80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
Cherry in color with ruby reflections, Château La Pierrière offers a bouquet rich in aromas of red fruits. On the palate, very ripe fruit followed by silky and melted tannins characterize this wine in a style close to Saint-Emilion. A supple, elegant and harmonious wine.
Château la Pierrière was built in the 13th century on the top of a rocky hillside to which it owes its name. This magnificent feudal manor has been in the hands of the de Marcillac family since 1607. Its sizeable vineyard lies on a well sun-oriented plateau, over the Dordogne river, next to the Saint-Emilion appellation. The proximity explains the remarkable quality of the vineyard, essentially composed of clay and limestone over rocky subsoil, ideally suited for the expression of the Merlot grape.
The vineyard is about 40 hectares large and the vines are about 15 years of age. Following in the footsteps of his father, Olivier de Marcillac carries on the family tradition both in the vineyard and in the cellars. He has combined long-standing tradition with the implementation of the latest techniques, backed by the advice from Kressmann wine-makers.
