Chateau Figeac – St Emilion 1st Grand Cru 2016

RM1,468.00

The 2016 Figeac was bottled at the end of July 2018, since Frederic Faye wanted to give the wine more time in barrel to develop more harmony. The stunning 24-carat bouquet rivets you to the spot with brilliant delineation and mineral-rich red fruit that articulates its terroir as well as any Right Bank you will find. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannin, perfect acidity, wonderfully integrated new oak and enormous depth toward the fresh, pencil-box- and cedar-infused finish. This is a classic Figeac, up there with the 1947 and 1949, both recently re-tasted and testifying to a wine that genuinely belongs among the elite Saint-Emilions. Faye believes it is the best Figeac he has ever made.

About The Brand

One of the oldest properties in Bordeaux, Figeac dates back to the second century, the Gallo-Roman period, through a villa named after the Figeacus family (traces of which are still evident on the site). In 1892 the Manoncourt family acquired the estate and made it the winery we know today. Thierry Manoncourt was the first to settle and live at the estate rather than just have it has a holiday home, and it was under his guidance that Figeac made great leaps forward creating the wines we now know.

This Saint Emilion wine estate has been producing splendid wines and has a fairly flawless record of consistency and excellence. Any indifference to Figeac’s wines tends to quickly fade away when given the privilege of tasting their old vintages – complex, sumptuous, rich and long. The estate itself must be one of the most beautiful and inviting of St-Emilion, imagine a stately and pristine Chateau attached to a large park, the grounds alone are worth a visit.
