Château Figeac, Grand Cru Classé, St Emilion 1983
Bottle Size: 75cl
Region: France: Bordeaux Right Bank
Grape Variety: Bordeaux Blend Red
The 1983 Figeac has a light brick rim. It has a thin rustic nose, touches of terracotta and leather infusing the red berry fruit, loose-knit but charming. The palate still has an almost Left Bank personality; the Cabernet components are very expressive. Grainy tannins, more minty than five years ago when I last tasted this vintage, with some herbal notes emerging towards the finish. It’s a bit rough hewn for a Figeac, but should continue to drink well for several years. Tasted at the Berlin vertical. 89 Points. Tasted October 2021. Neal Martin. Vinous.
