flagBordeaux / France

Tasted at the Chateau Figeac vertical at the property. Though this Saint Emilion icon hit a purple patch during the 1960s, the 1962 Chateau Figeac is a wine that only could have been. By appearance alone, it looks much more mature than either the 1966 or 1961, while the aromatics have been denuded by the passing years: touches of chlorine and dusty black fruit. The palate is nicely balanced, but comes across as very straightforward, a pleasant old Bordeaux, but failing to reach the stellar heights of the 1964 or 1966. Given that this bottle came directly from the chateau cellar, I would be cautious broaching bottles without guaranteed provenance. Tasted June 2015. Aug 2016, www.robertparker.com
