    Description

    The purity and balance 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

    A true haute-couture vintage, Chateau-Figeac 2017 lives up to the Dantean efforts made by the estate's team, orchestrated by the talented Technical Director, Romain Jean-Pierre. In order to get the very best out of this ‘’winemaker’s’’ year, unprecedented measures were taken. From the deployment of a low-flying helicopter at dawn to save the buds from the frost at the end of April, to the marking of each vine to identify first and second generation vines, to the daily monitoring of the vines right up to the harvest, the teams have demonstrated their unwavering devotion throughout the making of this 2017 vintage.

    During a challenging year that required precision, responsiveness and commitment at all times, this Chateau-Figeac 2017 has triumphed with great class and high honors, unsupprisingly establishing itself as one of the finest vintages of its appellation.

    The blend

    Cabernet Sauvignon (47%), Merlot (43%) and Cabernet Franc (10%).

    Chateau-Figeac 2017: Characteristics and tasting tips

    The tasting

    Nose

    Pure and very fresh, the nose combines fruity fragrances (black fruit, blackcurrant, cherry) with delicate floral and spicy notes, giving this fine Saint-Emilion wine both complexity and refinement.

    Palate

    A sumptuous attack precedes an enfolding palate. Silky and elegant, the tannins reveal the fleshy brilliance of the fruit perfectly balanced by a flavorsome acidity. The fruity length guides you to a very fresh finish.
