- 96-98+ Punkte Robert Parkers WINE ADVOCATE, Lisa Perrotti-Brown: "The 2020 Figeac is a blend of 37% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Franc and 31% Cabernet Sauvignon, weighing in with an alcohol of 13.9% and a pH of 3.7. Opaque purple-black colored, it bursts from the glass with a beautifully vibrant initial wave of pure, pristine black fruits: fresh black cherries, juicy black plums and ripe blackcurrants. With swirling, a whole array of floral and spice notes is unleashed: lavender, ground cloves, cumin seed, cardamom and rose oil. The medium-bodied palate is surprisingly graceful for the intensity of aromas, featuring ethereal, perfumed black berry notes, framed by a seamless line of freshness and ripe, grainy tannins, finishing on a lingering fragrant earth note. Far more cerebral and quietly introspective than it is hedonic, this could only be Figeac."

- 95-97 Punkte VINOUS, Antonio Galloni: "A super-classic wine, the 2020 Figeac sizzles with vertical energy. The château has made a number of tremendous wines in recent vintages, but I don't remember a Figeac with this much saline-drenched intensity and mineral drive. The 2020 is superb, but it won't be ready to drink anytime soon. The mixture of soil types and varieties, with the high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon, that is such a signature here, was a huge help in maintaining balance and energy in the wine. Technical Director Frédéric Faye certainly seems to have gotten the most out of the vintage."

- 94-96 Punkte FALSTAFF, Peter Moser: "Karamell und Kokos, viel Neuholz, Schwarzkirsche, aber auch sehr frische und reife schwarze Johannisbeere, Minze, Heidelbeere. Ein Beerenbukett. Im Mund mit feinkörnigem, griffigem Tannin in mittelhoher Menge, etwas Süße. Stabile, sich im Abgang ganz leicht grünlich steigernde Säure. Intensive Gaumenfrucht, feste taktile Mineralität, lange strukturelle Plateauphase. Und eine tolle Aromatik! Je nachdem, wie sich die Säure einbindet, eher nur 93 oder doch eine strahlende 96."

- 96 Punkte DECANTER, Jane Anson: "This delivers concentration and intensity, a ton of black fruits, definitely Cabernet dominant in terms of fruit, and its slightly serious character, with a whoosh of juice on the finish. An extremely elegant and controlled wine, with savoury bilberry and loganberry, then peony and tobacco leaf as it opens. Tannins are finely layered but there are a lot of them. Not an exuberant Figeac, but this is rarely a wine that rushes out to seduce, it takes its time and has ageing potential in spades. The gravel soils in the drought of the summer meant the grapes slowed their ripening process, although only the youngest vines suffered blockages, and that combined with the high Cabernet content of Figeac means lower alcohols than the past few years, giving a classic balance and a feeling of effortless success. 75% of the production went into the first wine. Harvest September 4 to October 1, a full five weeks. Their final yield here was around 37hl/ha, (higher than in 2019 at Figeac, which was 34hl/ha). As with on the Left Bank, the Cabernet Sauvignons were the lowest yield (30hl/ha), with tiny berries so had to be careful with the extraction. First vintage in the new cellars."

- 17,5+ Punkte JANCIS ROBINSON, James Lawther: "37% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Franc, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon. 77% of production. Cask sample.
Gentle, juicy and pure with nothing overdone. Merlot provides the broad-brush sweetness on attack, the Cabernet the fresh, minerally notes on the finish. Fine grain of tannin and aromatic complexity on the nose and palate; the finesse is there."

- 96-98 Punkte JEB DUNNUCK: "I loved the 2020 Château Figeac, and this beauty offers everything you could want from this site, revealing a dense purple/ruby color to go with gorgeous notes of cassis, tobacco, sappy herbs, and spring flowers as well as an almost Pauillac lead pencil note that develops with time in the glass. A blend of 37% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Franc, and 31% Cabernet Sauvignon, it's full-bodied and has perfect balance, ultra-fine tannins, and a great, great finish. It brings ample power yet has a weightless elegance and riveting precision reminiscent of the 2016. Don't miss it".

- 97-98 Punkte JAMES SUCKLING: "This is a really sophisticated young wine with tobacco, crushed stone, currants and dark chocolate on the nose, following through to a medium to full body with intense yet linear tannins and a spicy, fresh finish. Some cloves and black pepper. Graphite at the end. Very long. 37% merlot, 32% cabernet franc and 31% cabernet sauvignon."

- 20 Punkte WEINWISSER: "pH 3.7, 13.9 %-vol , Lese vom 04.09 – 01.10.20. Ein delikates Parfüm umschmeichelt die Nase mit frisch gepflückter Waldhimbeere, roter Kirschsaft und verführerisches Veilchenparfüm. Danach weißer Kampotpfeffer, Nelkenköpfe und Lakritze. Am royalen Gaumen mit seidiger Textur, fleischiger Extraktfülle, magisch balancierter Rasse und perfekt modelliertem Körper. Im konzentrierten Finale ein Feuerwerk mit Alpenheidelbeere, Graphitnoten und einer Adstringenz, die völlig ausgeglichen und in perfekter Balance ist. «Killing me softly» beschreibt diese anmutige Diva als Lied perfekt! Im nicht enden wollenden Rückaroma Kirschfrucht und dunkle Mineralik in grandioser Symbiose! Must-Have!"

- 97 Punkte ANDREAS LARSSON: „Ripe but fresh fruit, gentle extraction, great richness of tannin, almost a hint of smokiness, stony with graphite, good nuance between red and dark fruit from the three varieties. Very dense and concentrated with immense but ripe tannin adding a lot of freshness, delicate fruit and good oak intake followed by an impressively long and powerful finish.“

- 19 Punkte Rene Gabriels BORDEAUX TOTAL, Andre Kunz: Konzentriertes, tiefes, verschlossenes Bouquet, Brombeeren, Kirschen, Cassis, fein Edelhölzer, Tabak, Kräuter. Dichtverwobener, kräftiger, frischer Gaumen mit vielfältiger, dichter Aromatik, feinem Tannin, eleganter, fein muskulöser Struktur, kräftiger Frucht, langer, aromatischer Abgang. 2028 – 2050“
