"Tasted in Bordeaux from an ex-château bottle, the 2011 Figeac has a healthy deep garnet hue. The nose is quite vibrant and well defined with blackberry, briary and a touch of graphite, though not as much as I remember showing out of barrel. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, crisp in the mouth with a fine line of acidity. This actually surpasses my expectations. It has a natural sensibility, offering attractive blackberry and cranberry fruit, a sprig of mint, with a breezy, unpretentious finish that suits this down to the ground. You could almost broach this now, unusual for Figeac,, but suffice to say it will offer a decade's worth of drinking pleasure, possibly more. Tasted July 2016."

"This lighter-bodied St.-Emilion exhibits an attractive dark plum/ruby color, no herbaceousness and an interesting bouquet of forest floor, black cherries and spice. A finesse-styled 2011 with good purity and no defects except the vintage’s lack of flesh, concentration and depth. Nevertheless, this is a good effort that should drink well in 2-3 years and last for 10-12."
