The 2000 Château Figeac is one of the strongest examples of the vintage I have tasted in quite some time. The wine remains youthful, but its promise is self-evident, as it delivers a refined aromatic constellation of black cherries, dark berries, cigar wrapper, a superb base of soil tones, a touch of youthful Figeac herb notes, smoky new oak and an exotic topnote of celery seed. On the palate the wine is deep, complex and full-bodied, with a superb core of fruit, lovely balance and grip, suave, buried tannins and a long, nascently complex and very, very promising finish. This is very elegant for an example of 2000 claret. (9/2020)

The 2000 Château Figeac is now fully mature and at point, yet has plenty of life ahead, showing almost no signs of bricking in color at the edge. It's an incredibly complex, nuanced example of Figeac that shines more for its complexity than power. Beautiful currants, green tobacco, cedar, and lead pencil aromatics give way to a medium-bodied Saint-Emilion with a wonderful core of sweet fruit, silky, polished tannins, terrific overall balance, and a great finish. Building beautifully with time in the glass, it's a complex, nuanced, gorgeous Figeac to enjoy any time over the coming two decades. As is common with this wine, it has a Left Bank vibe and I'd probably guess this was a top Saint-Julien in a blind tasting. (4/2021)

Spices, herbs, plums, and meat on the nose. Full and round, with soft tannins and a beautiful finish. Chocolate and fruit everywhere. (5/2012)
