The appellation of Saint-Georges-Saint- Émilion is separated by the Barbanne River from Saint-Émilion, its more well-known neighbor. As with all Right Bank appellations, merlot is the main grape. Cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon are also blended. Its 200 hectares have clay-limestone soils.
Only red wines are produced. They offer an appealing tannic structure and full-bodied richness. Saint-Georges-Saint-Émilion wines benefit from ageing.
2015 in Saint-Georges-Saint-Émilion:
Spotlight on the 2015 vintage: 2015 in Bordeaux started with an unusually mild spring. May, June and July subsequently were warm and dry, allowing the vines to grow rapidly. An even and consistent véraison occurred in early August. Autumn saw cooler, damp weather, helping build aromatic complexity and power in the grapes before harvest. The highly-anticipated vintage promises to be one for the ages.
