Wine Advocate: The 2015 Petit Figeac is a blend of 32% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, representing around one-third of the production. It has a perfumed blackberry, raspberry coulis and boysenberry-scented bouquet - fruit forward and very pure. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, fresh in the mouth, dark berry fruit and a slight gravelly, almost Graves-Like note thanks to that Cabernet. Often overlooked, this is well worth seeking out. 89 - 91 Points

Ratings
Jancis Robinson: 35% of the crop; they have to make a second wine because they have quite a lot of young vines. 32% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 48% Cabernet Sauvignon. Yield 41 hl/ha. Picked 21 September - 15 October (for very late Cabernet Franc)! 30% new oak and shorter élevage. Good drive and raciness on the nose. Real sinew and savour. Polished tannins but good Figeac character. A success! Superior ink. GV? 14% Drink 2019-2027 17 Points
Awards
James Suckling: This is very powerful with lots of dark chocolate and blueberry character. Full body, concentrated and chewy. 48% cabernet sauvignon, 32% merlot and 20% merlot. 92 - 93 Points
Other Notes
Château Figeac is one of the leading St. Emilion estates and its wine, with its high Cabernet content, has often been described as the most Médoc-like in St-Emilion. Since 2010 Figeac has been managed by Comte Eric d’Aramon and his wife Laure. It is located in the north-west of the appellation with its vineyards adjoining those of Cheval Blanc. Its 40 hectares of vineyards (Cabernet Sauvignon 35%, Merlot 30%, Cabernet Franc 35%) lie on a deep, Médoc-like gravel topsoil ('Graves') over a flinty, iron-rich subsoil.
