Figeac

Background

The origins of Chateau Figeac date back to the 2nd Century - far earlier than those of many famous Bordeaux properties (in general true of the right bank vs left which at the time was mostly marshes).

The terroir is composed of five hillocks, two of which belong to Cheval Blanc, the remaining three being entirely Figeac. As with its illustrious neighbour, there is a tendency to favour Cabernet over Merlot and the vineyards are planted accordingly - Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon (35% each) with the balance being Merlot. Vines average about 35 years of age and sit at a density of 6000 vines/ha. Much less exotic than others in St Emillion, Figeac is often a serious, contemplative wine capable of long ageing (see 1982) and is in many ways a right bank wine for fans of the left bank! Recommended Vintages: 1982, 1989, 1990, 1995, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008.
