Château Figeac 1996 - Saint-Emilion
1 st grand cru Ranked B from St-Emilion
84 Parker Points (Not enough considering the actual quality of the wine)
Château Figeac owes its great success to several elements. It benefits from a gravelly terroir where the other Saint Emilion wines are found on clay-limestone soils.
The dominant Cabernet grape variety is therefore adapted to produce powerful and structured wines in the style of Medoc wines more than in the Saint-Emilion style.
Another peculiarity, the aging is systematically 100% in new barrels. Ensuring a structure and an important aging potential.
Finally, a very precise vinification using avant-garde techniques has enabled Figeac to ensure great consistency in the quality of its productions.
By its regularity, its aging potential and its unique style, Figeac is one of the Bordeaux wines most sought after by wine lovers.
Figeac 1996 Tasting Notes:
Its dress shows a good evolution going on mahogany tones. The Figeac 1996 on the nose reveals admirable elegance and complexity even if it requires aeration to be able to express itself. On the palate, it is delicate, the tannins are melted, it surprises with intense notes of red fruits, a beautiful freshness as well as a length in the mouth long and delicate.
