"96 out of 100 ... The 2014 Figeac is shaping up to be a real jewel of a wine. Powerful and structured, with plenty of tannic spine, the 2014 won't start hitting its stride for at least a few years. Even today, though, it is impressive for its energy and overall intensity. Plum, smoke, spice, graphite and leather build into the huge, expressive finish. Figeac is one of the stars of the vintage. There is real density and gravitas here, not to mention considerable personality." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"96 out of 100 ... The aromas of blackcurrants and fresh forest floor are evocative. Oyster shells and stones. Turns to blackcurrants. Medium to full body and firm and silky tannins that are polished and coat your mouth. The palate is ever dense and concentrated. Needs four to five years to open but already a beautiful red." - James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com

"95 out of 100 ... The 2014 Figeac has a classic Saint-Émilion bouquet with pure raspberry and crushed strawberry scents, wet stone and smoke, wonderfully defined and vibrant. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, poised and focused, good backbone with a linear and precise finish that suggests it will require several years in bottle. It is predestined to be overshadowed by the subsequent 2015 and 2016, but you would be foolish to ignore this gem." - Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"95 out of 100 ... Here is a 2014 that entices with its aromatic subtlety for a core of spicy black fruit. The attack is lively and although the palate has a moderately dense structure to it, the tannins are still a bit firm at this stage. There is a hint of bell pepper and tobacco on the finish that amplify an impression of freshness on the long, airy finish. This is a lovely wine possessing real terroir expression." - Johan Castaing, Decanter.com
