Château Figeac

Château Figeac

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Very dark ruby robe that does not show the 39 years of the wine. Enthralling nose of cedar, tobacco and top soil notes, followed by a medium bodied, long and elegant mouth made of dark fruits, leather, asian spices and a hint of licorice. This is an amazing bottle by any counts and its in its infancy, lots of tension here. Phenomenal drinking now but trust us, no rush. Wow !! — a month ago

Special wine for a very special occasion. Perfect match!

Château La Dominique

Grand Cru Classé St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Mid to dark Crimson. Initially not giving much on the nose after decanting. After some time and a lot of swirling in the glass, aromas of black currant and McBaren’s Plum Cake pipe tobacco which I used to smoke at college many decades ago. Unusually for La Dominque this is 100% Merlot with zero Cabernet Franc. Palate is still lively and fresh with a long future ahead. Supple and persistent. La Dominique is surrounded by high profile neighbours with the best parcels bordered by Cheval Blanc. Other neighbours include Figeac, Conseillante and L’Evangile. Will leave the next for 2 or 3 years. — 4 months ago

Lovely domaine, I like your description (MCBaren’s Plum Cake pipe tobacco 🙃 we both stopped smoking, I guess... but still miss this)

Tried a few styles of pipe tobacco Peter back then but often came back to the McBarens Plum Cake - very aromatic.

Château Figeac

La Grange Neuve de Figeac Saint- Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Not an easy vintage for anyone in bordeaux. This is very elegant and understated with this sophisticated blend of Merlot and the cabernets. Right bank meets left bank and is a good cross. One of the last vintages of the old regime at Figeac and highly recommended !! — 2 months ago

Castello di Ama

Vigna l'Apparita Toscana IGT Merlot 2009

Nice comparator to the Ch. Figeac - terroir matters. Love this. Tradition be damned. Nose o f forest floor, and toasted mushroom. Juicy and long finish. Lovely wine — 4 months ago
