Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Château Figeac, 1er Grand Cru Classé, St Emilion, 2007

Reticent on the nose, showing only hints of gravely, stony hedgerow fruits; mulberry and raspberry on the palate, and a good lift of acidity for a fresh finish. A blend of 40% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon.

ABV:

92/100
Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux

Tobacco and soft brambled fruit on the nose, this is delicate and enticing, at a sweet spot for drinking. Expect touches of white truffle, campfire smoke, saffron strands, black pepper, blackberry and raspberry puree, and fresher pulses of cranberry and white pepper. 33hl/h yield, 100% new oak for ageing. Harvest September 24 to October 2.

Neal Martin, Vinous

Having tasted the 2007 Figeac a few times, I was intrigued how this bottle would show. The nose does not possess the intensity of the 2008. The Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon impart tobacco scents, autumn leaves and a touch of ash. You kind of wish there was more fruit. The palate is slightly better since there is more fruit than the nose suggests, quite peppery and maybe a little rigid towards the finish. It lacks some finesse on the finish, but at least there is decent length. Tasted from a bottle from my own cellar.

Château Figeac

Château Figeac

Chateau Figeac takes its name from its Roman owner, Figeacus. Two thousand years ago, the agriculturalists of the time spotted the potential of this terroir. Over the interceding years the property grew to 200 hectares encompassing great swathes of St Emilion and Pomerol. Sales to the likes of La Conseillante and Cheval Blanc formed new ‘legendary’ estates in their own right.

By the time Figeac was purchased by the current owners, the Manoncourt family, the surface area of vines amounted to just 37 hectares. This unique terroir of rolling gravel croupes is ideally suited to Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, which are planted in almost equal thirds.

Over the past decade, huge investment in personnel, the vineyard and the construction of a state-of-the-art winery have elevated the reputation of this great domaine. In September 2022, Figeac was promoted to Premier Cru Classé ‘A’ in the new St Emilion classification. This accolade is vindication, if it were needed of the quality of their wines and thoroughly deserved recognition for the efforts of the Manoncourt family, their astute technical Director, Frédéric Faye and oenologist, Michel Rolland.

Figeac’s wines are some of the most sought after in the region. Particular highlights include: 2016, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021.
