Figeac 2003

Chateau Figeac

16

A luscious, sensual effort, the dark plum-colored 2003 exhibits a big, rich nose of dried herbs, high quality cigar tobacco, fruit cake, red currants, and sweet licorice. It is medium-bodied, soft, round, and seductive, lacking only depth and persistence. Drink it over the next 10-12 years. *** While revealing more character than it did last year, this remains a medium-weight, elegant, sensual, fragrant, surprisingly evolved St.-Emilion. It offers a dark plum/garnet color along with a bouquet of fruitcake, currants, licorice, dried herbs, and tobacco smoke. Sweet, round, and medium-bodied, it is a charming, well-balanced red to enjoy over the next 12-14 years.

Chateau Figeac

Chateau Figeac is a highly rated wine production estate based in the Saint Emilion region of Bordeaux, France. The primary wine Chateau Figeac is classified as Premier Grand Cru Classe (B) as per the official classification of Saint Emilion wine.

Although Chateau Figeac is a prominent right bank wine, many describe it as having the characteristics of fine wines from the Medoc and Graves, most likely due to the grape selection. Chateau Figeac contains around 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc and 30% Merlot; whereas most Saint Emilion wines have a higher percentage of Merlot, this elite fine wine is far more balanced.

Chateau Figeac is the largest winery in Saint Emilion, spanning around 40 hectares of pure vineyards, and the annual production of its primary wine is around 10,000 cases. The estate also has a second wine in production since 1945 labeled La Grange Nueve de Figeac.
