Scores and tasting notes
Tasted at the Château Figeac vertical at the property. I have never really got on with the 1999 Figeac and with 16 years now on the clock, it is vindicating my initial tepid reaction to this wine. Served against the 2000 and 2001, it is clear that the nose is disjointed, a bit "scruffy." This of a young urchin without his shirt tucked in. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly hard tannin and without the flesh to counterbalance it. It's a "pass" from me, I'm afraid. Go for the 1998 or the 2001. Tasted June 2015.
