2009 Figeac

Colour: Red
Vintage: 2009
Appellation: St Emilion
97 (JS)
Figeac is a truly extraordinary Bordeaux property for so many reasons. Located to the west of St Emilion - it is actually closer to Libourne than to the hilltop town which gives the appellation its name - it is one of the few large-scale, high quality properties in the area which remains in family ownership. Figeac is also planted unlike any other estate in the area with its (loose) proportions of a third each of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. These latter vines are perfectly suited to the patches of gravel soils which are spread across the property and since the estate moved to micro-vinification, allowing true plot-by-plot picking and production, the complexity of the terroir has been exhibited more clearly than ever before. The de Manoncourts have invested heavily and General Manager Frederic Faye continues to impress us with his skill, good humour and above all, his capacity to get the very best out of this unique piece of St Emilion terroir.

Tasting Notes and Scores

94

Wine Advocate

The medium garnet colored 2009 Figeac features a very pretty perfume of rose hip tea, lilacs and cinnamon stick over a core of red and black currant preserves plus hints of dried herbs and sweaty saddles. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers bags of savory fruit layers with plenty of floral sparks, framed by rounded tannins, finishing on a earthy note.Lisa Perrotti-Brown, March 2019

Neal Martin

The 2009 Figeac has an attractive bouquet with black cherries, boysenberry jam, hints of fig and crushed stone, the Cabernet component less expressive than other vintages (as has always been the case.) The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin. It seems to have lost a bit of its puppy fat compared to two or three years ago, but retains a silky smooth texture and very composed and quite persistent finish. Very classy. Tasted at BI Wines & Spirits' annual Ten Year On tasting. - vinous.com, March 2019

James Suckling

Even in this super-ripe vintage Figeac retains its usual red bell pepper aroma (from the cabernet sauvignon grape) and that adds a light touch to the opulent fruit cake and spice character. The full fine tannins beautifully support the rich palate and make the finish very long and plush. A great 2009! Drink or hold.
