"Tasted at the Château Figeac vertical at the property. I have tasted the 1961 Château Figeac just once before, when it only intimated a great wine. This bottle proves it. Clear and deep in color, it has a heavenly bouquet that is not dissimilar to the 1964: very concentrated with mulberry, dried honey, molasses and stewed apricots. Magnifique! The palate is medium-bodied and perfectly balanced, perhaps less rounded than the 1964, but driven along by perfectly judged acidity with black truffle and salted licorice surfacing towards the structured and sustained finish. I suspect that there is some variability between bottles, judging by others' comments, but clearly if it is your lucky day, you are in for a treat. Tasted June 2015." - Neal Martin, robertparker.com (Aug 30, 2016)
