Tasting Château Figeac: 17 vintages from 1947 to 2019

Château Figeac's winemaking team has been doing remarkable work, says Yohan Castaing, who charts the St-Emilion estate's history and tastes all vintages from 2005 to 2019 – plus 1964 and 1947.

‘Few estates have given so much thought and attention to details to achieve the most precise viticulture possible.’

The upcoming official revision of the St-Emilion Classification – scheduled to be announced in September 2022 – just might be the occasion for Château Figeac to at long last achieve the highest ranking of ‘premier grand cru classé A’.

If so, this would be on a par with its glorious past and also provide ample justification for the major investments made at this emblematic property in recent years by its owners, the Manoncourt family.
