Château Figeac

Château Figeac is a wine estate in the Saint-Émilion appellation. It is the largest estate in Saint-Émilion, with 40 hectares (99 acres) of vineyards. Due to its soil, which is dominated by gravel, it is planted in grape varieties of cabernet sauvignon (35%), cabernet franc (35%), and merlot (30%). Most other Saint-Émilion wines are dominated by merlot, and Figeac therefore bears a certain semblance to the wines of Médoc and Graves despite being situated on Bordeaux’s right bank. The wine, which is one of the most famous of Saint-Émilion’s, is aged in 100% new oak barrels.

Château Figeac wine carries the rank of Premier Grand Cru Classé (Class B) in the official Classification of Saint-Émilion wine.  It produces a second wine named La Grange Neuve de Figeac, which has been produced since 1945.
