The superlative finesse and silkiness of Figeac's tannins in the 2008 vintage, which was so unfairly rated 81/100 by Robert Parker (nobody's perfect!).

    2018 vintage rated 94/100 by Neal Martin "This has very fine definition. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, superb density and very fresh. A vibrant, minty finish lingers in the mouth. It is very backward of course, but there is such convincing energy locked in this wine. Great potential". (Feb. 2020)

    2018 vintage rated 97/100 by Antonio Galloni "The 2017 Figeac is outrageously beautiful. Rich, deep and ample, the 2017 soars out of the glass with vertical intensity and explosive power. The flavors are just pulsing with energy. [...] The 2017 is a real "wow" wine; don't miss it". (March 2020)

    2018 vintage rated 100/100 in En Magnum "Ce qui est certain, c'est que 2018 fera date. C'est l'un des très grands vins du millésime et le sommet absolu de la Rive droite". (Avr. 2020)

    2014 vintage rated 94+/100 in La Revue du Vin de France "Remarquable finesse de grain en bouche, dans un corps svelte, peut-être un peu chiche mais mûr, étiré et distingué, sui generis en tout cas. [...] Le vin prend de plus en plus d'envergure à l'aération". (Nov. 2020)
