CHATEAU-FIGEAC, 1st Great Classified Growth of Saint-Emilion, offers the elegance and the refinement of the greatest Bordeaux wines.
The estate’s location is remarkable, as are its outstanding terroir and its history, which is inextricably linked to that of Saint-Emilion.
Its origins date back to the 2nd century AD and the FIGEACUS family, who gave the estate its name. The Manoncourt family, which has owned the estate for over 120 years, has shaped the unique character of the CHATEAU-FIGEAC of today.

An attractive, deep, bright, purple color.
An expressive, air-light nose leads on to Figeac freshness and aromatics, followed by floral notes mingling harmoniously with nuances of fruit and underpinned by aromas of blackcurrants and raspberries. The palate is expressive and vibrant, cadenced by a clean powerful entry, an enveloping and velvety mid-palate reminiscent of 2015 vintage, and a fresh, lean finish accompanied by tannins of a finesse and minerality that recall the 2016 vintage. The greatness of this vintage is embodied by the amazing harmony between the round and eveloping Merlot, the fresh and elegant Cabernet Franc, and the lace-textured, tender Cabernet Sauvignon. The Chateau Figeac 2018 delivers here the perfect chord from its famous three grape varieties.
Blend: 37% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc.
