Château-Figeac, 1er Grand Cru Classé “A” of Saint-Emilion, has belonged to the Manoncourt Family for 131 years. Today, the family still live and work on the 54-hectare property, tending to its 41 hectares of vines as well as its preserved green spaces, including forest, prairie, waterways, and a plethora of flora and fauna. Figeac’s terroir is unique within the appellation, principally composed of deep, pure gravel over blue-clay subsoil. This unusual terroir allows for a very rare planting in the vineyard: just one-third of Merlot, one-third Cabernet Sauvignon, and one-third Cabernet Franc. Its wines are known for their purity and freshness, with complex aromatic structure and extremely long ageing potential.
