Chateau Figeac - Saint Emilion

Chateau Figeac - Saint Emilion




Figeac ist ein sehr altes Weingut. Sein Ursprung kann bis zur gallorömischen Zeit zurückverfolgt werden, als die Familie Figeacus im 2. Jahrhundert der Villa, die sie an diesem Ort baute, ihren Namen gab. Das Chateau ging 1982 in den Besitz der aktuellen Eigentümer über. Thierry Manoncourt begann bereits 1947 das Weingut neu zu strukturieren, um es zu einem der größten in Bordeaux zu machen und wurde dabei später von seiner Frau Marie-France unterstützt. Heute haben seine Tochter Laure und sein Schwiegersohn Graf Eric d´Aramon die Leitung des Chateaus übernommen und setzen so die Familientradition fort. Figeac liegt auf einem außergewöhnlich Terroir aus drei Kieselhügeln. Am gesamten rechten Ufer der Gironde ist Figeac das Weingut mit dem höchsten Cabernet-Anteil. Diese Besonderheit verleiht seinen Weinen Eleganz, Langlebigkeit, und Ansehen.

98-100 Parker Punkte für den Chateau Figeac 2022 Saint Emilion Den Chateau Figeac 2022 Saint Emilion beschreibt William Kelley wie folgt:

A blend of 35% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Franc and 31% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2022 Figeac is a brilliant wine with which to celebrate this property's elevation to Premier Grand Cru Classé "A" status. Wafting from the glass with aromas of raspberries and cassis mingled with notions of iris, forest floor, cigar wrapper and pencil lead, it's medium to full-bodied, pure and perfumed, with a deep and multidimensional core of fruit, bright acids and beautifully refined tannins. Serious yet civilized, it's the quintessential Figeac, testament to the late Thierry Manoncourt's vision to plant such a large proportion of Cabernet, and on drought-resistant rootstocks. Such is the inherent complexity of Figeac's terroirs that harvest took place sub-block by sub-block between September 1st and 25th. Congratulations are in order for the Manoncourt family, director Frédéric Faye, consulting winemaker Thomas Duclos and all their team.

This is the earliest ever harvest for Figeac and the fruit is something else. Flowers such as violets. Blackberries. Currants. Cherry blossom. Full-bodied with lovely freshness and depth. Crunchy and juicy. Perfect al dente fruit. 35% merlot , 34% cabernet franc and 31% cabernet sauvignon.

A beautiful wine that, shockingly, reminds me of the 2016, the 2022 Château Figeac checks in as 35% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Franc, and 31% Cabernet Sauvignon that was harvested from the 1st of September to the 25th. Director Frédéric Faye commented that verasion took longer than usual, and they had to do a slight green harvest to get uniform ripeness. The results are stunning. The wine has a vivid purple hue as well as remarkable freshness and purity in its black and blue fruits, which are followed by notes of wild herbs, chocolate, graphite, spring flowers, and a touch of classic Cabernet Sauvignon graphite. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, it has a silky, elegant mouthfeel, beautiful tannins, and a great finish. This classic, ultra-precise Figeac is going to warrant a solid decade of bottle age and be very long-lived given its purity and balance.

It takes nothing to sense all the intensity, freshness, and depth here. But, more importantly, it is the character. The wine is sensuous, sultry, and lively. The fruits are drenched in cashmere, and velvet that caresses your palate. The levels of depth, richness, opulence, and vibrancy must be felt to be believed. The finish, with its seemingly endless waves of black, blue, and red fruits, with their natural spiciness and purity is off the hook. The seamless finish looks at the 60 second mark, and keeps on going! This is the first vintage for Chateau Figeac as Premier Cru Classe A. With this wine, it is clear they deserve it. The wine blends 35% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Franc, and 31% Cabernet Sauvignon. 8% Press wine. 14% ABV, 3.7 pH. Picking took place September 1 - September 26. This is the earliest harvest in the history of Figeac. Yields were 34 hectoliters per hectare. Drink from 2027-206

