Tours and tastings in Saint-Emilion-Pomerol-Fronsac
Definitely the most famous village in the entire Bordeaux wine country, Saint-Emilion owes its reputation to both its exceptional land and its medieval citadel, a UNESCO world heritage site. The 200 kilometers of underground tunnels dug in order to extract the
limestone used to build the fortress were re-used by the local wineries as excellent cellars. The soil, rich in clay, makes it a first choice for producing Merlot, a variety that gives the wines of the Saint-Emilion area a well-rounded and fine taste.
The Pomerol area, the fief of the Château Petrus winery, borders on Saint-Emilion and produces exceptionally high-quality wine. An area where Merlot grapes are the king, the Pomerol area's wines can be drunk fresh or kept in a cellar for years.
The names Fronsac and Canon-Fronsac, in turn, belong to the Fronsadais area. Located north-east of Libourne, this wine-growing region is characterized by soil that favors the production of great red wine. It produces balanced and full-bodied wines, which are often perfect for cellaring.
