Château Figeac

+33 5 57 24 72 26 SAINT-ÉMILION, 33330
France

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. – Description from JelaDragoljevic

  • Château Figeac 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Tight nose, not giving but what is there is very perfumed expensive wood. In the mouth this is tight and closed showing some coffee and a hint of date, then shows some plummy fruit and smooth power on the finish. A bit of a powerhouse ut not able to judge today. Judgement reserved. NR Read More

  •    I just posted almost all of my notes on Bordeaux 2012 on my ... smooth yet tannic, while the Chateau Figeac 2005 is just gorgeous!

  • Château Bellerose Figeac "Prestige" Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Light elegant but not as complex as I was expecting from a St Émilion. Good Bordeaux blend but not as mind blowing for the price. Read More

  • If I were anywhere near New York on the 29th I'd be going to this event. Great wine, interesting winemakers, and lots of old posters, art nouveau or otherwise. Why is it I'd rather have one of them on my wall then a Flash banner ad from the Web?Price seems like more than a bargain, and the money goes to charity, too....   ... Here's your chance ...
