"Tasted at the Château Figeac vertical at the property. The 2006 Figeac is a success for what was a modest Right Bank vintage. The Cabernet Sauvignon is most expressive on the nose at the moment, reserved but nicely defined with pencil lead and light ferrous scents emerging. The palate is medium-bodied with a dash of pepper on the entry. This is youthful but approachable, not long in the mouth, but "cool, calm and collected." This is a fine Figeac destined to give a couple of decade's worth of pleasure. Tasted June 2015."

"Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London and subsequently blind at Farr Vintners' tasting, the 2006 Château Figeac has an open-knit, meaty, Cabernet Franc-driven bouquet with hints of scorched earth and bell pepper infusing the black fruit, later cigar box and smoke. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, a little dryness in the mouth, certainly not a fruit-driven Figeac, although it is nicely balanced on the simple Cabernet-driven finish. Drink this over the next 5-6 years - not a bad Figeac, but it is surpassed by many other vintages in recent years. Tasted April 2016."

"This elegant, precocious, surprisingly soft, up-front-styled St.-Emilion possesses a dark ruby/purple color as well as sweet aromas of menthol, fruitcake, cherries, and black currants. Round and medium-bodied with silky tannins and a sensual, evolved, precocious style, it can be enjoyed over the next 10-14 years."
