The great terroir of this property dates back to the ancient Gallo-Roman period, more than two-thousand years ago, when Figeacus named the property’s villa after himself. Today, Château-Figeac carries the traditional qualities of its history, beside its Premier Grand Cru Classé status. Owned by the Manoncourt family for over 120 years, Madame Manoncourt and her daughters are currently responsible for the day-to-day responsibilities alongside their highly committed team. Bordering the Pomerol appellation, the château lies west of the Saint-Émilion village with 40-hectares planted to vines. With an unusually high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc for the Right Bank, Figeac dedicates just one-third to Merlot plantings. Their savoir-faire practices accumulated over the centuries are now flawlessly intertwined with the innovations they have made in both their viticulture and vinification technologies. The resulting wines are unavoidably refined but powerful. They present an elegant balance of dark, even spicy fruit with subtly oaked notes. The Grand Vin, Figeac is pleasantly structured and long-lived.
