A Grand Cru Classé of Saint-Émilion, Château La Tour Figeac was founded in 1879, at which time it was separated from Château Figeac to which it was historically linked. The Château La Tour Figeac vineyard enjoys an exceptional location, on the edge of the Pomerol appellation. The 14.6-hectare vineyard is located between Château Cheval Blanc and Château Figeac. The 2019 vintage marked the second year in the estate’s conversion to organic farming. At the cellar, 2019 was a decisive year since the barrel cellar was completely renovated. La Tour Figeac has also chosen to invest in 400 litre barrels and amphorae. These measures aim to enhance the finesse of the tannins in the estate's wines, while also retaining great purity in the expression of the fruit.
The Château La Tour Figeac 2019 offers a beautiful expression of the great terroir of the "Graves de Saint-Émilion". "Freshness, elegance, brightness, intensity", these are the 4 terms used by the property to define this great 2019 vintage of Château La Tour Figeac.
