René Gabriel 20 Points: “43 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 28 % Cabernet Franc, 29 % Merlot. 41 hl/ha. Undurchdringliche Farbe Violett mit fast schwarzen Reflexen. Unglaublich würziges, schier tintiges Bouquet, Nelkenköpfe, Heidelbeeren, Lakritze. Im Gaumen dicht, fleischig, eine sehr ausgeglichene Adstringenz liefernd, präzise ausgerichtet, frisch, floral und schwarzbeerig. Extrem nachhaltiges Finale. Das hört fast nie auf - unglaublich. Das ist, seit dem Jahrgang 1998 der allerbeste Primeur-Figeac. Und er wird ihn vielleicht gar noch übertreffen. Eigentlich konnte man ihn nur auf dem Weingut selbst degustieren. Aber bei der Ulysse Cazabonne stand ein halbes Fläschchen zum nachverkosten. Das ist für mich die fraglose Saint-Emilion-Sensation beim Jahrgang 2015! Davon werde ich viel kaufen! 20/20 2025 – 2050 ”
Jeb Dunnuck 100 Points: "A hold onto your hat wine, the 2015 Château Figeac is pure perfection and one of the wines of this terrific vintage. A blend of 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot and 28% Cabernet Franc, its deep purple color is followed by a huge nose of crème de cassis, black raspberries, smoked earth, and graphite. This is followed by a full-bodied, opulent and incredibly concentrated Saint-Emilion that has everything in the right places, no hard edges, thrilling purity of fruit, and a great, great finish. This is one of those rare gems that carries huge intensity and richness, yet still glides across the palate with no sense of weight or heaviness. Winemaker Frédéric Faye thinks the 2016 is even better but that certainly isn’t stopping me from giving this crazy good wine a triple digit score. Everyone owes it to themselves to try and taste this wine at least once."

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate 97+ Points: “The recent leaps and bounds in improvements that have occurred at this great estate, equating to a dramatic increase in intensity and complexity—without compromising the husky, soft-spoken, sultry voice that is Figeac—is a monumental achievement. Kudos to Frederic Faye and his team for so beautifully expressing what was clearly an extraordinary vintage at Chateau Figeac! Blended of 29% Merlot, 43% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Figeac reveals vibrant black cherries, cassis, red currants, black plums and licorice notes with touches of cigar boxes, bouquet garni, potpourri, damp soil and black pepper. Medium-bodied, delicately crafted and with nuanced, quietly intense layers of vivacious red and black fruits, the palate features a solid frame of polished, rounded tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and minerally. ”

James Suckling 97 Points: “Fabulous aromas of blackberries, black licorice and lavender. Rose petals, too. Full-bodied, deep and powerful with a sexy tannin texture of plush velvet. Long and caressing. Muscular and poised. Needs until 2022 to come together but a modern and focused Figeac. ”

Neal Martin 97 Points: "The 2015 Figeac has a wonderful bouquet with pure blackberry, raspberry and mineral aromas, very focused and precise with discreet earthy scents emerging with time. The palate is very precise with crisp acidity, taut and linear with a very detailed and persistent finish. This is quintessential Figeac trying to steal some of the glory from the imperious 2016! It needs time but just wait until this blossoms. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting."

Antonio Galloni 97 Points: "One of the real standouts of the vintage, the 2015 Figeac soars out of the glass with stunning aromatic presence and beautifully layered fruit. Powerful and yet also light on its feet, it is wonderfully complex from start to finish. Plum, mocha, spice, new leather and menthol gradually open up, but the 2015 is most remarkable for its sensual perfume and exceptional overall balance. This is the first vintage the winemaking team followed a new protocol designed to maintain purity of fruit and aromas by reducing contact with oxygen during the first year of aging. The 2015 Figeac is magnificent."
