Chateau Figeac 2021

Saint Emilion
Topwein des Jahrgangs
Was für ein Traumwein! Von wegen 2021 schwieriger Jahrgang und so… Das ist eines der Jahrgangs-highlights, und zwar nicht nur des rechten Ufers. Sehen sie sich einmal die Bewertungen an. Figeac hatte schon immer einen sehr hohen Anteil an Cabernet Sauvignon und Cabernet Franc in der Cuvee, jedoch noch nie zuvor einen Blend von 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Cabernet Franc und lediglich 29% Merlot. Und wir sprechen vom rechten Ufer, nicht von einem Medoc-Wein. Wir waren drei Mal vor Ort, um den Wein zu verkosten. Das ist die Essenz von perfekt reifem Cabernet, ein Traum von einem Figeac und jede Sünde wert.

Weinwisser: "40 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 31 % Cabernet Franc, 29 % Merlot, pH 3.65, 13 Vol.-%, –10% Menge. Verführerisches Bouquet, reife Waldhimbeeren, betörendes Veilchenparfüm und rotes Johannisbeergelee. Im zweiten Ansatz Johannisbeerdrops und zarter Iris-Duft. Am energiegeladenen Gaumen seidige Textur, herrliche Extraktfülle, sehr präzise vinifiziert, verliert nie seinen Weg, engmaschiges, perfekt reifes Tanningerüst und perfekt geformter Körper. Im gebündelten Finale eine volle Ladung mit blauen Beeren, jetzt kommt die vibrierende Rasse dazu, tiefschürfende Terroirwürze, wird immer länger. Grandiose Leistung von Frédéric Faye und seinem Team."
Decanter: "One of my absolute favourite wines in 2021 with Figeac's star power clearly on show. Amazing aromatic complexity on the nose; dark chocolate with perfume from the Cabernet Franc - pink flowers, red cherry touches vanilla and cinnamon - such a seductive smell. Pure and focused - so smooth and sleek with a clear tang to the palate. Quite taut, so defined and pure. The minerality comes through the sweet strawberry and raspberry fruit giving that chalky, salty flavour and texture on the palate. Everything is precise and in the right place. You can tell this is ripe, the concentration is there in the fruit, alongside such bright freshness but also these fun and playful red fruit flavours with lively acidity. Classic Bordeaux style with vibrancy, clarity and harmony - you feel the St-Emilion terroir and the understated glamour. This is an epic wine, a brilliant Figeac and contender for wine of the Right Bank. 100% new oak."
Dunnuck: "Unquestionably one of the wines of the vintage on the Right Bank, the 2021 Château Figeac checks in as 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Cabernet Franc, and 29% Merlot, brought up all in new barrels. It's a gorgeous, medium to full-bodied, concentrated, and textured 2019 with remarkable purity in its darker cassis and fresh plum fruits as well as notes of tobacco, truffly earth, cedar pencil, and spice. While it's easy to compare this to wines from the Médoc given its high Cabernet content, it has beautiful Right Bank character and is a classic, balanced, incredibly impressive Figeac that will benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and cruise for over two decades. It reminds me slightly of the 2014."
Neal Martin: "The 2021 Figeac was picked from September 21 until October 19 and matured, as usual, in 100% new oak. It has a very pure, elegant bouquet, the Cabernet Sauvignon imparting subtle pencil lead notes, blackberry and briar, almost understated at first but gaining vigor with aeration. The palate is mediumbodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity an just the right amount of sapidity. There is unerring symmetry about this Figeac, which is xtremely focused yet unconcerned about showing off. There is lovely piquancy on the finish. Unequivocally one the finest Right Bank wines in 2021. Frédéric Faye continues to guide Figeac to the pinnacle of the appellation. (13.0% alcohol)"
Wine Cellar Insider: "Violets, roses, cigar wrapper, espresso, cherries, plums, blackberries and currants create the attention-seeking perfume. Lively and fresh, the wine is perfectly balanced between its elegant nature, vibrant red fruits, silky textures, length and purity. The fruit has a sweetness along with salinity that is impossible to miss. The wine is a slow build on your palate. So you do not notice it at first. But with an intake of air, the wine begins slowly expanding in the finish. This is a perfect example of a modern classic wine blending 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Cabernet Franc and 29% Merlot. 13% ABV, 3.65% pH. The harvest took place September 21 - October 19, making 2021 not only one of the longest harvests in the history of the estate, but also one of the latest vintages they have ever recorded. Both choices were the key to the vintages success here. Of equal importance, 2021 marks the debut vintage for the estate's new, state-of-the-art cellars. Drink from 2026-2055."
