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. The 3rd large sub-division, covering 1,200 hectares, is composed of a plateau located west of the town, and which extends as far as the village of Pomerol. It consists primarily of aeolian sand has extraordinary filtering powers, and is conducive to producing fine wines. Read less

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.

(a very moderate 13.5% alcohol for the vintage): Red-ruby. Aromas of redcurrant and plum are complicated by gravel, tobacco, wild herbs and cedar. Lush, suave and seamless, with noteworthy energy and a restrained sweetness to the fine-grained flav... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Figeac 750ml

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 third each of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.
