Tasted at the Chateau Figeac vertical at the property. The 1982 Figeac appears to have dipped in form over the last few years and certainly here, compared directly against the 1989 and 1990, it does not quite offer the same fruit intensity or joie-de-vivre. It feels more diffuse on the nose, perhaps more herbaceous, a facet that I cannot remember on older bottles of 1982 that I tasted. The palate is medium-bodied, atypically austere for a 1982, but with impressive length. It is like a Saint Emilion that has forgotten how to have fun in some ways. It is better than the bottle encountered in 2013, yet given the choice, I would pick the 1990 over the 1982. Tasted June 2015. Aug 2016, www.robertparker.com
