Vinous – Neil Martin – 95-97/100
The 2021 Figeac was picked from September 21 until October 19 and
matured, as usual, in 100% new oak. It has a very pure, elegant bouquet,
the Cabernet Sauvignon imparting subtle pencil lead notes, blackberry and
briar, almost understated at first but gaining vigor with aeration. The
palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity and
just the right amount of sapidity. There is unerring symmetry about this
Figeac, which is extremely focused yet unconcerned about showing off.
There is lovely piquancy on the finish. Unequivocally one the finest Right
Bank wines in 2021. Frédéric Faye continues to guide Figeac to the
pinnacle of the appellation. (13.0% alcohol)
Robert Parker – The Wine Advocate – 94-97/100
One of the highlights of the vintage on the Right Bank, the 2021 Figeac is a blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Cabernet Franc and 29% Merlot, and the fruit of a harvest that lasted a full month, from September 21 to October 19, with each parcel picked at optimal maturity. Offering up aromas of blackberries, cassis, rose petals, violets, cigar wrapper and sweet soil tones, it’s medium to full-bodied, supple and seamless, its velvety attack segueing into a deep, layered core of beautifully vibrant fruit, concluding with a long, saline finish. The first vintage vinified in Figeac’s new winery, it’s a resounding success for administrator Frédéric Faye and his team.
