The Figeac sector of Saint-Emilion has many estates that split off in the 19th century from a grand Château Figeac estate. This Moreaud family wine is smooth, with the fruitiness typical of the vintage and with a gentle layer of tannins to hold it all together. It will age quickly and should be ready to drink from 2019.
