Description

The power and aromatic brilliance of a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classe

The estate

As a Premier Grand Cru Classe, Chateau-Figeac embodies the excellence of Saint-Emilion's fine wines throughout the world. Chateau-Figeac has belonged to the Manoncourt family since 1892.

The vineyard

Chateau-Figeac enjoys an exceptional location, to the west of the Saint-Emilion appellation, on the fringe of the Pomerol appellation. The estate's vineyard covers 40 hectares of vines that are planted on three different gravelly hills. Respect for biodiversity and the flora and fauna are at the heart of the estate's concerns. The grape varieties are Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

The vintage

2016 was a very hot and extremely dry summer. The quality of the Figeac terroir preserved the vines from any complications during the aging period. The 40 mm of rain in September enabled the grapes to reach their full potential. The harvest took place from September 23rd to October 20th.

The vinification and aging

The wine is aged in new oak barrels for 15 to 18 months.

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (38%), Merlot (36%) and Cabernet Franc (26%).

The tasting

Color

Deep, this wine is a beautiful black cherry color with magenta highlights.

Nose

When aired, this wine reveals intense fruity (blackberries, blueberries) and floral fragrances combined with delicious notes of ginger and cedar.

Palate

The attack is fresh and creamy. Precise and gourmet, the palate is seduced due to its structure and its precision. Rich and noble tannins are combined with refreshing notes of graphite due to the quality of the terroir. The finish is persistent, exuding powerful and intense aromas.
