Chateau Figeac /AOC Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classe (Saint-Émilion first special class)


Saint-Emilion first popular lures people always compared to Cheval Blanc, Cheval Blanc next special class! long MILF in this wine to attract people and supple body is one single stock representing the Saint-Émilion, with voluptuous body derives from the ripe Cabernet, cannot imitate other Chateau!


Chateau Figeac groves was that history and great terroir with any land now Cheval Blanc vineyard to be surprised. Also in the Château's oldest district.



Robert Parker Jr. " Bordeaux 4th Edition "more
the Chateau of slightly more than 30 ha, this medium-sized [Cheval Blanc: from diagonally across the road on the heights of a sand and gravel substrate located (also currently owns the Cheval Blanc tochiazuma once and included in Figeac, momentary). Figeac wines are wines for a long time, from many critics, in Saint-Emilion great second and has seemed. [Thierry Manoncourt] of the owner to so publicly to the people who visit the Chateau the wine if you ask, Figeac is this best of appellation. Wine from the vineyards currently owns the Cheval Blanc used to be [van de Figeac] and had been sold, and the fact that is then reinforced says his. In addition to many consumers started to notice other Saint-Émilion excellence, quality revolution in Saint-Emilion and Chateau unknown for many high-quality wines became more and more produce, Figeac are smarting at the brunt of increasingly fierce competition.

 Extremely amiable best aristocratic appearance Thierry Manoncourt, Figeac is made in a popular style. Top vintage of this wine is close to the neighborhood in style and quality, are sold at tremendous highs Cheval Blanc, don't expect from the difference between the price difference. Figeac is usually Ruby has a rich fruity taste, outstanding menthol, herbs, cedar and black fruits aroma, precocious and supple, attractive wines. Despite major chateau of Saint-Emilion in highest percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon astringent in kabacam, young became well mature tend to be. Of recent vintage (laudably concentrated it's also) are already well in five or six years drinking tend to reach the 20s. In Figeac best only could survive 15 years after bottling. Never overlook these shortcomings.
Figeac to criticize people who say the long delayed harvest of a stunningly short maceration period and, for the second wine if strict separation, make more profound wines here, should be a great wines in the appellation. In Figeac can surpass the Cheval Blanc enologist live Nur the most talented one is if 携wareba wine-making myself, and told me.
Figeac is on vintage crop has given results. Determining Figeac in less than a year, I often have a hard time. Since little staircases where wines are often thin, celebrates second year aging in barrels, that stem like 茎 っぽく あからさま な outright vegetable smell finally meat and increases weight. A high percentage of Cabernet franc and Cabernet Sauvignon grown in sand and gravel based soil that apparently it has caused this strange feature.
If you think about the quality of wines made Figeac price's MEDOC-2 class Chateau of expensive comparable in General, but seems reasonable and realistic. Commissionerhas promises to visit Saint-Emilion, while visiting the Chateau Manoncourt said, would escape the charge of negligence. Manoncourt said enthusiastically believe Figeac is located in beautiful countryside with a tasteful huge underground cellar visit Chateau Cheval Blanc, Ausone and same level of rather than those on the owner will welcome you.

General assessment
 It thinks this Chateau owners I unreasonably strict wine here, but I'm a big fan of Figeac. Special year, for example in 2000, 1998, 1990, in 1982, in 1964, drank Cheval Blanc and as complex as I think it is no wonder. In this case, I buy wine here, very much enjoyed drinking. It's, premature aging, however, lacks concentrated too much of vintage. It is because of criticism. Help thinking drinking watery feel to Figeac wines with finesse at all times, while the others. Also, also in Cabernet Sauvignon blend ratio is high for particularly this breed was not enough wine comes boxed vegetables features should be emphasized. However, Figeac in recent years as has spawned lives up to the capacity of its brilliant terroir wines.
