I know the proprietors of Figeac think I am unduly tough on their wines, but I am a huge fan of Figeac. When it is exceptional, I purchase and drink it with great pleasure. However, too many Figeacs lack concentration and evolve too quickly. Such is the case with the 1996. Medium ruby-colored, with a mature nose of cedar, tobacco, fruitcake, and cherry fruit, it is a light, medium-bodied wine with evidence of dilution. The finish is abrupt with light tannin.
