This was the least-interesting wine visit of the week, but the wine was exceptional.
There was nothing wrong with the tour; there just wasn’t anything about the operations or history that stood out. I guess that’s probably a good thing when it comes to turning out a dependable product year after year!
Though the winery has changed hands many times, the current family has owned and operated it since the 19th century. They inhabit the château, which is closed to the public.
The winery did not have the vintage we wanted, but we ended up finding it in a wine shop in town.
It’s a little confusing driving around the area since there are many Figeacs. It turned out the previous family sold off parcels that became Petit-Figeac, le Mayne Figeac, La Tour Figeac, and Cheval-Blanc.
