What are the specificities of Château Figeac?
We note a particularity for the parcels of Château Figeac. Indeed, shared with those of Château Cheval Blanc, Château Figeac differs from the rest of the vineyards in that its soil is mostly made up of Günzian "gravel", which allows for good drainage while forming three characteristic hills, and a few parcels of wind-blown sand. A specificity compared to the rest of the Saint-Emilion vineyard which is limestone, clayey-limestone or sandy.
A grape variety also atypical, favoring a long storage, approaching that of the Medoc since it is composed of:
- Cabernet Sauvignon 35
- Cabernet Franc 35
- Merlot 30% (only)
The domain opts for a method of culture respectful of the environment: the reasoned culture. The product of the vines, whose average age is forty-five years, is aged in 100% new barrels for an average of 18 to 20 months. The "geo-viticultural" particularity that Château Figeac shares with Cheval Blanc brings the two wines closer together during tasting.
Generally less fatty and less round than its counterparts from Libourne but gaining in elegance by the strong presence of Cabernet, it has the characteristic of maturing very quickly, reducing its longevity.
Today, the Château offers more than just a single second wine tasting. From 1945 to 2011, the estate produced a second wine called "La Grange Neuve de Figeac" and since 2006, a special vintage called "Petit-Figeac". Since 2012, Petit-Figeac has become the only second wine of Figeac and is sold en primeur.
