Find Chateau Figeac prices and retail availability.

Original Tasting and Review:

By way of background: Chateau Figeac Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Bordeaux, France, is an almost equal combination of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot, an unusual combination indeed for the area - given the high proportion of cabernet sauvignon. The 2007 vintage is finished 100% in new oak barrels.

In the glass: Chateau Figeac shows as medium red in the glass.

On the nose: Poured with a brief decant and swirled vigorously, this Bordeaux shows a classic old world nose.

On the palate: There is an even mid palate, with a lightly sour cherry finish.

In summary: Overall, rates two stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.
