Lisa Perrotti-Brown awarded the wine 98-100 points and noted the alcohol level was 14.1%. James Suckling awarded the wine 98-99 and added, “this is one of the most structured and linear Figeac with very fine tannins, yet at an intense level”.

Jeff Leve awarded 97-99 points and Jean-Marc Quarin – 97.

Today’s release comes to the market at a similar release price to 2017 but it receives much higher critical praise. Buyers looking for additional value may look towards the 2014 vintage, at 95 points from Neal Martin, it is offered at a 35% discount to the 2019.
