Chateau Figeac

With its 40 hectares of vineyards, Figeac is the largest estate in the Saint-Émilion appellation of Bordeaux, although it may now seem tiny compared to the 200 hectares it was in the late 18th century. Figeac is an ancient estate with its roots going back as far as the 2nd century; its name comes from Figeacus, owner of the property during the Gallo-Roman times. Over the years, owners continually bought and sold different parcels and plots, which explains why so many different chateaux have Figeac in their name.
