Château Figeac 2012

Würde es so etwas wie einen androgynen Wein geben, so wäre das Château Figeac. Die einzigartige Rebzusammensetzung führt zu einem sehr maskulinen Saint-Emilion, den man nicht selten ganz woanders verorten würde.

The Wine Advocate

„Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux tasting. The 2012 Figeac put in a marvelous showing under strict blind conditions and it has clearly blossomed in bottle. It has an immediately engaging bouquet with vivid blackberry and raspberry fruit, wonderful mineralité and fine delineation. This is very composed, with a touch of graphite that almost takes you towards Pauillac rather than Saint Emilion. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, well-judged acidity, harmonious and lively with commendable precision towards the finish. This is a sophisticated and well-crafted Figeac that appears to be on an upward trajectory.“

Neal Martin 93 Punkte (Jan. 2016)

 

„This is a very strong effort from this great terroir. They finally seem to be making stricter selections and picking slightly riper fruit, thereby avoiding the vegetal underripe tones of the past as well as dilution from a lack of any selection. The 2012 Figeac (performing much better from bottle) has a dense ruby/purple color and a beautiful nose of graphite, blackcurrants, and spice box, followed by a medium-bodied, elegant yet still concentrated and authoritative style of wine. This is a beauty, and the great terroir that has existed for centuries comes through beautifully. Give it 3-4 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 20 years.“

Robert Parker 91+ Punkte (Apr. 2015)

 

„The dark ruby/garnet/plum-colored 2012 Figeac is somewhat angular (no doubt because the Cabernet Sauvignon was not as ripe as it could have been), but it possesses an attractive, cedary, underbrush, Christmas fruitcake, black cherry and black currant-scented nose. Elegant and medium-weight with good purity as well as a slightly narrow finish, it is a very good to excellent Figeac that should drink well for 12-15 years. Several months ago the big news in Bordeaux was that Madame Manoncourt, the incredibly charming, vibrant, 80-year-old owner of Figeac, decided a make-over was necessary for this estate to regain its proper place in the market as well as elevate its quality, which has been mixed since their last great vintages of 1964 and 1970. Michel Rolland was brought in as the consultant, although he only did the assemblage (blending) for the 2012. He will have full control over the 2013.“

Decanter Magazine

"Smoky blackcurrant nose and palate. Already quite expressive. Mid-palate more supple than usual. Tannins firm and grainy on the finish. 17/20pts ( 90/100pts) Drink: 2020 - 2032"

Jeff Leve

"From a blend of blend of 40% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a different style for Figeac. Much of the credit goes to the bringing in Michel Rolland and Valmy Nicolas from Chateau La Conseillante in Pomerol. This is the first vintage where Michel Rolland was involved in the blending. Notes of truffle, earth, coffee bean, licorice and spicy berry notes opened to a silky, round, supple textured, elegant wine, filled with ripe, sweet, plums and black raspberries. 92-94 Pts"

Jean-Marc Quarin

"Ce millésime voit Figeac basculer franchement vers un monde meilleur, avec plus de maturité, plus de précision et juste une touche de bois qui dépasse un peu. Couleur vive, pourpre et belle. Nez intense, fruité et éclatant sous le toasté. Dés l'entrée en bouche le vin offre un très beau toucher. Il monte au milieu avec beaucoup de goût avant de fondre en finale, très parfumé, noble dans sa texture et long."

16,75/20 oder 93 Punkte (Okt. 2015)

 

"Couleur sombre de bonne intensité. Nez fruité et vif. Soyeux à l'attaque, fruité au développement, élancé, parfumé, ce vin évolue suave et savoureux sur un corps normal, une bonne longueur et des tanins fins. Ce cru redresse la tête dans un millésime difficile à élaborer. Tant mieux !"

Revue du Vin de France

"Les 40 hectares ont été vendangés du 20 septembre au 13 octobre. "Nous sommes contents des merlots, nous avons de superbes cabernet-sauvignon, mais ce n'est pas une année à cabernet franc", analyse Frédéric Faye, le directeur. L'assemblage 2012 est donc unique avec 40% de cabernet-sauvignon, 40% de merlot et 20% de cabernet franc. Nez fruité, lardé, avec une pointe de cassis. Bouche délicate, crémeuse, aux tanins très doux, tendres môme. Structure de qualité, saveurs du fruit un peu lavées, mais belle longueur graphite. À signaler: l'arrivé programmée d'un troisième vin, Le Petit Figeac."

René Gabriel's BDX Total

"Tiefes Purpur, satt in der Mitte, Granatschimmer am Rand. Eigenwilliges, schwer anzugehendes Bouquet, Kräuter, Rauch, ein Hauch Geraniol in der rundum blaubeerigen Frucht. Im Gaumen kommt dann eine gewisse Grösse und Länge zum Tragen, feinste Tannine, veloursartiger Fluss, feinsandiges Finale. Ist auf gutem Weg. Vielleicht der letzte Figeac im alten Stil. Denn ab jetzt kommt Michel Rolland als neuer Berater durch die alte Kellertüre!"

Bettane & Desseauve

"Aucun maquillage de bois, nez plutôt frais, corps moyen, excellente franchise aromatique, tannin sans aspérité, montre les limites du millésime mais plutôt intelligemment élaboré et doté d’un tannin racé."

VINOUS

"The 2012 Figeac is super-expressive. Dense and fleshy in the glass - yet with gorgeous aromatic lift - the 2012 is impeccable in its overall balance. Dark red plum, cherry pit, cloves, leather, sage and licorice are all laced into the inviting finish. Within the context of the year, the Figeac has a fair amount of structure, so it is best cellared for at least a few years. There is a lot to like here. Michel Rolland blended the 2012 and took over the consulting at Figeac in full beginning with the 2013 harvest."

Falstaff

"Like the nose here, a touch of creme patissiere, some pleasantly worked oak . On the attack, the fresh acidity comes in the form of attractive gooseberry, redcurrant twist, lovely astringency on the tannins, this is young, actually feels like an en primeur sample, feels like this has life ahead of it. Perky, lively, plenty of char acter. This really underlines how many of these samples are correct, good wines, but without zing. Here we have zing. 94 - 95. 18.25 - 18.5. Highly recommended to Outstanding. Drink 2020 - 2038."
