Château La Tour-du-Pin-Figeac (Giraud-Bélivier)

The winery is located in Saint-Émilion in the area of the same name (Bordeaux). Once it was a part of Château Figeac (see the history there) from which Château La Tour Figeac was separated in 1879. Three years later, two confusingly named estates were separated from this separate part (see the other part under Château La Tour-du-Pin-Figeac). 1932 the Bélivier family bought the estate and 1972 the Giraud family sold it. Although the label states "Giraud-Bélivier", it is not an official part of the name of the estate. The estate, formerly classified as "Grand Cru Classé", was declassified in 2006. The vineyards cover 11 hectares and are planted with Merlot (75%) and Cabernet Franc (25%). The Giraud family also owns Château le Caillou in Pomerol.
