Saint-Emilion and Wine

Saint-Emilion also owes its reputation to the exceptional character of its terroir.
The quality of its wines is explained by a remarkable geological diversity (limestone, clay-limestone, gravel and sandy soil) and a microclimate perfectly adapted to viticulture.
The Château La Dominique is a Grand Cru Classé de Saint-Emilion since the first classification of the appellation which dates from 1955.