An incredibly impressive wine in 2022 shaping up to be the wine of the vintage not only as it seems to defy the hot and dry conditions in every way but delivers such confidence and charm it makes it hard to resist. Gorgeous aromatic expression on the nose, open and alive, generous scents of bright bramble fruit and floral notes as well as graphite and cedar. Smooth, supple and generous on the palate, tannins are silky and perfectly weighted giving roundness but also structure with a red berry juiciness and saline bite that is so compelling. Vibrant, dynamic, balanced and precise, the energy is outstanding yet there’s still depth, weight and power underneath. There's not a single thing out of place - utterly seductive and totally moreish. A great effort from the estate now proudly displaying their upgrade to St-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé A for the first time as of the new classification. 3.7pH. 8% press wine. 82% grand vin production. Harvest 1 - 26 September, the earliest ever.

100 Punkte vom Wine Advocate für den Chateau Figeac 2020 Saint EmilionWilliam Kelley zum Chateau Figeac 2020 Saint Emilion im April 2023:
The 2020 Figeac is the finest wine that has been bottled to date at this estate since its renaissance began a decade ago. Wafting from the glass with aromas of blackberries and raspberries mingled with cigar wrapper, pencil shavings, licorice and black truffles, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with a suave, harmonious profile, vibrant acids, and beautifully refined structuring tannins. This sapid, complex wine represents the essence of this great terroir. Two years after extensive soil studies of the estate were carried out, and the first growing season to see cover crops used in the vineyards year-round, the 2020 benefited from more coherently demarcated parcels and more precise élevage, which taken together help to account for its edge over the excellent 2019.

The Grand Vin 2020 Château Figeac checks in as 37% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Franc, and 31% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 18 months in new barrels. They also utilize plenty of press wine, and the 2020 has 8% in the blend. Straight-up awesome aromatics of crème de cassis, ripe black cherries, iron, spring flowers, and an almost bloody, salty character emerge from the glass, and it's full-bodied, with a seamless mouthfeel, gorgeous tannins, plenty of mid-palate depth, and absolutely perfectly integrated oak. It's still tight and reserved, which is certainly the vintage, so do your best to hide these in the cellar. It should hit the early stages of its prime drinking window in 8-10 years and will have 30+ of overall longevity. It will unquestionably flirt with perfection at maturity.

A mesmerizing nose here with flowers such as violets and red roses, then shows cherries and currants with some mineral and black truffles. Full-bodied yet so refined and harmonized with ultra-fine tannins that run the length of the wine. Flavors of perfectly ripened fruit (al dente) with a hazelnut character that comes from the seeds. Incredibly transparent young red. Breathtaking. 37% merlot, 32% cabernet franc and 31% cabernet sauvignon. Drink after 2028 and onwards. Magnificent.

Very subtle and classy aromas of blackberries, hazelnuts and chocolate with some wet bark. It’s so subtle on the nose. Full-bodied, yet so fine and polished with an inner strength to this. Ultrafine and polished tannins that run the length of the wine. This goes on for minutes. Classy. Sophisticated. 37% merlot, 32% cabernet franc and 31% cabernet sauvignon. Try after 2027, but it’s one for the cellar.
 
96 Punkte vom Wine Spectator für den Chateau Figeac 2020 Saint EmilionJames Molsworth zum Chateau Figeac 2020 Saint Emilion im Januar 2023:
A broad-shouldered wine that captures the vintage's heat well in a core of cassis and blackberry fruit flavors, which are dotted with lively savory, tobacco leaf and warm earth accents. Reveals a tarry, grippy edge as well as polish as this pulls deeply from its terroir, leaving an echo of warm paving stone at the very end. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2030 through 2040. 12,480 cases made. –JM

The 2019 Figeac has turned out brilliantly. Wafting from the glass with aromas of blackberries, cassis, warm spices, violets and pencil shavings, framed by a deft touch of nicely integrated new oak, it's full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with terrific depth at the core, powdery structuring tannins and lively acids, concluding with a long, precise finish. Rich but vibrant, this 2019 reflects the new precision that Frédéric Faye has brought to Figeac; but while it's richer and more polished than the wines of yesteryear, the estate's identity hasn't been lost.
 
