Professional Reviews For This Wine


JamesSuckling.com | Rating: 98

This is phenomenal on the nose with blackberries, fresh cep mushrooms, forest fruit, and earth. Turns to hazelnuts and dark berries. Subtle. Breathtaking. It's full-bodied on the palate, with superb tannins that last for minutes. The flavor is subtle yet incredible. Love the texture. It is the same wonderful quality level as 2009. This is so fabulous to taste now, but so much better in 2018.

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.

Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend


Six varieties are permitted to be used in a red Bordeaux blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and, less frequently, Carmenere. Each lends a specific characteristic to the finished blends, most of which are dominated by large percentages of either Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings aromatics and age-ability, or Merlot, which adds softness and body. In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet blends are found on the Left Bank and Merlot on the Right.
