"Château Yon-Figeac benefits from one of the largest estates in St-Emilion. The size of the estate means that the 25 hectares of vines are planted on a diverse mixture of clay, chalk and gravel soils, which gives great complexity to the wine. Tasting Notes : A delicate nose of violets and cassis leads on to a rich, well-structured palate of black pepper, dark chocolate, kirsch and damson. Producer : Château Yon-Figeac Method of Production : The grapes are grown on vines with an average age of 30 years. After a manual harvest, the grapes are destemmed and partially bunch-pressed before cold-settling for four days. The grapes then macerate and ferment for 30 days in stainless steel tanks. After a malolactic fermentation, the wine matures on its lees in oak barrels, 33% of which are new, for 14 months."
