A fruity and silky 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, Nathalie Despagne undertook numerous works to allow Chateau La Rose Figeac to shine in the Pomerol appellation.

The vineyard

Located south-east of Pomerol, the 4.28-hectare vineyard of Chateau La Rose Figeac is planted in sandy-gravelly soils typical of the appellation. With the plowing, grassing and environmentally friendly vineyard work, the plots of vines, aged 30 years on average, have been cultivated with organic farming, certified Ecocert since 2009.

Winemaking

Manually harvested, the grapes are subject to a sorting by densimetry on the vines and at the cellar. Traditional plot-by-plot vinification. Pour-overs, racking and light punch-downs. Pre-fermentation cold vatting for 3 days. Thermo-regulated alcoholic fermentation with native yeasts. Maceration for 2 to 4 weeks before the running-off for the malolactic fermentation carried out in 225- and 500-liter barrels, and in a stainless steel vat of 40hL. Aging in barrels (60% new oak, 40% second-fill barrels, of which 20% in barrels of 500 liters).

The blend

Chateau La Rose Figeac 2020 is made of a blend of Merlot (70%) and Cabernet Franc (30%).

Tasting

As a wine future, the Chateau La Rose Figeac 2020 seduces with its bright fruit, its silky feel and its beautiful length throughout the tasting.