98 Suckling Punkte für den Chateau Figeac 2019 Saint EmilionJames Suckling über den Chateau Figeac 2019 Saint Emilion:
1 Dec, 2021 – This is a really beautiful red with crushed-berry, plum, bark, mushroom and earth character. It’s full and creamy-textured with lots of tannins, but they are integrated and polished and flow across the palate. So much depth and intensity, yet there’s underlying grace and class. Try after 2025.
 
99 Punkte vom Vinous-Team für den Chateau Figeac 2019 Saint EmilionAntonio Galloni (Vinous) bewertet den Chateau Figeac 2019 Saint Emilion:
The 2019 Figeac is without question one of the wines of the vintage. All the promise it showed as a young barrel sample, is all there in bottle, too. Estate Director Frédéric Faye crafted a towering, statuesque Figeac built on vertical energy and a feeling of vibrancy that never lets up. Deep layers of red/purplish fruit, cedar, tobacco, mint and dried flowers are framed by a super-classic expression of structure that keeps things in balance. There is a bit more Cabernet Franc in this year's blend, and that definitely comes through. Readers who can find the 2019 should not hesitate, as it is truly majestic.
 
98 Punkte von Jeb Dunnuck für den Chateau Figeac 2019 Saint EmilionJeb Dunnuck im April 2022:
The 2019 Château Figeac checks in as 36% Cabernet Franc, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 30% Merlot, and it's another brilliant wine from Frédéric Faye. This deep purple-hued effort offers a beautiful Pauillac-like bouquet of ripe black cherries, cassis, damp earth, leafy herbs, chocolate, and smoked tobacco. It has classic Figeac herbal, earthy goodness (no doubt due to its high percentage of Cabernet) and is medium to full-bodied on the palate, has perfect tannins and flawless balance, all making for a brilliant Saint-Emilion that brings richness and power paired with finesse and elegance. Give bottles 4-5 years, count yourself lucky, and enjoy over the following 30+

 
98 Punkte vom Vinous-Team für den Chateau Figeac 2019 Saint Emilion Und Neal Martin (Vinous) zum Chateau Figeac 2019 Saint Emilion:
The 2019 Figeac was bottled in mid-July. Deep in color, with a bouquet that is initially backward and reticent. It requires a few minutes to shake off the veil of oak from the élevage. As I observed last year, the Cabernet Franc is very expressive this year, contributing blackberry and graphite notes and lending a more Left Bank-style bouquet. The palate is very fresh from the first moment, and very well structured, delivering layers of black fruit struck through by a fine bead of acidity. The tannins are very fine, and that crucial saline element appears toward the persistent finish. This is overtly classic in style and will require cellaring to reveal its full potential. But what potential! Chapeau, Frédéric Faye and team Manoncourt.
 
95 Punkte vom Wine Spectator für den Chateau Figeac 2019 Saint EmilionFür den Wine Spectator verköstigte James Molesworth den Chateau Figeac 2019 Saint Emilion:
Large-scaled, capturing all the rich and flamboyant cassis, steeped plum and blackberry reduction notes that are hallmarks of the vintage, along with a broad swath of loam and warm gravel underneath as tobacco and alder accents fill in wherever possible. Muscular and toothy along the edges but rock-solid in build, with enough fruit to round into form eventually. Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2024 through 2040. 9,062 cases made.
 
100 Punkte vom Falstaff für den Chateau Figeac 2019 Saint EmilionDer Chateau Figeac 2019 Saint Emilion am Gaumen der Falstaff-Verköstiger:
Dunkles Rubingranat, violette Reflexe, zarter Wasserrand. Zarte Edelholznuancen, schwarze Waldbeeren, ein Hauch von Cassis und Lakritze, feine Tabaknuancen, Gewürze, Orangenzesten, noch etwas zurückhaltend. Komplex, süße Kirschen, gut eingebaute Tannine, mineralisch und anhaftend, eleganter Stil mit feinfruchtigem Abgang, salzig im Nachhall, zart nach Lakritze im Finale, ungemein harmonisch, sicheres Entwicklungspotenzial, allerdings ist noch Geduld gefragt.

Great minty coolness and focus for this vintage! So much vitality and drive! I love the elegant dryness of this wine, which has only a hint of the opulence of this vintage. Very long and energetic finish with wonderful, herbal and mineral freshness. Excellent potential. Drinkable now, but best from 2025. Château Quintus vertical tasting. SP.

