           On the right side of the Dordogne River, near the municipality of Libourne, St Émilion and Fronsac, this area of the Bordeaux region only produces wines that combine a powerful aroma, elegance, smoothness and an ample tannic imprint.

The appellations of the area

          On this part of the river there are 10 appellations :
•    Saint-Emilion, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru,
•    Montagne Saint-Emilion, Lussac Saint-Emilion,
•    Puisseguin Saint-Emilion, Saint-Georges Saint-Emilion,
•    Pomerol, Lalande de Pomerol,
•    Fronsac, Canon-Fronsac

Terroir and vine varieties

          The main vine used in this region is Merlot and a part of Cabernet-Franc and a touch of Cabernet-Sauvignon. The nature of the ground, consisting in a succession of plateau made of clay and limestone and a mix of sands and crushed limestone is particularly adapted to the thriving of these types of vines.
          Thanks to the influence of the ocean and the moist of the winter chills the temperatures are well regulated.
