2014 Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé B

The 2014 vintage year produced undeniably balanced wines, with delicate tannins and rich aromas. The 2014 Chateau Figeac conveys the unique character of Saint-Emilion Premier Cru Classe’s soils. The wine shows precision, harmony, and elegance with intense red fruits and spices scents. The vibrant palate offers lovely accord. The forward attack evolves into fullness on the mid-palate, bringing creaminess to the texture. The remarkably defined and mineral tannins truly reflect the quality of Cabernets. Described as “the most representative of Medoc vintages from Saint-Emilion,” the 2014 Chateau Figeac is 32% Cabernet Sauvignon (which makes for a unique cru), 40% Merlot, and 28% Cabernet Franc. The finish is fresh, powerful, and fruity: a serious wine with great prospects.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Figeac builds on its promise from barrel and delivers a very fulfilling bouquet with red plum, crushed strawberry, cedar and light graphite aromas that I suspect will close down for a period after bottling. (The bottle tasted at the château displayed a subtle incense aroma.) The palate is very well defined with a crisp line of acidity, sorbet fresh in the mouth and fanning out towards its structured, tensile finish. It is a great Figeac, a superb forerunner to the brilliant 2015 and it should not be underestimated. Chapeau winemaker Frédéric Faye and his team. Tasted twice (both in London and at the property) with consistent notes.
