The 2020 Château Figeac has been released for £1,872 per 12×75, 25.1% less than the current Market Price of the 2019. In the context of rising prices, the 2020 Figeac looks to offer good value at release.
Today’s release received 96-98 points from Neal Martin (Vinous), who called it “a magnificent Figeac”.
Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW (The Wine Advocate) also rated it 96-98+ and said that “far more cerebral and quietly introspective than it is hedonic, this could only be Figeac”.
Antonio Galloni awarded 95-97 points, noting that, “the château has made a number of tremendous wines in recent vintages, but I don’t remember a Figeac with this much saline-drenched intensity and mineral drive”. “Superb,” he said.
James Suckling gave it 97-98 and described it as “a really sophisticated young wine”.
Jeff Leve (The Wine Cellar Insider) awarded one of the highest score brackets, 97-99 points.
The 2020 Figeac offers good value for money. It is priced below the similarly scored 2018, 2015 and 2010 vintages.
This is considered one of the best releases of the 2020 campaign.
