2021 VINTAGE Chateau Figeac about the 2021 vintage: " The first vintage to be vinified in our new winery, born under complex climatic conditions, the 2021 reveals once again the great qualities of the Chateau Figeac terroir. "
WINEGROWING The winter was mild and rainy, which caused the vines to develop early. The spring cold spells were contained by a constant mobilization of the teams. The months of May and June, cooler than normal for the season, slowed down the development of the vine, but the milder temperatures in July allowed the grapes to ripen at the usual dates. The berries reached optimal ripeness thanks to a sunny and dry climate. The Merlot harvest began on September 21 and ended on October 1. The Cabernet Franc harvest started on October 4th and ended on October 19th. Finally, the harvest of Cabernet Sauvignon started from October 4th to 19th.

History and anecdotes

Château Figeac is classified “B” as Premier Grand Cru in Saint-Emilion appellation. The estate would be named after the Figeacus family who, in the 2nd century, settled where the actual Château is.

The estate's history started in the 15th century. Several owners succeeded each other and some of them sold plots which are now part of the Cheval Blanc vineyard. In 1892, the estate became the Manoncourt family’s property. Thierry Manoncourt, forerunner of the vineyard scientific approach, is behind the creation of the Figeac style.

Figeac’s nickname is “the most Medoc of the Saint-Emilion” because of its atypical grape varieties mainly composed of Cabernet.

The estate has 12 hectares of pasture, 100-year-old trees, as well as a large orchard, which is in favour of biodiversity and the development of pollinating insects.
