The estate It was in 1938 that Louis Rapin began to acquire vineyards in the appellations of Montagne Saint-Émilion and Saint-Émilion including those of Château La Tour Figeac. Following the acquisition of various plots of vines in 1961, Louis Rapin renamed the complex Château La Rose Figeac. This Pomerol estate located on the right bank of Bordeaux has been managed by Nathalie Despagne since 2013. Upon her arrival, Nahtalie Despagne undertook numerous works to allow Château La Rose Figeac to shine in the Pomerol appellation.
The vineyard Located south-east of Pomerol, the 4.56-hectare vineyard of Château La Rose Figeac is planted in sandy-gravelly soils typical of the appellation. With the plowing, grassing and environmentally friendly vineyards work, the plots of vines, aged 30 years on average, have been cultivated with organic farming, certified Ecocert since 2009.
The winemaking Manual harvest. Sorted by densimetry. Traditional plot-by-plot vinification. Pour-overs, racking and light punch-downs. Pre-fermentation cold vatting for 3 to 8 days. Thermo-regulated alcoholic fermentation. Malolactic fermentation in tanks. Native yeasts. Fermentation for 4 weeks.
The ageing Ageing by parcel. Barrels from 6 different cooperages (50% new oak, 25% oak of one previous wine, 25% oak of two previous 2 wines).
The blend Merlot (85%), cabernet franc (15%).
The tasting Tasted as a wine future, the Château La Rose Figeac 2019 offers a fruity and intense bouquet with notes of red fruits. On the palate, the vintage is structured by smooth tannins, all accompanied by a great freshness. Perfectly balanced, this very beautiful Pomerol can already be appreciated in its youth.
