History

1879

Château La Tour Figeac’s creation dates back to 1879, when it was separated from Château Figeac. A tower, which once existed in its vines, gave it its name. It is situated between Figeac to the south, Cheval Blanc to the east, and is bordered by Pomerol to the west.

1955

As from the first classification of the wines of Saint-Emilion, the Château was ranked Grand Cru Classé. This confirmed both the quality of its terroir and that of its wines.

1973

The Rettenmaier family, having once been industrialists in Germany, took over the destiny of the Château. Since 1994, Otto Max Rettenmaier, advised by the consultancy team of Stéphane Derenoncourt, has managed the estate.

1997

Since 1997 the estate’s vineyard management has been largely based on organic farming practices which, far from boiling down to a strict application of philosophical principles, focuses to a large extent on observation, monitoring and the application of good farming sense.

2018

Start of the process of acquiring organic farming certification for the whole of the estate
