Chateau Figeac

22 years

Deep garnet colour. Complex nose of warm blackberry, hung meat, tobacco, cloves and cinnamon. The medium bodied palate is elegantly styled and well balanced with medium acidity and soft, silky tannins. Still plenty of ripe, rich, dark berry fruit complimented by a suggestion of truffles. Long finish. Drink now – 2012. *** Elegance, finesse, and a very forward style, particularly for this vintage, make this a delicious wine to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the proprietors, the Manoncourts. The wine is medium-bodied with distinctive weedy, tobacco, and red as well as black currant notes, along with cherry, vanilla, and cedar. The wine is soft, forward, seemingly fully mature, but the cunning thing about Figeac is that it can last for longer than it seems to suggest when young. This is Bordeaux at its most elegant. Anticipated maturity: Now-2012. Last tasted, 12/02.

Chateau Figeac

Chateau Figeac is a highly rated wine production estate based in the Saint Emilion region of Bordeaux, France. The primary wine Chateau Figeac is classified as Premier Grand Cru Classe (B) as per the official classification of Saint Emilion wine.

Although Chateau Figeac is a prominent right bank wine, many describe it as having the characteristics of fine wines from the Medoc and Graves, most likely due to the grape selection. Chateau Figeac contains around 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc and 30% Merlot; whereas most Saint Emilion wines have a higher percentage of Merlot, this elite fine wine is far more balanced.

Chateau Figeac is the largest winery in Saint Emilion, spanning around 40 hectares of pure vineyards, and the annual production of its primary wine is around 10,000 cases. The estate also has a second wine in production since 1945 labeled La Grange Nueve de Figeac.
