From the importer: "Chateau La Tour Figeac owes its name to a tower which still existed on the grounds at the end of the 19th century. Lying beside the same road as Chateau Cheval Blanc to the east, Chateau Figeac to the south, and next to Pomerol on the west, it occupies a magnificent position in the Saint-Emilion graves and ancient sands area. With the object of improving the quality of the production, each wine is aged in an air-conditioned cellar in barrels made of oak from different forest areas until the wines are finally assembled ready for bottling. Depending upon the vintage, the barrels are renewed by between 30 and 50 percent. This estate is the property of the Otto Rettenmaier family from Heilbronn, Germany. Since May 1994, the estate has been under the supervision of Otto-Maximilian Rettenmaier (who studied management at the University of Mannheim) the son of the owner and himself co-proprietor. Aaron Pott, an American, has been looking after the vines and the winemaking facilities since that time. Pott studied at Davis University in California and gained experience in the States with Mondavi, Newton Vineyards, and Chateau Troplong Mondot in Saint-Emilion."
