Professional Reviews For This Wine


Jancis Robinson | Rating: 19

In magnum. Blackish deep colour with a brownish edge. Real minerals and lively aroma. Sweet and very, very long. Very flattering right through. Purer than the 1971. Very good indeed. Pure Figeac.

About This Producer


Chateau Figeac lies in the north-west part of the Saint-Emilion appellation in an area referred to as "Graves de Saint-Emilion", a location shared with Chateau Cheval Blanc. This sub-division consists of 60 hectares of gravel, which devides it from the limestone slopes near the center of town and the sands along the plain. Unlike most other wines from St. Emilion, Chateau Figeac is not Merlot-based (a grape that thrives on limestone soils). Rather, its Medoc-style blend is dominated by Cabernet, a grape that prefers gravelly soil. The typical composition is 70% Cabernet (half Cabernet Franc, half Cabernet Sauvignon) and only 30% Merlot. This estate consists of 40 hectares producing approximately 10,000 cases. The property is owned by Thierry Manoncourt and family and is classified as a 1er Grand Cru Classe (B). La Grange Neuve de Figeac is the estate's second wine.
