Tasted at the Figeac dinner at Christies, the 1966 Figeac effortless reproduced the stunning showing at the property in 2015. The bouquet is just wonderful: perfumed and detailed. Perhaps the only difference from the previous bottle is that it was less exotic, a little more classic in style. The palate is medium-bodied, beautifully balanced and extremely refined. Yet it does not shortchange you on depth or intensity as it builds and then fans out on the finish. The fruit profile is more black, yet it is driven by secondary notes of cedar and hints of tobacco that are manifested by the Cabernet component that clearly thrived in this vintage. A brilliant wine. Tasted March 2017.

Tasted at the Château Figeac vertical at the property. The 1966 Figeac is a brilliant Saint Emilion that must rank as one of the best Right Banks of the vintage that is more reputed for its Left Bank wines. Deep in color, it has a magnificent, majestic bouquet that knocks you out: very perfumed and floral with a hint of peppermint developing with time. It is actually quite exotic for the normally conservative 1966 vintage. The palate is beautifully balanced and refined, here quite Left Bank in style with a fine line of acidity, filigree tannin and an effortless finish that will leave a Cheshire cat grin on your face. Pristine bottles such as this should be sought without hesitation. Tasted June 2015.
