LIBOURNAIS – SAINT EMILIONAIS

Area introduction

Some of the most prized Merlot based wines are produced in the area around the town of Libourne (right bank of the rivrer). Because of its climate and soil, Cabernet Sauvignon struggles here, so the wines are primarily Merlot with a high percentage of Cabernet Franc. One of the most well known area of “Libournais” is St Emilion including all the satelites appelations and is home to the famous Classified growth of St Emilion (Angelus, Ausone, Cheval blanc, Pavie).
