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
An intense and complex nose with earth and black forest fruits followed by an opulent spice bouquet of clove & cinnamon follow through to velvety and dense finish that covers the wine like a silk blanket. A wine with considerable depth and richness that deserves to be enjoyed properly.

FOOD PAIRING
Grilled and roast lamb with garlic and rosemary.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
Following the 2009 vintage, 2010 does not disappoint at all and follows suit in terms of richness and opulence. Outstanding.
