37% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14?%?vol., 39?hl/ha. Dunkles Purpurgranat mit violetten Reflexen. Ein betörendes, opulentes Bouquet mit frischen Alpenheidelbeeren und reifen Waldhimbeeren. Im zweiten Ansatz schwarze Johannisbeerdrops und Lakritze sowie parfümierter Pfeifentabak. Am Gaumen mit cremiger Textur und eine royale Grösse zeigend, getragen von einer magischen Frische, was für eine Symphonie. Im gebündelten Finale katapultiert sich diese Delikatesse zu einem Feuerwerk aus Heidelbeeren, Brombeergelee und stützender Mineralik. Dieser St.-Émilion konnte mich an diesem Tag als einziger Wein völlig überzeugen und erhält dafür zurecht die Höchstwertung. Auf meine Frage, was das Besondere am 2018er sei, antwortet Frédéric Faye stolz lächelnd: «Harmonie!». Trinkreife: 2028-2058 Weinwisser

(The 2018 Figeac is composed of 37% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Cabernet Franc, harvested September 17 to October 12 with a 3.7 pH and 14% alcohol. Deep purple-black in color, it charges out of the gate with vivacious black and red cherries, cassis, warm plums and wild blueberries scents plus fragrant hints of violets, star anise, tilled soil and forest floor with wafts of Ceylon tea and chocolate box. Full-bodied and jam-packed with energetic, crunchy black and blue fruits, it has a rock-solid, firm, grainy frame and loads of bright, refreshing sparks lifting the dense layers on the very long, savory finish. Wow—the Cabernet really makes itself known this vintage, and it is good. The signature of this wine is so clear, so defined, that this is a Bordeaux wine without peers. In my view, this is the finest Figeac ever produced. Robert Parker

This is pretty gorgeous, with velvety texture that lets nearly exotic cassis, plum and blackberry fruit reduction flavors roll through. Has a beautiful bass line of warm earth and smoldering tobacco notes all while keeping its sensational mouthfeel. The encore on the finish makes you realize this is the serious gourmet stuff. One of the highlights of the vintage. Wine Spectrator

This shows wonderful precision and focus with dark-berry, tobacco, and blueberry character. Full-bodied, tight and vivid. Solid and structured. Really powerful for Figeac. The real new style here of Figeac that harkens back to the great wines of the 1950s and 1940s. This year, equal parts of merlot, cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc. James Suckling

The 2018 Figeac is simply magnificent. A regal, soaring wine with tremendous vertical lift and nuance, the 2018 is marvelously complete from the very first taste. All the elements fall into place effortlessly. Medium in body and refined, the 2018 is vibrant, with fine tannins and, frankly, quite a bit more freshness than I expected to see given the very dry, sunny summer. Rose petal, mint, lavender and spice add nuance to a core of red/purplish fruit. Harvest started on September 17 and finished on October 12. Yields were 39 hectoliters per hectare, just shy of the historical average of 42/32. While mildew pressure was an issue, it was the dry October winds and their dehydrating effect on the last Cabernets that impacted yields most. Like so many of his colleagues, Technical Director Frederic Faye and his team opted for gentler vinifications with no SO2 at crush, lower temperatures in fermentation and smaller pumpovers. The 2018 Figeac is brilliant. That's all there is to it. The blend is 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 26% Cabernet Franc. Tasted three times. Antonio Galloni
