Vintage 2015

The Cabernets have exceptional depth of aroma and flavour, an array of floral scents from the Cabernet Franc complementing the Cabernet Sauvignon’s fresh fruit and spice bouquet. A multiplicity of sensations appear on tasting, all enfolded in juicy Merlot which gives a full and creamy texture to the mid-palate. The tannic structure provides support for a long, lingering finish, entirely consistent with the Château-Figeac style.

Vintage report

From the outset, 2015 was always going to be one of Château-Figeac’s great successes, a generally dry year, hot to begin with, then cool as the grapes ripened. The grapes were of very high quality across all three varieties and picking took place over three weeks in accordance with the team’s assessments. The crop was perfectly homogeneous, expressing all the refinement that comes from Château-Figeac’s unique terroir and the complexity that results from its varietal mix.

With epithets like “unforgettable”, “sublime” or “outstanding”, some wines define our tastes in the same way as certain dates overturn our lives…
Like members of the same family, necessarily different yet necessarily close, each vintage of Château-Figeac is the reflection of a year which tells a whole story… It is one of the great riches of our wines, closely linked to the irreplaceable terroir and the choices made by the winemaker.
In our wine cabinet, we recount a selection of vintages, each with its own story. If you are curious about another vintage, please ask us…
