2015 Petit Figeac



The Petit Figeac 2015 is an astonishing second wine fom a Bordeaux Chateau 'back at the top of its game'.

 

2015 saw a remarkable return to form for one of St Emilion’s great estates, Chateau Figeac. The grand vin was simply superb, generated huge scores across the board and was one of our biggest and fastest selling wines of the entire campaign. Also benefitting hugely from this upswing is the fantastic second wine, Petit Figeac, which offers a great insight into this superior estate.

 

Jancis Robinson liked it so much that she placed it within a point of what was one of the finest wines of the campaign, Figeac’s own first wine.

 

She’s not alone in praising Petit Figeac 2015:

The 2015 Petit-Figeac is quite deep and powerful, especially for a second wine. The richness and ripeness of the vintage comes through in the wine's racy, dark profile. Black cherry, plum, smoke and tobacco are all pushed forward in this succulent, juicy Saint-Émilion. My only quibble here is that the flavors are a bit roasted. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Petit Figeac is a blend of 32% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, representing around one-third of the production. It has a perfumed blackberry, raspberry coulis and boysenberry-scented bouquet - fruit forward and very pure. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, fresh in the mouth, dark berry fruit and a slight gravelly, almost Graves-Like note thanks to that Cabernet. Often overlooked, this is well worth seeking out. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2019-2030

This is very powerful with lots of dark chocolate and blueberry character. Full body, concentrated and chewy. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

This wine is aromatic, with fine acidity and dusty tannins that are ripe and almost approachable. It is a generous, open wine with plenty of bright fruits and blackberry flavors. The acidity is what lifts the wine at the end. Apr 2016, www.winespectator.com, Roger Voss

35% of the crop; they have to make a second wine because they have quite a lot of young vines. 32% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 48% Cabernet Sauvignon. Yield 41 hl/ha. Picked 21 September - 15 October (for very late Cabernet Franc)! 30% new oak and shorter élevage. Good drive and raciness on the nose. Real sinew and savour. Polished tannins but good Figeac character. A success! Superior ink. GV? 14%. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2019-2027

Unique among Right Bank reds in having such a high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon, this second wine is a triumph in 2015. Floral, balanced and grassy, with refreshing acidity, cassis and red berry fruit and stylish oak. Figeac is back at the top of its game. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2022-2030
