Chateau Figeac 1982

Robert Parker 94/100: This is actually a younger, more concentrated wine than the 1990. A dense plum/garnet color with a slight lightening at the edge is followed by a sensational Figeac nose of mint, fruitcake, Asian spices, gobs of sweet black and red fruits, and a smoky component in the background. Medium to full-bodied with lovely freshness, this 1982 appears to be fully mature, but it tasted the same a decade ago, and it should hold at this level for another 10-20 years.

MWH Wine Merchants:  Figeac is one of the most consistent and classical of St Emilion’s and yet the 1982 shows some of the exoticness and richness that was such a feature in the 1982 Bordeaux.  Powerful, juicy and plump, there is much to love in this exuberant wine, one that shows no sign of fading.
