2010 Château Figeac, 1st Grand Cru Classé, Saint-Emilion
Following on from last year’s marvel, Figeac has done it again. A huge, brooding beast below the surface, it is almost impenetrable with a dark red/black colour and a viscosity to match. Having said that, this does not take anything away from the wine, it is incredible! Super-fine tannins, a sweet, silky, velvet-like mouthfeel, this has amazing complexity and a vibrancy that takes your breath away. It might even be better than 2009, if that’s possible. This should be a Right Bank First Growth. Brilliant.
