Winery Info/ Brand



Chateau La Tour Figeac is owned and managed by the Rettenmaier family. The Rettenmaier family purchased the estate in 1973. The vineyards are located in very good St. Emilion terroir. With well-known neighbours with Chateau Figeac to the south, Chateau Cheval Blanc to the east and to the north and west you find the Pomerol appellation just a few rows of vines away. Located on the border of St. Emilion and Pomerol, the 14 Right Bank vineyards of Chateau La Tour Figeac have a terroir that is a blend of gravel and sandy-clay, atop a subsoil of clay soil.

Region Info/ Origin



Saint-Emilion is a charming medieval village located in the heart of the famous Bordeaux wine area. It is a unique site where world-famous wineries, beautiful architecture and great monuments can be found. The legend tells a story about a monk, Emilion, from Brittany who fled from his hometown in Vannes to seek refuge in the eighth century. Living the life of a hermit, he accomplished a few miracles and rapidly became famous in the region and even far beyond its border. Even after his death his followers carried on his legacy and even named the town after his name. From the ninth century to the 19th century, men had the will to mine the soil in order to standardise the whole architectural looking of not only the city of Saint-Emilion but also a few ones in the region (such as Right Banc Bordeaux).
