Chateau Figeac St. Emilion 2009
The savoir-faire exercised in Figeac's wine-growing has been developed from a mix of tradition and innovation, underpinned by science-based methods. Since the 1950s, Figeac's wine-growing has been environmentally-friendly and based on careful observation of the vines and on surveys carried out using the latest techniques. These methods are practised by all of the wine-growing team who, as wine artisans, watch over 240,000 vines with the greatest care to ensure the production of the best possible grapes, which is a pre-requisite for the making of a great wine. These wine artisans apply the same care and precision in the cellars to preserve Figeac's distinctive style. In order to bring out the best in every vintage, an individualized approach is adopted, ensuring that the complexity of the terroir is clearly expressed in the wine.

Premier Grand Cru Classe Estate. A ripe year like 2009 is kind to the Cabernet Sauvignon of Château Figeac. The wine is perfumed with new wood and sweet fruits, delicious black currant flavors giving both ripeness and freshness. The wine has weight and impressive density. A star of the vintage.- Wine Enthusiast
