K&L Notes

Big, dense, and chewy, the Figeac is full of ripe middle fruit, balanced by firm but ripe tannins. Here is a wine of great purity. As good as their 1982? Should age well.

    The stars are aligned. This wine vies with Cheval Blanc in 2000. Clyde scores it 95. Superb wine!

    An exception for the right bank, Figeac is composed of 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc and only 30% Merlot. My favorite of the right bank flight, and a serious contender for wine of the night! The Figeac was natural, effortless claret that had a lovely herbal bouquet with hints of both olives and chocolate. This had the complexity, but also the drinkability that makes me want to spend more time and drink more of it. It was flawless texturally; layered, medium bodied and fresh and lifted on the back end. Lots of flavor and complexity can be had here without any cost to freshness… But your wallet will feel it! What a bottle!
