The 2019 Figeac has turned out brilliantly. Wafting from the glass with aromas of blackberries, cassis, warm spices, violets and pencil shavings, framed by a deft touch of nicely integrated new oak, it’sfull-bodied, deep and concentrated, with terrific depth at the core, powdery structuring tannins and lively acids, concluding with a long, precise finish. Rich but vibrant, this 2019 reflects the new precision that Fr?d?ric Faye has brought to Figeac; but while it’sricher and more polished than the wines of yesteryear, the estate’s identity hasn’t been lost.

This is a really beautiful red with crushed-berry, plum, bark, mushroom and earth character. it’sfull and creamy-textured with lots of tannins, but they are integrated and polished and flow across the palate. So much depth and intensity, yet there?s underlying grace and class. Try after 2025.
