An exception for the right bank, Figeac is composed of 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc and only 30% Merlot. My favorite of the right bank flight, and a serious contender for wine of the night! The Figeac was natural, effortless claret that had a lovely herbal bouquet with hints of both olives and chocolate. This had the complexity, but also the drinkability that makes me want to spend more time and drink more of it. It was flawless texturally; layered, medium bodied and fresh and lifted on the back end. Lots of flavor and complexity can be had here without any cost to freshness… But your wallet will feel it! What a bottle!

Like fine Burgundy, this graceful and beautifully mature wine, shows layers of sweet red summer berries, wet autumn floor, cedar wood, aged tobacco and roasted herbs. The elegant and perfectly defined palate combines inner sweetness and a fresh, fruity finish which ONLY can derive from Bdx. Top-notch showing!

Some spicy overtone but lacking fruit depth. Still a pleasant wine

One of my favorite wines from the tasting! A medium nose intensity of plums, licorice, black pepper, roasted spices, red currants and bramble berries. The palate is extremely complexity and balanced with cassis, blackberries, oregano, dried crushed leaves, charred wood, oak, smoke, all framed by bright minerality. #MWtasting
