STORY BEHIND THIS WINE:
Château La Vaisinerie is located on the hills of Puisseguin, at 6 miles from Saint-Emilion. Château La Vaisinerie produces Puisseguin Saint-Emilion red wines, with 91% of Merlot and 9% of Cabernet Franc. The average age of the vineyard is 35 years old.
The appellation « Puisseguin-Saint-Emilion » is said “satellite” of Saint-Emilion. This appellation covers 730 ha. The clay and limestone soil, similar to Saint-Emilion, enables a good water supply for the vine, perfect in case of drought.
The property goes on a verdant space of 25 hectares, on which the vines meet several trees, hedges and a pond. The responsible farming practices on our vineyard of 13 ha favour the blossoming of local biodiversity, real preoccupation on the property.
