Located on the famous terroir of the graves de Saint-Émilion bordering on Pomerol, this estate was separated from Château Figeac in 1879.
La Tour Figeac was included as a Grand Cru Classé starting with the very first classification of Saint-Émilion in 1955.
The Rettenmaier family has owned and managed the estate since the early 1970s. The vines are tended and the wine made according not only to time-honoured Bordeaux traditions, but also to environmental protection and biodynamic principles. The estate produces its own compost, pigeage (punching down the cap) is practised, and many other natural methods are used.
Winemaking is adapted to the particularities of each vintage and benefits from the expertise of an experienced team, assisted by advice from Christine and Stéphane Derenoncourt, in order to fully reflect the fine terroir. La Tour Figeac is elegant, fruity, and attractively spicy, with hints of mint, eucalyptus, and violet.
