2016 Petit Figeac, St-Emilion

SKU #1299409 93-95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark The density of this wine is impressive. Powered by its velvety tannins and ample acidity, ripe black fruits thrust forward to offer both richness and intensity. The crisp, black currant flavor on the finish lifts the whole wine. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2016 Petit Figeac is a blend of 41% Cabernet Franc, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 23% Merlot that spent 12-15 months in 30% new French oak. It has a real Figeac bouquet of blackcurrants, truffle, flowers, and forest floor. Silky and medium to full-bodied, this brilliant second wine should be snatched up by readers. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Very cabernet on the nose with blackcurrants, walnuts and fresh herbs. Hints of dried earth. Medium to full body and firm, juicy tannins. Solid. Second wine of Figeac. A blend of 41 per cent cabernet franc, 36 per cent cabernet sauvignon and 23 per cent merlot. Try after 2022. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This has a fun core of blackberry and black currant fruit, picking up light spearmint and anise notes along the way. Twinge of apple wood on the finish. (JM) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

90-92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Petit-Figeac is dark, supple and inviting, with lovely midpalate depth and creaminess. It is exactly what a second wine should be: an introduction to the house style. In 2016, Petit-Figeac has more Cabernet Franc than is often the case, and this, along with the personality of the vintage, gives the wine vibrancy, freshness and energy. Very nicely done. Tasted two times. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

Crafted to be a stylistic introduction to Figeac itself, Petit Figeac is a micro-cuvée coming from some of Château Figeac’s best parcels. This exceptional wine encapsulates the unique style of Figeac’s Cabernet, combined with a touch of Merlot, ensuring a silky texture thanks to a very gentle barrel aging in French oak. The 2016 may be their best effort to date.
