2012 is the first vintage of Chateau Figeac's second wine, Petit Figeac. This new label replaces Grangeneuve de Figeac that was produced in most vintages between 1945 and 2011.
The 2015 Petit-Figeac is quite deep and powerful, especially for a second wine. The richness and ripeness of the vintage comes through in the wine's racy, dark profile. Black cherry, plum, smoke and tobacco are all pushed forward in this succulent, juicy Saint-Émilion. My only quibble here is that the flavors are a bit roasted
