The 2015 Petit Figeac has a crisp, minty bouquet, more black fruit than red with a touch of honey in the background signifying the warmth of the summer. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, quite spicy in the mouth with touches of bay leaf and soy, firming up toward the finish with a touch of cracked black pepper on the aftertaste. It is very classic in style, a deuxième vin that belongs on the dinner table rather than being served on its own.

Château Figeac is an ancient Bordeaux vineyard, able to trace its winemaking credentials back to Roman times. The Manoncourt family took over this Right Bank estate in 1947 and although it took time, in recent years – under the watchful eye of Manager Frédéric Faye – they have pushed this Premier Grand Cru Classé Saint-Émilion into the fine wine world’s upper echelon. 2015 was one of the best vintages that this region has seen since 2005, and Figeac’s wines were exceptional, cementing their place in the pantheon of Bordeaux greats. As Wine Advocate suggests, this is not one to overlook.
