ABOUT THE WINE
An ancient vineyard, named after its Gallo-Roman owners, the Figeacus family, the Figeac estate has been continually occupied and farmed for at least two thousand years. The terroir is very special indeed; a large part of the original 200-hectare estate was sold off during the 18th Century to the Ducasse family to become Chateau Cheval Blanc, and other sections contribute to some of the finest estates in the appellation. The 42-hectare vineyard that remains contains vines over 100 years of age, with an unusually high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon planted.

TASTING NOTES
A fantastic wine year for many estates in Saint-Emilion and Pomerol, 2009 was a vintage marked by over-ripe Merlot-dominated wines; at Figeac the warm vintage allowed their Cabernet-dominated style to shine. Luscious and opulent aromas lead to a floral, savoury palate with dried herbs and lilac nuances overlaying a core of red and black fruit. An exceptional Figeac.

FOOD PAIRING
Grilled and roast lamb with garlic and rosemary.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
In vintages like 2009, Figeac often displays characteristics more reminiscent of the Medoc.
