James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com:

"The aromas in this are amazing, with blueberries, blackberries and fresh mushrooms. Black olives. So aromatic. Full-bodied, with super velvety tannins and lovely depth of ripe fruit. Balanced. Wild flavors on the finish of, meat, berries and forest fruits. Hints of decadence. 33% Cabernet Franc, 33% Merlot and 33% Cabernet Sauvignon. Best Figeac ever. Try after 2020."

Wine Spectator:

"Distinctive, with atypical (for St.-Emilion) force and drive to the black currant, roasted cedar and maduro tobacco flavors, which are supported by a dense, loam-tinged structure. Terrific roasted espresso, ganache and fig paste notes wait in reserve. Very muscular, but with the cut for balance. Best from 2017 through 2035."

Product Description:

"FIGEAC’s style has pedigree (...); it has aromatic brilliance and displays in dazzling manner the primacy of freshness and balance. It offers unquestionable distinction of constitution, revealing aristocratic tannins and flesh which fills out as the wine opens (...) FIGEAC doesn’t jump out of the glass -you need to go and find it. It is a wine for aesthetes, which develops over time. Never demonstrative in its youth, it becomes more and more complex with age -then the superlatives start to abound. Enhanced by its Cabernet backbone, which brings it great style, it is like a long-distance runner who, after ten years or so, emerges, glancing back smilingly on those powerful sprinters that have suffered premature muscle pulls.” -Denis Hervier – Gault & Millau, 2013
