The visit begins with a presentation of the history of the property, then a discovery of the vines: the accent is placed on the importance of the terroir and the blend, two very important notions in Bordeaux. We then approach the vinification in the vat room and the aging in the recently renovated barrel cellar.
Finally, the visit ends with a tasting of three wines, including Château Yon-Figeac Grand Cru Classé de Saint-Emilion, accompanied by a selection of chocolates.

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.

It was an extraordinary experience!! The guide was very friendly and provided a lot of explanations and answered all questions. We took the tour in English and we had no problems understanding it. He recommended a restaurant for us to eat in the town.

Interesting wine tour on a beautiful estate. The wine tasting was delicious and educational, however no meal (other than chocolate) was served. Overall it was a very nice experience.
