Château Figeac 2019 Saint Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classe B was released this morning @ £126 per bottle, down 30% on the 2018 release of £181 per bottle.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown awarded the wine 98-100 points and noted the alcohol level was 14.1%. (With the US 25% tariff on all wines with alcohol levels of 14% and under – this would make it attractive to the American buyers)

James Suckling awarded the wine 98-99 and added, “this is one of the most structured and linear Figeac with very fine tannins, yet at an intense level”.

Jeff Leve awarded 97-99 points and Jean-Marc Quarin – 97.

Figeac is expected to be upgraded to Grand Cru Classe A in 2022 – so the likelihood is the wines will become more expensive when this happens. Therefore, this looks like a good investment option at this time.
