The opinion of our oenologists
A wine full of sun-drenched fruit : candied cherry, raspberry and blackberry. Firm but not aggressive tannins, the mouth is round, ample, fleshy and generous. It goes well with red meats, in sauce or grilled, game or cheeses with character.
The Saint Emilion appellation
The Saint-Emilion appellation is located around the mediaeval city of the same name and extends to the town of Libourne. The vineyard, with a surface area of 5500 hectares, produces 230,000 hectolitres of red wine. The mild oceanic climate with a continental influence is protected from frost by the proximity of the Dordogne, the Barbanne and the Tailhas stream. The terroirs are very diverse in this appellation, with a limestone plateau with asteria, limestone and clay-silt slopes and a plain with sandy-gravel soil. The wines of Saint-Emilion are composed of Merlot with a more or less significant part of Cabernet Franc. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Carmenère are in the minority. The ageing period is from 4 to 10 years.
