Once a walled fortress, Château St. Georges sits impressively atop a prominent hillside overlooking St. Émilion and Montagne. It has long produced the best known wine of the tiny satellite appellation St. Georges- St.-Émilion. The vineyard is comprised of 60% Merlot and 20% each Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, with the oldest Merlot vines planted in the 1950’s. Château St.-Georges consistently produces a rich, ripe wine that is supple, fruity yet well-structured, a wine that can give immense pleasure when young and with the ability to age gracefully for 15 to 20 years.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A well-balanced wine with silky tannins and a fine attack. Firm finish with notes of red and black fruit and a hint of oak. Classic notes of plums, cassis, and cedar abound.
Other Notes
As noted in Hugh Johnson’s Encyclopedia of Wine, the “splendid Château St. Georges” ranks among the top producers in the satellite appellations of Bordeaux’s Right Bank. Its 45 hectares account for 25% of St. Georges-St. Emilion, Bordeaux’s smallest appellation. Since 1891 it has been home to three generations of the Desbois family, each carefully nurturing and improving the property before handing it down to the next. Under the consulting guidance of Michel Rolland for the past decade, the wines of Château. St. Georges are dark, rich and quite concentrated, serious wines that compete with many of the finest wines of St. Emilion.
