    Figeac is known to be almost Médoc-like with its more savoury and pensive character. As a result, it is not always easy to taste en primeur as it takes time for its true character to surface. This is certainly true again in 2007. Its appealing deep ruby colour was the first attraction. No opaque inky purple in sight! On the palate, it displayed a velvety core of crunchy ripe fruit and savoury characters. A really soulful wine that did not feel thoroughly “worked” - a rarity in this vintage. Besides Cheval Blanc and Ausone, this was our favourite St. Emilion. Tasted twice with consistent notes. Drink 2012-2023

  • Neal Martin, June 2017, Score: 85

    Tasted at BI Wine Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Figeac is a disappointing wine that really puts into context how far this estate has travelled in recent years. The aromatics take a while to really coalesce, eventually offering herbaceous red and black fruit, melted tar and bell pepper aromas, the latter emanating from the Cabernet component. The palate is medium-bodied with rather brittle tannin, very masculine in style with a firm backbone, but it comes across as rather mean and raw on the finish. I would be drinking bottles in the near future. Tasted February 2017. 85/100. Drink 2017-2023

  • Jancis Robinson, April 2008, Score: 16.5++

    Very deep crimson. Toasty nose with a hint of oak. Very fresh fruit, pretty sleek texture and just a little too much sweet oak in evidence at this point. A hint of green on the finish. Pretty inky and fades fast. More transparent than most with a very nice gentle finish. Very ‘relaxed'.Doubtless it will improve in bottle as Figeac always seems to do so miraculously. Drink 2012-19.

Region

St Emilion

South of Pomerol lies the medieval, perched village of St Emilion. Surrounding St Emilion are vines that produce round, rich and often hedonistic wines. Despite a myriad of soil types, two main ones dominate - the gravelly, limestone slopes that delve down to the valley from the plateau and the valley itself which is comprised of limestone, gravel, clay and sand. Despite St Emilion's popularity today, it was not until the 1980s to early 1990s that attention was brought to this region. Robert Parker, the famous wine critic, began reviewing their Merlot-dominated wines and giving them hefty scores. The rest is history as they say. Similar to the Médoc, there is a classification system in place which dates from 1955 and outlines several levels of quality. These include its regional appellation of St Emilion, St Emilion Grand Cru, St Emilion Grand Cru Classé and St Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé, which is further divided into "A" (Ausone and Cheval Blanc) and "B" (including Angélus, Canon, Figeac and a handful of others). To ensure better accuracy, the classification is redone every 10 years enabling certain châteaux to be upgraded or downgraded depending on on the quality of their more recent vintages.
