Château Petit-Figeac Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: Set in the heart of St Emilion alongside Cheval Blanc, the wines of Petit<br/>Figeac are often considered the 'most Mèdoc of St Emilions'.<br/>This is due to the gravelly soil in this part of the appellation, which means<br/>that Château Figeac uses completely different proportions of grape<br/>varieties to other St Emilion producers: 70% Cabernet (half Cabernet Franc,<br/>half Cabernet Sauvignon) and only 30% Merlot. <br/> <br/>Crafted to be a stylistic introduction to Figeac itself, Petit Figeac is a<br/>micro-cuvée blend coming from some of Ch. Figeac's best parcels.<br/>This exceptional wine encapsulates the unique style of Figeac's<br/>Cabernets, combined with a touch of Merlot, ensuring a silky texture thanks to<br/>a very gentle barrel ageing in French oak. <br/> <br/>This elegant, stylish and forward St Emilion shows a dark ruby colour and<br/>enticing aromas
