Château Figeac

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

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

Viticulture in the Saint Emilion area goes back to at least the Romans and it is now the largest appellation in the Bordeaux region producing around two and a half million bottles per year.The wines were first classified in 1954 with regular revisions ...

  • I am a life long wine enthusiast with a preference for Bordeaux, particularly if consumed at maturity. I do enjoy wines from other parts of the world but find I like the ones that have a claret style best. I dislike CA/domestic  fruit bombs that seem so prevalent and popular in the U S.My bias toward Bordeaux was probably set when a friend of mi... Read More

  • I was wondering what sort of new topic I could start that would pair nicely with my previous posting 'Weekday Wines'; well here it is - Weekend Wines.  Sometimes I just have to stop and take a minute to pat myself on the back for my quick wit but alas, this isn't one of those times.  Anyway, why not talk about wines we enjoy on weekends?  These ...

  • Château Figeac St. Emilion Ex-Negociant 2012


    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! How can anyone give this wine less than 90 points is beyond me. A very fine tannic grain, with sheer elegance.  We also enjoyed a truly excellent Chateau Leoville Barton 1999, which I have always enjoyed and it ... Read More
