Château Figeac 2021 – Saint-Emilion 1er Grand Cru Classé

Château Figeac 2021 – Saint-Emilion 1er Grand Cru Classé

A lovely, elegant, precise, delicate nose that reveals gourmandize, a fine airiness in the approach, some fleshiness of the fruit and a nice ripeness. Fleshy/juicy cherry, pulpy/crunchy red berry and slightly blackcurrant notes are combined with fine nuances of bright blue plum/blackberry as well as a discreet roasted hint of fruit and subtle hints of sweet spice/sweet tobacco. The palate is fruity, elegant, nicely balanced and offers minerality, gourmandize, pulpiness, nice definition, fleshiness, airiness, fine uprightness, substance, nice acidity and complexity in the ripeness levels of the fruit. Nice bitterness, a very nice substance, a lot of finesse and elegance. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy/chunky blackberry, crisp/acidic cherry and more lightly fleshy/fresh red berries combined with touches of blueberry, tonka bean, crushed/crushed almonds, as well as hints of pulpy/fresh/juicy blue berries, star anise, a very discreet hint of serenity, fine hints of sweet spices, nutmeg and a very discreet hint of almost blood orange (in the background) and chocolate. A subtle hint of graphite and a nice sapidity/salinity in the background. A lot of purity in its fruit and minerality. An imperceptible hint of caramelised almond in the background. The tannins are pretty, elegant, sapid and mellow. A very nice harmony! Congratulations!
