Saint-Emilion, Bordeaux

Saint-Emilion has to be the most attractive and historic wine village in the whole of Bordeaux (33 Gironde, Nouvelle Aquitaine) with its dramatic position and medieval centre. It has a rich history and traditions including the formal celebrations at the beginning and end of the grape harvest – Fête de Printemps (Spring Festival) in June and Ban des Vendanges (Vintage Festival) in September every year under the auspices of the Jurade de Saint-Emilion, the local wine guild. Saint-Emilion  is registered as a world heritage site  by UNESCO.

The wines here are usually  dominated by the Merlot grape (60%), Cabernet Franc (30%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%) – hence although part of the Bordeaux appellation they are quite distinctive in character as most of Bordeaux favours the Cabernet Sauvignon grape as the predominant varietal. St Emilion wines tend top age well, and can command very high prices – although there is plenty of more affordable wine available. The wines  can be a bit to0 tannic when young. The appellation of Saint Emilion has over 100 chateaux, many of which welcome visitors for a tasting. The wines of Saint Emilion are classified as follows, (Highest to lowest)

  • Premier Grand Cru Classé ‘A’
