Château FIGEAC 1er grand cru classé 2019 Futures

The wines of Figeac display unparalleled naturalness, freshness and distinction. Without losing any of its finesse and balance, Figeac is currently working hard to reach the highest level of Angelus and Pavia in the future classification (2022?).

Its 2017 has been rated 20/20 by the Revue du Vin de France "The immense success of the en primeur interview is confirmed without a shadow of a doubt. The duel with Cheval-Blanc [also 20/20] continues...".

Bettane & Desseauve : 99/100 « Un corps satiné, fuselé et une profondeur parmi les plus accomplies du millésime. La finale saline est grandissime. C'est pur, long, séveux, cristalin, d'une fraîcheur intense et d'une longueur ultra racée. »
Revue du Vin de France : 98-99/100 « Excellent millésime pour ce terroir de graves profondes et d’argiles bleues influencé par le climat, sous influence de la Dordogne, à la limite de Pomerol. L’équilibre parfait du nez sur le fruit précis, frais du merlot est d’une grande finesse, ponctué des épices du cabernet-sauvignon sur une finale où les cabernets francs livrent leur fraîcheur. Toute l’harmonie de la trilogie de raisins saint-émilionnaise concourt à l’excellence de la construction aux tanins graphites, signature de Figeac. » 
Dupont (Le Point) : 
Galloni (Vinous) : 97-99/100 « A stunning vivid wine, the 2019 Figeac may very well turn out to be one of the wines of the vintage, when all is said and done. Cabernet Franc is 36%, a bit higher than the norm, which has been closer to 30%. The 100% new oak is barely perceptible. Rich and dramatic in the glass, the 2019 soars with magnificent intensity. Graphite, cured meats, smoke, licorice, menthol and spice develop with aeration, but the 2019 is dense and very primary today. It is a truly grand Grand Vin in the making. »
Martin (Vinous) : 97-99/100 « It is quintessential Figeac on the nose, that is to say that the enticing mélange of Merlot and Cabernet together creates more than a sum of their parts. It is exquisitely defined. The palate is medium-bodied. First impressions are of a Figeac that leans more to the Cabernet/Left Bank side of its personality, quite structured with black fruit dominating, saline and marine-influenced. A deeply impressive, intellectual Figeac this years, amongst the canon of greats that stretch back to the 1940s. »
