Description

Ch. Figeac stands out in some style in 2015. We have a soft spot for the wines of this estate and found the wines to be triumphant again this year. Fine, stylish and with generous gravitas, the wine immediately appeals in the glass with a tremendous dark purple colour. Lively, with spice evident on the nose and dancing on the palate, the highlight here is the really super-fine tannins which are just wonderfully integrated.

The finish is tasty, harmonious and refreshing. We loved the tension and underlying power of the wine. There is the coolness shared by the 2015s, but slightly more restrained. It's a wine which makes you happy to taste, drink and enjoy. Really delicious and complete, t is very much Ch. Figeac.

Blend: 29% Merlot, 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Cabernet Franc
