- Yon-Figeac to Les Roches is the second wine of Château Yon-Figeac , area classified Saint-Emilion Grand Cru . It is made from 25 hectares of vineyards occupying sandy Clay soils. From one of the oldest producers in St Emilion coming from Grand cru status, this wine is great value and the epitome of a young Grand cru wine.
The second wine of the estate, "Les Roches de Yon-Figeac," takes its origin from the name of a selected plot where it is mainly produced. The Merlot varietal dominates this wine which expresses itself in fruity aromas of black cherry and elderberry, that end in a velvety finale. The Cabernet Franc brings aromatic complexity and structure, with slightly spicy hints of plums.
After manual harvest and vinification in stainless steel tanks, the aging lasts 12 to 14 months and takes place in barrels of new French oak for 40% . The result is a wine with a complex nose of woody and fruity notes and mouth full and rich with a nice tannic structure, smoke and vanilla notes and a final long and distinguished finish.
An aromatic complexity mixing black fruits and woody notes associated with silky tannins, the Yon-Figeac in balance and tannic structure bringing together all the qualities sought in a grand cru of Saint Emilion. The colour is intense, deep and brilliant. The aromatic notes of blackcurrant, blackberry and vanilla oak are supported by fine spicy notes of white pepper and clove. Structured, and racy tannins give the wine the essential characteristics of a refined vintage, elegant and feminine.
