Premier Grand Cru Classé B - Saint-Émilion
What are the specificities of Château Figeac?
There is a particularity for the parcels of the
An equally atypical grape variety, favouring long ageing, similar to that of the Médoc since it is composed of:
- Cabernet Sauvignon 35%
- Cabernet Franc 35%
- Merlot 30% (only)
The estate opts for an environmentally friendly method of cultivation: reasoned cultivation. 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 special 'geoviticole' feature that the château Figeac shares with Cheval Blanc brings the two wines closer together during tasting.
Generally less fat and less round than its Libourne counterparts but gaining in elegance by the strong presence of Cabernet, it has the characteristic of reaching maturity very quickly, reducing its longevity.
The Château now only offers one second wine tasting. Indeed, the estate produces from 1945 to 2011 a second wine called "La Grange Neuve de Figeac" and since 2006, a special vintage called "Petit-Figeac". Since 2012, Petit-Figeac has become Figeac's only second wine and is sold as a primeur.
