the mouth, but "cool, calm and collected." This is a fine Figeac destined to give a couple of decade's worth of pleasure. Tasted June 2015. - NM, Wine Advocate
