The property would have been founded in the 2nd century by the Fiageacus family, then owners of a Gallo-Roman villa. In the 15th century, the Lescours owned it, like the Château Ausone. It then passes into the hands of Raymond de Cazes, an emblematic personality of the estate. He will indeed rebuild the castle in a classic style as well as the cellars. Their presence can also be found at Château Figeac through the elegant 18th century facade or the pillars of the main courtyard. The Cazes family is one of those families who wanted to modernize the Libournais. The castle will subsequently pass between different hands. In 1892, the Manoncourt family bought Château Figeac, they still own it today. In 1947, Thierry Manoncourt took over the estate and decided to keep the good traditions while improving technical mastery and consequently the quality of his wines. The efforts of the Manoncourt family will be rewarded. Since 1955, Château Figeac has been classified Premier Grand Cru Classé. It is now his children who have taken over the estate and are committed to perpetuating the values ​​of the family.

An attractive, deep, bright, purple color. An expressive, air-light nose leads on to Figeac freshness and aromatics, followed by floral notes mingling harmoniously with nuances of fruit and underpinned by aromas of blackcurrants and raspberries. The palate is expressive and vibrant, cadenced by a clean powerful entry, an enveloping and velvety mid-palate reminiscent of 2015 vintage, and a fresh, lean finish accompanied by tannins of a finesse and minerality that recall the 2016 vintage. The greatness of this vintage is embodied by the amazing harmony between the round and eveloping Merlot, the fresh and elegant Cabernet Franc, and the lace-textured, tender Cabernet Sauvignon. The Chateau Figeac 2018 delivers here the perfect chord from its famous three grape varieties.

Taste: With its rich swathe of Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine has density and immense structure balanced by stunning black fruits that give impressive promise. This powerful wine is probably the greatest ever produced from this estate.
