Tasted at the Château Figeac vertical at the property from magnum, the 2003 Figeac is a commendable Right Bank for the vintage, but in the company of other vintages, its shortcomings are all too obvious. Firstly, it looks more mature than vintages from the 1990s. Then the nose is mulchy, fungal and fully mature with a nagging vegetal note. The palate has a "gritty" entry, the acidity nicely realized, though there is some dryness on the finish that is jarring and leaves you feeling unfulfilled. I've tasted far worse Saint Emilion 2003s, but I would be inclined to drink this sooner rather than later. Tasted June 2015. Neil Martin  - eRobertParker.com #226 - August 2016
