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


Special star next to that Cheval Blanc, Cheval Blanc compared to lure people always popular Saint-Emilion! long MILF in this wine to attract people with a supple body is one single stock representing the Saint-Émilion, with a plump body derives from the ripe Cabernet, another Chateau is no match!


Surprisingly, currently, and Cheval Blanc vineyard land also chateau with the terroir and history of old vineyards of Figeac was excellent. Also in the Château's oldest district.



Robert Parker Jr. " Bordeaux 4th Edition "more
slightly more than 30 ha, this medium-sized Chateau is [Cheval Blanc: from diagonally across the road on the heights of the sand and gravel substrate located (also horse chestnut is now owned by the Cheval Blanc once and included in Figeac, more comfortable). Figeac wine with wine for a long time critic of many outstanding, second in Saint-Émilion 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 is now owned by 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 started noticing more consumers to the excellence of the other Saint-Émilion, Saint-Emilion quality revolution and Figeac is bearing the brunt of increasingly fierce competition is headed by known Chateau in many high-quality wines became more and more produce.

 Very good staff of an aristocratic Thierry Manoncourt, Figeac is made in a popular style. Top vintage wines here are close in style and quality, are sold at tremendous highs near Cheval Blanc, don't expect from the difference between the price difference. Figeac is precocious, flexible, attractive wine with aromas of black fruits, Western Cedar, herb, menthol and rich fruit flavors, usually with Ruby. Despite the major chateau of Saint-Emilion in highest percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon astringent in kabacam out better and 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. Alone is Figeac best could survive 15 years after bottling. Never overlook these shortcomings.
Figeac to criticize people who say delayed the harvest of a stunningly short maceration period is long and sorting by severely for the second wine, make more profound wines here, should be great wines in the appellation. In Figeac can surpass the Cheval Blanc enologist live Nur the most talented one, if 携wareba making wine myself, and told me.
Figeac is vintage crop has given good results. Determine the Figeac in less than a year, I often have a hard time. Finally since I was little staircases where wines are often thin, marks the second year aging in barrels, that smells like stem 茎 っぽく あからさま な outright vegetables with 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 the wine have made Figeac price's best Médoc 2 class Chateau of expensive ones and comparable in General, seem to be 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 owners will welcome you.

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