"Tasted at the Château Figeac vertical at the property, the 1970 Château Figeac, which was tasted from magnum, has weathered well over the years. It has a thin tawny rim with a mahogany core. The nose is fragrant and perhaps a little rustic, leaning towards the herbaceous side with a ferrous tincture. I would not describe the aromatics as being "past their best," but they have perhaps lost some vigor and I discerned my fruité exhibited by the 1975 Figeac. The palate is well balanced and showed more chutzpah than the nose, elegant and refined with vestiges of red plum and cranberry laced with undergrowth and tobacco. I cannot help feeling that this wine peaked 15 to 20 years ago—there is something elegiac about the 1970—a Figeac that has seen better days, but will continue to give pleasure. Tasted June 2015." - Neal Martin, robertparker.com (Aug 30, 2016)
