And Château 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's brand with a plump body derived from the ripe Cabernet, not imitating the other Chateau, representing the Saint-Emilion!
Surprisingly, currently, and Cheval Blanc vineyard land also chateau with the terroir and history of old field of Figeac was excellent. Also in the Château's oldest district.

This medium sized slightly more than 30 ha Chateau is [Cheval Blanc: from on the diagonal of the road quality sand and gravel hill located (and also currently owns the Cheval Blanc tochiazuma once though included Figeac, momentary). Figeac wines for a long time, from many critics, excellent second at Saint-Emilion wines and has seemed. [Thierry マノンクール] of the owner to do so publicly to the people who visit the Chateau the wine if you ask me, Figeac is this best of appellation. And [van de Figeac] once the wine from the vineyards currently owns the Cheval Blanc that seems says he's reinforcing the fact that had sold only. In addition to started noticing more consumers to the excellence of the other Saint-Émilion, Saint-Emilion quality revolution and known Château of many high-quality wines became more and more produce, Figeac is made to bear the brunt of increasingly fierce competition.
In aristocratic appearance of amiable good Thierry マノンクール extremely Figeac are 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 be imagined from the difference in the price difference. Figeac's precocious svelte, attractive wine is outstanding menthol, herbs, Western Cedar, black fruits, usually with Ruby rich fruit flavor and aroma of the. Despite the proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon astringent in kabacam has the most among major chateau of Saint-Emilion, out better and mature tend to be. Recent vintage (which is laudably condensation even) are already well in 5-6 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 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. One of リブヌル most talented enologists are at told me if I 携われば in wine-making, Figeac can surpass the Cheval Blanc.
Figeac has given good results in the vintage crop. I often struggles judging Figeac in less than a year. Finally meat since I was little staircases where wine is often thin, because smells vegetable stalks look like 茎 っぽく あからさま な outright, marks the second year aging in barrels 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 features.
Figeac price is same as Médoc best second class Chateau of expensive things generally, but seems reasonable, realistic and given the quality of the wine is made. You and promise to visit Saint-Emilion, while visiting the Chateau マノンクール Mr. commissionerhas, escape the charge of negligence. And visit マノンクール owners enthusiastically believe above them, not Chateau located in beautiful countryside with a tasteful huge underground cellar and Figeac and Cheval Blanc and Ausone same level in your outlets.
This Chateau owner's think I unfairly harsh wine here, but I was a big fan of Figeac. I think for example in 2000, 1998, 1990, 1982, in 1964, who drank the Cheval Blanc and as complex as a special year, it is no wonder. This if I buy wine and drink very much enjoyed. However, it lacks concentrated too much of vintage, prematurely aged. It is in because of the criticism. Watery feel to Figeac with wine of finesse is always to help thinking people who drink. In addition, also features such as boxed vegetables leave its wine, Cabernet Sauvignon blend ratio is high because, especially this breed is not enough, it should be emphasized. However, recent Figeac seems has spawned lives up to the capacity of its brilliant terroir wines.
