Tasting Notes

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.

 Neal Martin, -, February 2018

Composed of 32% Merlot, 48% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Petit Figeac reveals notes of warm cherries, red currant jelly, aniseed and forest floor with touches of wild blueberries and blackberries. Medium-bodied, very finely crafted, elegant and refreshing, it fills the mouth with open-knit red and black fruits, finishing with a velvety texture paving the way.

Score: 91Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate, February 2018

The 2015 Petit-Figeac has come together nicely since I last tasted it. Fruity, forward and supple, it is tasty second wine meant to be enjoyed in its youth. The slightly roasted character I saw en primeur is less evident today.

Score: 89Antonio Galloni,, February 2018

35% of the crop; they have to make a second wine because they have quite a lot of young vines. 32% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 48% Cabernet Sauvignon. Yield 41 hl/ha. Picked 21 September - 15 October (for very late Cabernet Franc)! 30% new oak and shorter élevage.
Good drive and raciness on the nose. Real sinew and savour. Polished tannins but good Figeac character. A success! Superior ink. GV?
