A balanced, fruity and smooth great red wine from Pomerol

The estate
It was in 1938 that Louis Rapin began to acquire vineyards in the appellations of Montagne Saint-Emilion and Saint-Emilion including those of Chateau La Tour Figeac. Following the acquisition of various plots of vines in 1961, Louis Rapin renamed the complex Chateau La Rose Figeac. This Pomerol estate located on the right bank of Bordeaux has been managed by Nathalie Despagne since 2013. Upon her arrival, Nahtalie Despagne undertook numerous works to allow Chateau La Rose Figeac to shine in the Pomerol appellation.

The vineyard
Located south-east of Pomerol, the 4.56-hectare vineyard of Chateau La Rose Figeac is planted in sandy-gravelly soils typical of the appellation. With the plowing, grassing and environmentally friendly vineyards work, the plots of vines, aged 30 years on average, have been cultivated with organic farming, certified Ecocert since 2009.

The winemaking
Manual harvest. Sorted by densimetry. Traditional plot-by-plot vinification. Pour-overs, racking and light punch-downs. Pre-fermentation cold vatting for 3 to 8 days. Thermo-regulated alcoholic fermentation. Malolactic fermentation in tanks. Native yeasts. Fermentation for 4 weeks.

The aging
Aging by parcel. Barrels from 6 different cooperages (50% new oak, 25% oak of one previous wine, 25% oak of two previous 2 wines).

The blend
Merlot (85%), cabernet franc (15%).

The tasting
Tasted as a wine future, the Chateau La Rose Figeac 2019 offers a fruity and intense bouquet with notes of red fruits. On the palate, the vintage is structured by smooth tannins, all accompanied by a great freshness. Perfectly balanced, this very beautiful Pomerol can already be appreciated in its youth.
