Jean-Marc Quarin 92
Beau rouge sombre, intense et vif. Nez fin, fruite et pur. Delicat en entree de bouche, savoureux au milieu, le vin caresse le palais, agreable et toujours aussi raffine au toucher. Corps et longueur moyens. Deguste en cours d’elevage.
Anticipated maturity: 2029-2042
Robert Parker 94-97
One of the highlights of the vintage on the Right Bank, the 2021 Figeac is a blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Cabernet Franc and 29% Merlot, and the fruit of a harvest that lasted a full month, from September 21 to October 19, with each parcel picked at optimal maturity. Offering up aromas of blackberries, cassis, rose petals, violets, cigar wrapper and sweet soil tones, it’s medium to full-bodied, supple and seamless, its velvety attack segueing into a deep, layered core of beautifully vibrant fruit, concluding with a long, saline finish. The first vintage vinified in Figeac’s new winery, it’s a resounding success for administrator Frederic Faye and his team.
