Saint-Emilion Wine

St-Emilion is a commune in Bordeaux which is located along the right (northeast) bank of the Dordogne. The wines here are dominated by the Merlot grape, followed by Cabernet Franc. Soil types include gravel, clay, and limestone. Unlike the Medoc, St-Emilion did not receive its classification until 1955. The commune is the home of such renowned and wildly expensive wines as Cheval Blanc and Ch. Ausone.

  • Chateau Fontbernard Saint-Emilion 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Really, really good. In fact this could stand a couple of more years in the cellar. Black berry fruit, mocha, vanilla, chewy tannins that turn into a sweetish daek cherry on the finish and vibrant acidity make this a classic effort. Drink or hold - 90 points - Paul Read More