A powerful, structured Figeac, offering loads of blackberry, blueberry, chocolate, walnut and mushroom with some tobacco. It’s full-bodied with layered, chewy tannins that are polished and beautiful. So impressive and solid. Better than the great 2010? Time will tell. Goes on for a long time. Try after 2026.
 
97+ Punkte vom Wine Advocate für den Chateau Figeac 2018 Saint EmilionLisa Perrotti Brown bewertet den Chateau Figeac 2018 Saint Emilion im April 2021 wie folgt:
The 2018 Figeac is composed of 37% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Cabernet Franc, with a 3.7 pH and 14% alcohol. Deep garnet-purple in color, it soars out of the glass with opening notes of freshly crushed red and black cherries, mulberries and ripe, juicy plums, followed by hints of violets, damp soil, cedar chest, crushed rocks and pencil shavings. The medium-bodied, elegantly styled palate features bags of freshness and exquisitely ripe, beautifully poised tannins to support the bright, energetic black and red fruit layers, finishing on a lingering fragrant earth note. This is absolutely recognizable as being cut from the same cloth as old-school Figeac, but all the recent vineyard and winemaking improvements have unveiled the beautifully ripe, intense, nuanced potential here. Bravo to managing director/winemaker Frédéric Faye and his team! Although there is a lot to love about this wine right now, give it 5-6 years for the oak to fully integrate and the underlying perfume suggestions to emerge, then enjoy over the next 20-25 years or more.
 
98 Punkte von Jeb Dunnuck für den Chateau Figeac 2018 Saint EmilionJeb Dunnuck im März  2021:
Reminiscent of the 2016 with its incredible purity and elegance, the 2018 Château Figeac offers a terrific perfume of crème de cassis, redcurrants, dried earth, tobacco, lead pencil, spring flowers, and exotic spice-driven nuances. Playing in the medium to full-bodied end of the spectrum, it's flawlessly balanced, has silky, polished tannins, and a stunning sense of purity. It doesn't have the sexiness of the 2015, but it's very much in the style of the 2018 vintage with its pure, elegant, haut couture-like style. And it doesn't show a hint of its 100% new oak élevage. Give bottles 4-5 years of bottle age and enjoy over the following 20-30 years. It's not the biggest or richest Saint- Emilion, yet the balance, finesse, and elegance are something to behold. I think it's going to check in behind the 2015 (and maybe the 2019) when all is said and done, but it's unquestionably one of the greatest Figeac in the past 20-30 years. The blend is 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, and the balance Cabernet Franc, raised all in new oak. Another big “Bravo” to the talented director, Frédéric Faye!

Der Petit Figeac ist eine kleine Rarität weil er in dem JG 2020 nur in sehr kleinen Mengen produziert wurde. Der Zweitwein von Chateau Figeac besteht aus Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon und Merlot, im Prinzip so wie auch der Grand Vin auf Figeac. Für den Petit Figeac werden aber auch die jüngeren Reben verwendet, meistens zeigen sich diese fruchtbetonter und vitaler. Auf Chateau Figeac wurde ja in den letzten Jahren sehr viel geändert inklusiver einer komplett neuen Kellerei, aber eben auch im Weinberg. Die Qualität des Petit Figeac ist wirklich stark angestiegen in den letzten Jahren, hier profitiert der "Kleine" von dem stetigen Streben der Besitzer nach dem besten und vor allem der höchsten Klassifizierung die ja in 2022 erreicht wurde. Man ist nun mit Chateau Pavie der einzige Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classe A, nachdem Cheval Blanc, Ausone und auch das Chateau Angelus sich haben nicht mehr klassifizieren lassen. Der Jahrgang 2020 führt beim Petit Figeac quasi zu einer Grand Vin Qualität und zeigt sich im Glas mit einer verführerischen Kirschfrucht, etwas Mokka und zarte rote Paprike gesellt sich hinzu, das wirklich angenehme feine Tannin läd schon zum früheren Geniessen ein. Hier gilt auch wieder die goldene Regel, in grossen Jahren kleine oder eben Zweitweine kaufen, erst Recht wenn Figeac auf dem Etikett steht.
