2015 Petit Figeac, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1263950 92-93 points James Suckling

 This is very powerful with lots of dark chocolate and blueberry character. Full body, concentrated and chewy. 48% cabernet sauvignon, 32% merlot and 20% merlot.  (4/2016)

91-93 points Wine Enthusiast

 This wine is aromatic, with fine acidity and dusty tannins that are ripe and almost approachable. It is a generous, open wine with plenty of bright fruits and blackberry flavors. The acidity is what lifts the wine at the end.

89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Petit Figeac is a blend of 32% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, representing around one-third of the production. It has a perfumed blackberry, raspberry coulis and boysenberry-scented bouquet - fruit forward and very pure. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, fresh in the mouth, dark berry fruit and a slight gravelly, almost Graves-Like note thanks to that Cabernet. Often overlooked, this is well worth seeking out. (NM)  (4/2016)

Jancis Robinson

 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.  (4/2016)

Petit Figeac is definitely a wine for those who appreciate a balanced wine that although soft it does deliver a complex and well integrated experience. I appreciated that very much.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
