Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

Chateau-Figeac's hallmark characteristics of elegance, freshness and harmony are recognised the whole world over. Already pleasant in its youth, Figeac gradually reveals its complexity over time to offer a wide range of sensations in the glass and always moments of great thrill and emotion.

Critical Acclaim

"A reticent, muscular style, with lots of macerated dark currant and plum notes and ample briary grip cutting through on the finish. This has depth and heft and needs some time to stretch out fully.
Barrel Sample: 92-95 Points"
95 Points

"A rich, smooth and velvety wine, this has richness and weight along with delicious acidity. There is a good depth of texture and structure along with a ripe feel.
Barrel Sample: 93-95 Points"
95 Points

"A like the quality of the tannins in this with plenty of subtle berry and chocolate character. Full body, with a lovely acidity. Wonderful length to it. This is really pretty.
Barrel Sample: 93-94 Points"
94 Points

"Deep ruby. Ripe, aromatic nose of dark berries, licorice and flowers, complicated by a mineral nuance. Spice and pepper notes complement cassis and minerals on the palate, with a whiff of blood orange adding lift. This youthfully tight wine finishes long and firm but not dry.
Barrel Sample: 89-92 Points"
92 Points
