Ch Villemaurine wineThe wines of St Emilion are considered by some to be the finest in all Bordeaux. These vineayrds are older than the rest of Bordeaux and often feature Cabernet Franc as the primary grape variety. The best vintages can be expensive!

“Viticulture was introduced to this fertile region of Aquitaine by the Romans, and intensified in the Middle Ages. The Saint-Emilion area benefited from its location on the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela and many churches, monasteries and hospices were built there from the 11th century onwards. It was granted the special status of a ‘jurisdiction’ during the period of English rule in the 12th century. It is an exceptional landscape devoted entirely to wine-growing, with many fine historic monuments in its towns and villages.”

Saint Emilion wines are considered to be amongst the best of Bordeaux. They can be generous, deeply-coloured, and age faster than other red Bordeaux.

The classification in St-Emilion is complex. including various “crus” e.g.  St.-Emilion-Grand-Cru and St.-Emilion-Grand-Cru-Classé (the top)
