Take the wine yourself from the barrel!

In order to understand the influence of wood on wine, we invite you to taste the same cru from three different barrels. You will have the privilege of tasting a wine being aged.

Origin of the wood, degree of toasting, age of the barrel, volatile aromas will have no more secrets for you! We will also discuss the history of the property, the evolution of the grape and the vinification

Finally, you will taste two wines from Les Roches de Yon (2nd wine) and Château Yon-Figeac (Grand Cru Classé).

About the host

In the shade of its beautiful 19th century residence and its tower, this Château Grand Cru Classé of Saint Emilion perpetuates traditional know-how in each vintage, in search of great quality. Since its acquisition in 2005 by Mr. Alain Château, major technical and architectural work has been undertaken on this Château, for a complete renovation of the operating buildings.

The wine is worked with delicacy and regularity of style, without ever distorting the notion of terroir so important in the eyes of Mr. Château and his team. From this constant work comes a fleshy and tasty Grand Cru Classé, with great aging potential, as well as a fruity and fresh second wine.

Thanks to the use of Merlot and Cabernet Franc in its blends, Château Yon Figeac takes up the codes of classic Saint Emilion. The uniqueness of this Château is defined by the use of Petit Verdot, an atypical grape variety in Saint-Emilion which gives a nice finish as well as a very interesting spicy touch.

Upon entering the property, you will be greeted by a work by the artist Cécile Pitois, representing the duality formed by the sun and the rain in the accomplishment of a beautiful vintage, put in parallel with the duality of man and wife.
