K&L Notes

Château Figeac is a pretty large Premier Grand Cru Classe from St-Emilion. They hold a total of 98.8 acres on the gravel plateau of St-Emilion, planted to 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc, and 30% Merlot. Just across the street from the fabulous Cheval Blanc, but generally at a much better price, it has a great location for producing fantastic wines. With average vine age of 40 years and the oldest at 100 years, the estate has an even older claim to fame as it was the site of a 2nd century Roman villa. (Clyde Beffa Jr.)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
