Chateau Figeac Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classe 2018

13% abv

Vol- 75cl

The 2018 Figeac is composed of 37% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Cabernet Franc, with a 3.7 pH and 14% alcohol. Deep garnet-purple in color, it soars out of the glass with opening notes of freshly crushed red and black cherries, mulberries and ripe, juicy plums, followed by hints of violets, damp soil, cedar chest, crushed rocks and pencil shavings. The medium-bodied, elegantly styled palate features bags of freshness and exquisitely ripe, beautifully poised tannins to support the bright, energetic black and red fruit layers, finishing on a lingering fragrant earth note. This is absolutely recognizable as being cut from the same cloth as old-school Figeac, but all the recent vineyard and winemaking improvements have unveiled the beautifully ripe, intense, nuanced potential here. Bravo to managing director/winemaker Frédéric Faye and his team! Although there is a lot to love about this wine right now, give it 5-6 years for the oak to fully integrate and the underlying perfume suggestions to emerge, then enjoy over the next 20-25 years or more. 97 points, Lisa Perotti-Brown, Wine Advocate, April 2021

Located in the heart of the Saint-Émilion area, a UNESCO World Heritage site, Château-Figeac is the flagship estate of a family that has always been committed to promoting and advancing the region’s prestige and reputation. Spanning 54 hectares (133 acres) in a single sweep, the entire estate has First Growth status, though nearly a quarter is left unplanted with vines in order to preserve a high-quality living environment and an overall natural balance. Here, biodiversity is both self-evident and a long-standing commitment. With its château, its exceptional vinegrowing terroir and its remarkable natural areas, the estate is regarded as the green oasis of Saint-Émilion. Château-Figeac’s vinegrowing terroir is a geological exception for its appellation, with three quartz and flint gravel outcrops, several metres deep, and blue clay subsoil, forming an infinite patchwork of plots planted with the three grape varieties which give the wine its core identity.
From time immemorial, the land and the people of Château-Figeac have played an active part in the life of the City of Saint-Émilion and of the Bordeaux region, whether at the time of Élie de Carle, [“knight of the vines”], in the 18th century or, more recently, of Thierry Manoncourt and his descendants. President of the Jurade de Saint-Émilion brotherhood for 23 years, he travelled all over the world, accompanied by other winegrowers from both Right and Left banks and paved the way for future generations.
Hospitality is a key value at Figeac, along with encouraging winegrowers to share their experience with one another and with academic researchers, and helping to promote the region’s international reputation.
