A deep, ruby colour. The nose offers extremely pleasing aromas of soft red berries

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.

Tasting

A deep, ruby colour. The nose offers extremely pleasing aromas of soft fruit, such as blackcurrant and raspberry. On the palate, the very ripe fruit is backed by silky, mellow tannins, producing a style of wine identical to that of Saint-Emilion. The most recent vintages offer a superb expression of the balance, harmony and smoothness of this wine.
