Saint Emilion - Saint Emilion Premier Gr Cru Classe B
Alcohol 13,0 %
Ch. Figeac has been a reference at St. Emilion for many years and was in hands of Thierry de Manoncourt. Unfortunately, he died in August 2010. His daughter Laure and son-in-law Eric d’Aramon continue Mr Manoncourt’s business since. Since the new ranking of St. Emilion, where Ch. Figeac was not promoted to Premier Grand Cru Classé A (instead of B), sir d’Aramon was fired by widow Manoncourt and her four daughters. A new director (Frédéric Faye), an extra manager (Jean-Valmy Nicolas, co-owner of Ch. La Conseillante) and the advice of Michel Rolland visibly improved the image of the cru.
