Saint Emilion

The town of Saint Emilion is located in Bordeaux in the Southwest of France. It is located on the 'right bank' or north side of the Dordogne River. The area around this town is known for excellent wines made primarily from the Merlot grape variety. The area receives frost earlier than the Medoc region (which is protected by the Gironde estuary) and grows Merlot as its primary grape since Merlot ripens earlier than Cabernet Sauvingon
