Chateau Figeac began in the 2nd century as a Roman villa and ever since has remained one of the most iconic and largest premier wine estates of the area. Figeac has an unusually large proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon for a Saint-Emilion but it makes it perfect to go with selected game dishes including wild boar and venison without becoming overpowering with its size.
100% aged in new French oak barrels. Pronounced but elegant on the nose with developing ripe dark fruit supported by wood spice and cinnamon. Powerful yet simple, with plenty of aromatic fruit and well-integrated oak. It is big and youthful but with some signs of ageing and maturation, therefore will benefit from decanting to allow it to breath for a couple of hours before consumption.
