Winemaker's Notes:

'Fabulous!' was our initial reaction to the 2009 Ch. Figeac, and<br/>the more we continued to taste it, the more this impression intensified. After<br/>a morning of tasting high-alcohol, turbo-charged Merlots, it was pure relief to<br/>be firmly on Cabernet-dominant territory. The freshness afforded by the<br/>Cabernets in 2009 was clear to see; the luscious, crunchy blackcurrant fruit of<br/>the Cabernet Sauvignon (33%) allied harmoniously with the perfume, minerality<br/>and elegance of the Cabernet Franc (33%). The remaining proportion of Merlot<br/>was just enough to add a juicy plumpness to the wine. All in all, this is a<br/>perfect blend; one of our top wines of the vintage.
