Château St. Georges

Saint-Georges dates back to Gallo-roman times when a sumptuous villa overlooked the vineyards. Eventually the Roman domain gave its name to a parish and in time a medieval castle was built. In 1602, a barony was created when Henry IV sold the estate and title to a prestigious Saint-Emilion family.

Victor Louis also designed the splendid Grand Theatre in Bordeaux. In 1772, the majestic castle we see today was constructed. Of the original medieval structure, only the four imposing grey towers were kept. Victor Louis' creation is bordered by a cool, shaded park on the northern side, elegant gardens on the eastern and southern sides, and is surrounded entirely by its sun-drenched vineyards.

On the palate, dark fruit and a warm mouthfeel combine with excellent balance and good structure, the palate filled with black currant, blackberry and dark chocolate, oak spice and a textured tannic backbone supporting the warm pie filling-like fr...
