Lying east of the Dordogne river, Saint Emilion is situated on the Right Bank of Bordeaux's winegrowing region. Arguably one of the most beautiful places in the Bordeaux area, it is a pitturesque medieval village steeped in history. Newcomers to Bordeaux would be advised to first visit and taste Saint Emilion, not only for its Unesco World Heritage listed village and vineyard but also for its wines which are often softer and friendlier than some of their counterparts on the Left Bank, and particularly those of the grand estates of the Médoc. Saint Emilion’s clayey soils are cool and therefore more suitable for merlot by slowing the grapes’ ripening process, achieving a complexity of aromas and finesse that will impress even the most recalcitrant of wine tasters. Famed Saint Emilion wines including Cheval Blanc, Château Pavie, Ausone and Château Angélus, are created using merlot, often blended with cabernet franc to provide freshness, structure and elegance.
Saint Emilion lies close to other famous names such as Pomerol and Fronsac and offers a whole host of things to see and do such as the monolithic underground church, carved from limestone rock in the 11th century or the Hermitage of Saint-Émilion, the cave home of the 8th century monk who gave the town its name. So it would be a shame to leave before you've had time to wander the streets and vineyards of this beautiful spot.
