It shares with the latter, roughly half, the exceptional gravel terrain found at this location, 4km from the other Premiers Crus Classés.

Figeac wines are distinguished by a great richness of sap, a rare delicacy, an unusual elegance, united to an extremely developed bouquet and by a very great longevity.

The entire harvest is manual with an average annual production of 156 barrels, ie around 180 to 200,000 bottles for an average yield per hectare of around 3,500 to 3,600 liters. The wine is aged entirely in new barrels for 15 to 22 months depending on the vintage.
