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.

Very nice wine, I had the 2002. Very smooth, stylish, and needs to be cellared till 2010 at least. Decant and within one hour blackberries, tobacco, leather and loam disperse in this heavy bodied wine. Great legs that hold throughout the night, and a deep garnet color. A good buy at 40$ but it is important that you allow it to open up to its full potential.

Der Wein überzeugt durch die Aromen von roten Früchten und Minze. Im Gaumen sehr cremig mit einer feinen Tanninstruktur.