Wine Enthusiast: "95–97. Barrel Sample. The wine is fresh with a fine structure from the 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc in the blend. It is a structured wine, light while also showing ripe black currant fruits and an edge of spice. With its fine acidity at the end, this is an excellent reflection of the year."
Wine Advocate: "One of the highlights of the vintage on the Right Bank, the 2021 Figeac is a blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Cabernet Franc and 29% Merlot, and the fruit of a harvest that lasted a full month, from September 21 to October 19, with each parcel picked at optimal maturity. Offering up aromas of blackberries, cassis, rose petals, violets, cigar wrapper and sweet soil tones, it's medium to full-bodied, supple and seamless, its velvety attack segueing into a deep, layered core of beautifully vibrant fruit, concluding with a long, saline finish. The first vintage vinified in Figeac's new winery, it's a resounding success for administrator Frédéric Faye and his team."
Vinum: "Schon in der Nase besonders fruchtig und blumig; eleganter, präziser Auftakt, grosse Rasse, Spannkraft und Länge über fast schon pfeffrigem, herrlich stützenden und erfrischenden Tannin; superber Wein, einer der Hits des Jahres."
Falstaff: "Dunkles Rubingranat, violette Reflexe, zarte Randaufhellung. Feine Nuancen von dunklen Waldbeeren, zarte Gewürznoten, ein Hauch von Nougat und Herzkirschen. Saftig, elegant, frisch und ausgewogen, dezente Fruchtsüße, reife Tannine, finessenreich und bereits gut entwickelt, mineralisch, sehr präzise und mit guter Länge ausgestattet, salziger Nachhall, toller Begleiter bei Tisch."
Perroti-Brown: "The 2021 Figeac is a blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Cabernet Franc, and 29% Merlot, with the Merlot harvested from 21 September to 1 October. Deep garnet-purple colored, it slowly unfurls in the glass, releasing languid notions of redcurrants, black raspberries, and mulberries, followed by hints of iron ore, violets, star anise, and menthol with a hint of graphite. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegant with ripe, grainy Cabernet-led tannins, featuring great tension and lots of bright red fruit and mineral layers, finishing long and ferrous. pH 3.65."
Suckling: "A red with lots of dark-fruit, graphite and tar aromas and flavors. It’s medium-bodied and very integrated with firm, polished tannins and a long finish. Racy and compact. Silky texture."
Galloni: "The 2021 Figeac is a super-classy, elegant Saint-Émilion. Silky tannins and lifted, savory aromatics add to a total impression of finesse. There is more Cabernet Sauvignon than typically in this year's blend, which naturally brings added aromatic presence. The 2021 is not as explosive as recent vintages have been, but its class is evident. This is a strong showing from Figeac and the team led by Estate Manager Frédéric Faye."
Robinson: "40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Cabernet Franc, 29% Merlot. 38 hl/ha. 70% of production. First vintage made in the new cellar. Cask sample. Berry fruit with just a hint of oak. Sappy with plenty of freshness and drive. Velvety attack then a firm tannic structure all the way through. Just a hint of grainy tannin on the finish. Long. Typically Figeac in style. (JL)"
