The 2000 Château Figeac is now fully mature and at point, yet has plenty of life ahead, showing almost no signs of bricking in color at the edge. It's an incredibly complex, nuanced example of Figeac that shines more for its complexity than power. Beautiful currants, green tobacco, cedar, and lead pencil aromatics give way to a medium-bodied Saint-Emilion with a wonderful core of sweet fruit, silky, polished tannins, terrific overall balance, and a great finish. Building beautifully with time in the glass, it's a complex, nuanced, gorgeous Figeac to enjoy any time over the coming two decades. As is common with this wine, it has a Left Bank vibe and I'd probably guess this was a top Saint-Julien in a blind tasting.
