Le Conseil des Vins de Saint-Emilion
A vivid scarlet robe, a palette of the most subtle aromas, well-balanced and generous on the palate, these are some of the main characteristics of Saint-Emilion wines. However, remember that Saint-Emilion, Lussac Saint-Emilion and Puisseguin Saint-Emilion have many wines. Different estates and vintages produce wines with their own personality; the enjoyment is getting to know them all.Read more
Perrier-Jouët’s light and elegant house style is based on Chardonnay grapes from Champagne’s finest Grand Cru villages.
Founded in Epernay in 1811, it has been overseen by only seven cellarmasters in 200 years. It is best known for its iconic Belle Epoque anemone bottle, designed by Emile Gallé in 1902.
The Graves region is the cradle of Bordeaux white and red wines. The Graves wine district starts at the “Jalle de Blanquefort” and ends just after Langon.
The river forms the Easter border of the vineyards while to the west the pine forest of the Landes serves as boundary and protection alike. But the majority of A.O.C. GRAVES wines come from the area extending from La Brède to Langon, encircling the Barsac and the Sauternes appellation area.
Les Vins de Pessac Léognan
Rigorously selected and controlled by the I.N.A.O, the current production is of the order of 75000 hls with more than 1700 hectares of production or some 10 million bottles (80% Red and 20% dry White). Of this about 20% is exported.
The new A.O.C Pessac-Léognan was born in September 1987 in the very old region of the Graves de Bordeaux, formerly the Banlieue Prévôtale (Provostal Suburb).Cradle of the Bordeaux vineyards, the A.O.C Pessac-Léognan includes 74 Châteaux and Domains split between 10 communes. All located on this exceptional soil, 16 of them, of which the famous Château Haut-Brion, are Classified Vintages of the Graves.
