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.

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.

 
98 Sucklingpunkte für denJames Suckling bewertet den Chateau Figeac 2018 Saint Emilion im Januar 2021 wie folgt:

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!

Chateau Figeac 2020 Saint Emilion
97-98
96-98
96-98+ Punkte vom Wine Advocate für den The 2020 Figeac is a blend of 37% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Franc and 31% Cabernet Sauvignon, weighing in with an alcohol of 13.9% and a pH of 3.7. Opaque purple-black colored, it bursts from the glass with a beautifully vibrant initial wave of pure, pristine black fruits: fresh black cherries, juicy black plums and ripe blackcurrants. With swirling, a whole array of floral and spice notes is unleashed: lavender, ground cloves, cumin seed, cardamom and rose oil. The medium-bodied palate is surprisingly graceful for the intensity of aromas, featuring ethereal, perfumed black berry notes, framed by a seamless line of freshness and ripe, grainy tannins, finishing on a lingering fragrant earth note. Far more cerebral and quietly introspective than it is hedonic, this could only be Figeac.
97-98 Suckling-Punkte für den Chateau Figeac 2020
James Suckling schreibt zum Chateau Figeac 2020 Saint Emilion Folgendes:

This is a really sophisticated young wine with tobacco, crushed stone, currants and dark chocolate on the nose, following through to a medium to full body with intense yet linear tannins and a spicy, fresh finish. Some cloves and black pepper. Graphite at the end. Very long. 37% merlot, 32% cabernet franc and 31% cabernet sauvignon.

 
96-98 Punkte vom Vinous-Team für den Chateau Figeac 2020
Das meint die Vinous-Mannschaft um Antonio Galloni zum Chateau Figeac:

The 2020 Figeac was picked from September 4 to October 1 and underwent vinification free of SO2. Deep purple in color, it is initially backward and sultry on the nose, necessitating 60 minutes before it really opens. It then reveals intense scents of cranberry, raspberry and touches of cassis intermingling with white pepper. Given that the Cabernets comprise 63% of the blend, this has a typical Left Bank personality but with Right Bank precocity. The palate conveys a sense of vibrancy and vigor on the entry, a dash of black pepper and allspice mingling with the mélange of red and black fruit. The tannins are satin-like in texture, and there’s dark berry fruit and hints of pencil lead and black truffle shavings toward the Pomerol-like finish. This is a magnificent Figeac from head winemaker Frédéric Faye and his team. This sample really came into its own 2–3 hours after opening.

97 Punkte vom Wine Advocate für den Chateau Figeac 2019 Saint EmilionWilliam Kelley im April 2022:

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. (2030 – 2065)
