Montagne Saint-Emilion wine
Montagne Saint-Emilion, a wine from Bordeaux France Vineyards

Montagne-Saint-Émilion is an Appellation d’origine contrôlée (AOC) for red wine in the Bordeaux wine region of France, where it is situated in the Libourne subregion on the right bank of the Dordogne.
Merlot is the most dominant grape variety, accounting for 75% of the planted area. It ripens well and gives wine its colour, a good alcoholic richness, a full bodied texture and is smooth and round on the palette.
Cabernet Franc is an important element of the Libourne plantations and represents nearly 20% of the vineyards of Saint-Emilion. It gives the wine an aromatic flavour, lightly spiced, with a coolness and tannic structure, giving the wine an aged flavour.
Cabernet Sauvignon is representing around 5% of the plantations. It gives wine a gently spiced flavour, complex with a tannic richness, and favourable to its long and harmonious preservation.

Production sites : Libourne, Montagne, Parsac, Saint-Georges
