Full description

The wine region of Libournais encompasses much of what is referred to as the Right Bank. Named after its historical capital, the expression Right Bank typically refers to wines from the Pomerol and St-Emilion areas of the Libournais.

There are several villages around the region that share the Saint-Émilion name, such as Montagne-Saint-Émilion and St-Georges-Saint-Émilion which are named the satellite appellations. The area is bordered to the west by Pomerol.

Merlot is the dominant grape in this area, followed by Cabernet Franc and a very small quantity of Malbec that is tending to disappear. The climate and damper, cool soils of the area make it difficult for Cabernet Sauvignon grapes to fully ripen and as such is less often used. Depart for the Saint Emilion wine region and enjoy a visit and wine tasting at a famous classified growth Chateaux of the Pomerol or Saint Emilion appellation. Afterward, arrive in the village of Saint Emilion and enjoy a guided walking tour with your guide to discovering the main monuments of this quaint hilltop village. During your free time for lunch and personal discovery, visit the underground monuments of Saint Emilion. In the afternoon, experience another visit and wine tasting session in one of the selected Classified Chateaus of Saint Emilion.

Fantastic tour with a great guide that took us to 3 different spots for a tasting. The tastings were varied to give a great overview of not only the St. Emillion varieties, but also wines from other parts of the Bordeaux region. Definitely worth the price for all the wine and having a driver take the stress out of driving and finding each place.

This was an amazing experience! My girlfriends and I went on this tour and ended up having the tour to ourselves. Our guide Emilie was very friendly and knowledgeable! We quickly became great friends with our guide. We learned about the wine making process and how to properly taste wine at our first chateau then put our skills to the test at two other chateaus :) Each chateau was welcoming and had a unique feel to it, providing us with a great picture of St Emilion region. The stop in the town of St Emilion for lunch was a lovely rest break and again our guide was very helpful providing us information about the history. Would highly recommend this tour!

We carried out the visit alone, which being just me and my boyfriend. The guide was very nice, helpful and nice. Throughout the journey by car he illustrated the history of Bordeaux, Saint Emilion and the wines grown in this region. The visits to the Chateau were really beautiful and interesting, unfortunately none of the 3 owners spoke Italian .. but we still managed to understand their excellent English. I absolutely recommend it! Beautiful places and excellent wines!
