(2004 Vintage) At the George V hotel on November 26th, a cocktail was offered for the launch of LES VINS DE MA VIE, a book written by the 1998 World’s Best Sommelier silver medallist and manager of “Le Cinq”, Eric Beaumard. The book is a glowing tribute in which Château-Figeac features prominently. A present for wine enthusiasts.
Antonio Galloni"The 2014 Figeac is shaping up to be a real jewel of a wine. Powerful and structured, with plenty of tannic spine, the 2014 won't start hitting its stride for at least a few years. Even today, though, it is impressive for its energy and overall intensity. Plum, smoke, spice, graphite and leather build into the huge, expressive finish. Figeac is one of the stars of the vintage. There is real density and gravitas here, not to mention considerable personality."
James Suckling"A beautiful Figeac with stones, oyster shells, chalk and fruits. Full-bodied and compacted with ultra-fine tannins. This is compressed and compacted with a wonderful style. The 32% cabernet sauvignon should give a unique structure here. More structured than the 2012."
Wine Enthusiast" The Cabernet Sauvignon in this wine always gives it a distinctive, smoky profile. It also offers juicy acidity and black currant flavors that lie over a fine, dusty layer of tannins. The wine is so elegant and poised, with both structure and freshness. "
