    Adjacent to the Saint Emilion appellation lies Pomerol, showcasing its sandy soils in the southern and western regions, and slightly heavier soils in the east, adorned with a touch of clay. It is within this eastern section, perched upon the marginally higher land where Pomerol meets Saint-Émilion, that the pinnacle of viticultural excellence is reached, boasting legendary estates such as Pétrus, Lafleur, and Le Pin. The dominance of Merlot grape bestows upon Pomerol wines a luscious, velvety character that carries a graceful ageing potential.

    The legend of Emilian 
  • 15
    The earliest traces of human settlements in the region can be traced back to the influential era of the Roman Empire. However, the captivating saga of Saint Emilion unfurls in the eighth century AD. During this time, a resilient monk, seeking refuge from persecution in his hometown of Vannes, sought solace in one of the sublime natural caves adjacent to the modest settlement of Ascum Bas.
  • 16
    Immersed in the humble and secluded existence of a hermit, Saint Emilion purportedly performed a multitude of miraculous acts from his secluded Aquitaine sanctuary. Word of his extraordinary deeds transcended the local boundaries, drawing pilgrims and disciples from distant lands who embarked on arduous journeys to pay homage to him. As a result, the diminutive settlement rapidly burgeoned into a prominent spiritual haven.
  • 17
    Following Saint Emilion's eventual passing, his devoted followers ensured his indelible legacy by christening the town of Ascum Bas with the illustrious name of Saint Emilion. Subsequently, diligent monks diligently cultivated expansive vineyards, bestowing the region's wines with an unmatched allure. Through their skilled craftsmanship, the fertile plains yielded rich and luscious blends predominantly rooted in Merlot, propelling the renown of the local wines towards its present-day zenith. Numerous chateaux in close proximity to Saint Emilion have been honoured with the highest accolades under the esteemed French appellation wine rating system.
