Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Petit Figeac, St Emilion Grand Cru, 2020
Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent

A blend of 71% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2020 Petit-Figeac is deep garnet-purple in color. It sashays out with glamorous notes of crushed black and red cherries, mulberries, and rose petals, followed by hints of cinnamon toast, fragrant soil, and sandalwood. The medium-bodied palate is tightly wound with youthful red and black berry layers, complemented by minerally sparks and floral nuances, framed by fine-grained tannins, and finishing with a cheery lift. It is very classic and should age well!

The 2020 Petit-Figeac has a tightly wound, pencil box-tinged bouquet that suggests there is more than the 10% Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. It's pretty Left Bank in style. The palate is medium-bodied with a graphite entry that dovetails into a fleshier mid-palate. The 30% new oak is neatly integrated with a healthy dash of black pepper on the finish. Fine.

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.
