Description

Freshness and intense aromas, a charming Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé wine by Château-Figeac

The estate

As a Premier Grand Cru Classé, Château-Figeac embodies the excellence of Saint-Emilion's fine wines throughout the world. Château-Figeac has belonged to the Manoncourt family since 1892.

The vineyard

Château-Figeac enjoys an exceptional location, to the west of the Saint-Emilion appellation, on the fringe of the Pomerol appellation. The estate's vineyard covers 40 hectares of vines that are planted on three different gravelly hills. Respect for biodiversity and the flora and fauna are at the heart of the estate's concerns. The grape varieties are Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

The vintage

Although the end of 2010 was marked by a significant amount of rainfall, which helped to replenish the estate’s water reserves, the winter of 2010 was particularly cold and dry. Starting at the beginning of April, budburst was even but slow due to the low temperatures. The fruit set, was also slowed down due to the fluctuationd during the month of June. In July and August, the milder conditions ensured the optimal ripening of the grapes and the temperature variations between daytime and nighttime resulted in a perfect synthesis of polyphenols. Veraison occurred rapidly and the vineyard was in perfect condition. Manual harvesting is carried out based on the ripeness of each plot. The harvested grapes are well-balanced and have a nice aromatic complexity, while still showcasing a pleasant freshness.

The vinification and ageing

The grapes are harvested by hand with the greatest care and are optically sorted in order to keep only the highest quality grapes. A long vatting period without extracting the astringent tannins. Vinification in wooden and stainless steel tanks with punching of the cap adapted to each plot. Maceration with an immersed cap, for the batches vinified in wooden tanks, favours a natural infusion and softens the tannins. The wine is aged for 18 months in French oak barrels (100% new oak).

The blend

1/3 Merlot, 1/3 Cabernet Franc, 1/3 Cabernet Sauvignon.
