Tasting Notes

Vinous 94

The 2009 Figeac has an attractive bouquet with black cherries, boysenberry jam, hints of fig and crushed stone, the Cabernet component less expressive than other vintages (as has always been the case.) The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin. It seems to have lost a bit of its puppy fat compared to two or three years ago, but retains a silky smooth texture and very composed and quite persistent finish. Very classy. Tasted at BI Wines & Spirits’ annual Ten Year On tasting. [Neal Martin, 14/03/2019]

Anticipated maturity: 2023-2040

Robert Parker 94

The medium garnet colored 2009 Figeac features a very pretty perfume of rose hip tea, lilacs and cinnamon stick over a core of red and black currant preserves plus hints of dried herbs and sweaty saddles. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers bags of savory fruit layers with plenty of floral sparks, framed by rounded tannins, finishing on a earthy note. [22/02/2019]

Anticipated maturity: 2020-2040
