Before our tour begins, in the chateau's main courtyard, it is useful to place Chateau Figeac within the context of its appellation. The Saint-Emilion appellation covers 5,400 hectares, and includes more than 1,200 estates. There are various soil types. The 4 main ones are: Steep limestone slopes located near the town of Saint-Emilion (2,400 hectares), which are responsible for much of the appellation's reputation. This is where 11 of the 13 Premiers Grands Crus Classés are located. Alluvial sand on the large plain along the banks of the Dordogne. There are nearly 2,000 hectares here as well.

35% cabernet sauvignon, 35% cabernet franc, 30% merlot. Barely opaque in color with a medium broad rim of pale garnet. An aromatic yet elegantly presented bouquet offers up aromas of bright cherry, along with loamy earth. The palate is a medium bodie... Chuck Hayward.

Figeac is a very ancient estate dating from the Gallo-Roman period. Its origins go back to at least the 2nd century AD, at which time it belonged to the Figeac us family, who gave their name to the "villa" located on this site. Chateau Figeac has been in the family of the present owners since 1892. Thierry Manoncourt, later assisted by his wife, Marie-France, took great pains to renovate the vineyards in order to bring Figeac up to the level of the very greatest Bordeaux. Today, his daughter Laure and his son-in-law Count Eric d'Aramon have joined them in managing the estate, and perpetuating the family tradition. Figeac is located in the "Graves de Saint-Emilion". It has an unusual topography and an outstanding terroir consisting of three gravelly outcrops. This explains why Figeac is the right bank wine with the highest proportion of Cabernet grapes. It is a great but atypical wine, often called "the most Médoc of Saint Emilion wines".

Dense blue/plum-colored, with notes of blueberry, black raspberry, cherry, and currants, the wine displays some graphite, charcoal, and incense in a full-bodied, rich, silky, even voluptuous style, with oodles of fruit, concentration, and power, but ...

35% cabernet sauvignon 35% cabernet franc 30% merlot. Barely opaque in color with a medium broad rim of pale garnet. An aromatic yet elegantly presented bouquet offers up aromas of bright cherry along with loamy earth. The palate is a medium bodied experience with a focused narrow and compact profile. There s no textural richness here as fresh acids and notable tannins contribute to crunchy cherry flavors on the tight finish. A correct wine but lacking some excitement. Drink up over the next 20 years. Chuck Hayward.

Really fabulous on the nose, with sweet milk chocolate, flowers, currant and plum. Full-bodied, with incredible length. The tannins are so silky, but they are warm and cuddly. You just want to hug it. Powerful but so attractive. The blend is one thir... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Figeac 1500ml
