Saint-Emilion wines, a Magic quartet.

Saint-Emilion, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Lussac Saint-Emilion and Puisseguin Saint-Emilion: worldwide, these four names are synonymous with pleasure of the senses. These appellations d’origine contrôlée constitute the core of a region rich in great vineyards.

Saint-Emilion and Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, an addition of talent

The Saint-Emilion and Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellations are geographically intertwined. They extend over nine towns whose mere enumeration already makes you dream. The first is Saint-Emilion, which is the epicenter of the vineyards since the arrival of the monks in the eighth century. The villages of Saint-Christophe-des-Bardes, Saint-Etienne-de-Lisse, Saint-Hippolyte, Saint-Laurent-des-Combes, Saint-Pey-d’Armens, Saint-Sulpice-de-Faleyrens and Vignonet complete the picture, plus, in part Libourne. These areas, with an average area of 8 hectares, constitute an average of 65% Merlot. With rich terroirs, each property produces a wine with unique characteristics.

Lussac Saint-Emilion - the convergence of roots

Viticultural lands of Lussac Saint-Emilion are the most northern appellations of Saint-Emilion. Facing south, the vines are layered from plateaus to valleys to form an amphitheater. It's a nice nod to a vineyard that already had a fine reputation in the Gallo-Roman period. Today, Lussac Saint-Emilion wines exhale rich and intense aromas. The young wines have licorice, leather and prune notes. The older wines impress with their notes of game, both velvety and robust.

Puisseguin Saint-Emilion - limestone and fertile soil

Between the Lussac Saint-Emilion appellation and a small river named Barbanne, the Puisseguin Saint-Emilion appellation faces the famous plateau of Saint-Emilion. Its soil creates nectars with a dense, deep color, combined with a wide range of aromas. Merlot, which constitutes 80% of the vine, is fully expressed. In their youth, Puisseguin Saint-Emilion wines are characterized by the presence of fruit. Over the years, the bouquet evolves towards fig and towards more full-bodied tones of licorice and mint. On the palate, Puisseguin Saint-Emilion wines charm by their meaty, luscious yet light texture.
