ABOUT THE WINE
An ancient vineyard, named after its Gallo-Roman owners, the Figeacus family, the Figeac estate has been continually occupied and farmed for at least two thousand years. The terroir is very special indeed – a large part of the original 200-hectare estate was sold off during the 18th Century to the Ducasse family to become Chateau Cheval Blanc, and other sections contribute to some of the finest estates in the appellation. The 42-hectare vineyard that remains contains vines over 100 years of age, with an unusually high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon planted.

TASTING NOTES
A refined, structured wine; fruitcake and rich plum aromas lead to a blackberry laden palate, with coffee and fine-grained tannins on the finish.

FOOD PAIRING
Grilled and roast lamb with garlic and rosemary.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
A somewhat backwards vintage which will probably be best from 2022 onwards.
