As one of the leading St. Emilion chateaus, Figeac wine is known for its high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon as well as aging potential. In the 1955 Classification of Saint-Emilion it was given a Premier Grand Cru Classe classification, and the estate is said to have exponentially improved since that time. Since 2010 the estate has been managed by Comte Eric d’Aramon and his wife, and today is one of the most sought-after Right Bank red wines. Thanks to the Medoc-like topsoil over flinty and iron-rich subsoil, the fruit is charged with layers and flavors that contribute to the unique and timeless wine profile of Chateau Figeac.
