When St.-Émilion was first classified in 1955, Château La Tour Figeac was among the inaugural group of estates to be awarded Grand Cru Classé status. Fans of their wines were not surprised: Since the late 19th century, the estate, located in the sweet spot of St.-Émilion, with Château Cheval Blanc to the east and Château Figeac just south, has produced some of the finest reds on the Right Bank.
L'Esquisse de La Tour Figeac embodies everything that makes this relatively small 14.6 hectare estate so important. It’s a blend of 70% cabernet franc and 30% merlot, all biodynamically grown in the clay-sand and gravel soils that give the wine such structure and generosity.
Vinted from 70% Cabernet Franc and 30% Merlot. Big and bold, this wine, produced from a biodynamic estate, is packed with dark tannins and intense fruit. It is solid and fruity, clearly built for the long haul.
