    Figeac is a very ancient estate dating from the Gallo-Roman period. Its origins go back to at least the 2nd century AD, at which time it belonged to the Figeac us family, who gave their name to the "villa" located on this site. Chateau Figeac has been in the family of the present owners since 1892. Thierry Manoncourt, later assisted by his wife, Marie-France, took great pains to renovate the vineyards in order to bring Figeac up to the level of the very greatest Bordeaux. Today, his daughter Laure and his son-in-law Count Eric d'Aramon have joined them in managing the estate, and perpetuating the family tradition. Figeac is located in the "Graves de Saint-Emilion". It has an unusual topography and an outstanding terroir consisting of three gravelly outcrops. This explains why Figeac is the right bank wine with the highest proportion of Cabernet grapes. It is a great but atypical wine, often called "the most Médoc of Saint Emilion wines".

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The medium garnet colored 2009 Figeac features a very pretty perfume of rose hip tea, lilacs and cinnamon stick over a core of red and black currant preserves plus hints of dried herbs and sweaty saddles. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers bags of savory fruit layers with plenty of floral sparks, framed by rounded tannins, finishing on a earthy note.
