Michelle Rolan participates in the creation of this blend, and the result is stunning. The intense aroma has a hint of mint. The body is expressive with some mineral notes, and the finish is incredibly long.

More about this wine

Château Figeac

Château Figeac

Chateau Figeac is not just an old mansion, it is antique. The ancient Romans valued terroir by planting the first vines and giving their family name - Figeacus. Wine has been made in this place for 2000 years. Due to the higher Cabernet share, the wine is often described as a representative of the Medoc style in St. Emilion. Since 2010, Figeac has been run by Comte Eric d’Aramon and his wife. It is located in the northwestern part of the appeal and borders the Cheval Blanc. Its 40 hectares are sown with Cabernet Sauvignon 35%, Merlot 30% and Cabernet Franc 35% on a deep layer of gravel. The wine matures in 100% new oak for 18-22 months. It takes him at least ten years before he is fully developed. Figeac is classified 1er Grand Cru Classé (B).

Bordeaux

Bordeaux

Bordeaux is perhaps the most famous wine region in France. It stretches 130 kilometers inland from the Atlantic coast. In 2018, 111,000 hectares of vineyards were registered, a figure that remains largely constant over the previous decade. The main varieties grown here are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc and they are used to make different wines, each producer having its own blend and proportions of mixing the varieties. Here are produced some of the most famous, most expensive and long-lasting wines in the world - the well-known subregions Medoc, Graves, St. Emilion, Pomerol and many others. Bordeaux is divided by the Gironde River on the left and right banks. Characteristic of the left bank (Medoc, Haut Medoc, Graves) is the more serious presence of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend of wine, while on the right bank (St. Emillion, Pomerol) merlot predominates. In addition to red wines, Bordeaux is famous for the production of white, mainly a blend between Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, with the Sauternes subregion and the leading Chateau d’Yquem, famous for its complex and multi-layered, aromatic and sweet botrytized dessert wine.

Merlot

Merlot

Southwest of France is Merlot’s birthplace - the regions of Saint-Émilion and Pomerol. Merlot is nowadays widely planted across the world much like Cabernet Sauvignon because it is an early maturing grape variety and because of its ability to ripen fully even in slightly cooler climates. Smooth, velvety, soft and rounded - an “easy drinking" wine with tender tannic structure - these are the common descriptions of Merlot wines.
