Product Description

The 2004 Figeac is well into its maturity yet still drinking well with typical notes of cassis, blackberry with plenty of freshness and complexity.

France Flag Wine Bordeaux Red Blend

Tasting Notes

Robert Parker 90

Tasted at the property, the 2004 Figeac has a very dark color for the vintage (so much so, if blind I might not guess it as a Bordeaux!). The nose is tightly wound with dense black fruit. It conveys the feeling of being a little "pushed," trying to transcend the limitations of the vintage and forsaking elegance and finesse. It feels a little monochromatic. The palate is better: quite weighty in the mouth with blackberry, raspberry coulis and a splash of soy, segueing into more tobacco-like notes towards the finish that offers plenty of freshness. This is a stout and sturdy Figeac, quite complex with an almost English ale-like sweetness noted on the finish. Two beverages for the price of one! Tasted June 2016. [Neal Martin, 28/09/2017]

Anticipated maturity: 2018-2030

Vinous 88

Deep ruby-red. Plum, mocha, chocolate, licorice, graphite and violet on the nose, plus a whiff of baked fruits. Suave and dry, with good energy to the bitter cherry, menthol and underbrush flavors. Very much a cabernet-dominated style. Finishes juicy and youthfully clenched, with firm, slightly dry tannins. [Stephen Tanzer, 05/01/2007]
