Histoire et 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.
