Description

‘Fabulous! Ewas our initial reaction to the 2009 Ch. Figeac, and the more we continued to taste it, the more this impression intensified. After a morning of tasting high-alcohol, turbo-charged Merlots, it was pure relief to be firmly on Cabernet-dominant territory.

The freshness afforded by the Cabernets in 2009 was clear to see; the luscious, crunchy blackcurrant fruit of the Cabernet Sauvignon (33%) allied harmoniously with the perfume, minerality and elegance of the Cabernet Franc (33%). The remaining proportion of Merlot was just enough to add a juicy plumpness to the wine. All in all, this is a perfect blend; one of our top wines of the vintage.
