Welcome
 

One of the world’s most famous medieval towns and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Saint-Emilion was founded in the 8th century around the grotto of the hermit Emilian.
It lies 40 kilometres north east of Bordeaux and 8 kilometres from Libourne. With some
5,400 hectares (13,500 acres) of vineyard, Saint-Emilion produces approximately 6% of the total production of red appellation wines in the Bordeaux area.

The wines of Saint-Emilion fall into two appellations : Saint-Emilion and Saint-Emilion Grand Cru. In this latter appellation there is a Classification made up of Grand Cru Classé and Premier Grand Cru Classé châteaux, which is reviewed every 10 years.

In style, the hallmarks of a good Saint-Emilion are a vivid crimson colour, a palette of subtle aromas, a full and velvety palate, with balance and elegance.

The Association of Grands Crus Classés of Saint-Emilion was formed in 1982 by Crus Classés growers to promote jointly their own wines and those of the region.
The Association is wholly representative of the various zones in which Grands Crus Classés are planted, thus encompassing all the wealth and complexity of the Saint-Emilion area : southern slopes, plateau, northern slopes and gravely areas.
Together, the 56 member-properties make up a surface of about 800 hectares or 90% of the total surface area of Grands Crus Classés vineyards.

Our wines are created for you, each vintage a new adventure to share.
The wines from properties belonging to the Association of Grands Crus Classés have their own nuances and character, which we hope to demonstrate to you today.

Laurence Brun,
Présidente of the Association of Grands Crus Classés of Saint-Emilion|
