Chateau St. Georges ranks among the top producers in the satellite appellations located within Bordeaux's famous Merlot region of St. Emilion. The vineyard estate changed hands several times following the French Revolution until Petrus Desbois purchased it in 1891. Petrus Debois used the estate as a private family home and vineyard, and carefully enhanced its quality first by grafting new vines onto American rootstock thereby replacing the existing beleaguered vines with fresh.
Today, Chateau St. Georges is overseen by the third generation of Desbois family. Their Chateau St. Georges St. Emilion is aged 18 months in new French oak. The famed oenologist Michel Rolland guides this red blend of Merlot (60%), Cabernet Sauvignon (20%), and Cabernet Franc (20%) into a dark, rich, concentrated and silky wine that also shows terrific potential for aging. Chateau St. Georges pairs extremely well with fall and winter dishes, ranging from hard and soft cheeses to cassoulet, stews, and fish, to roasted chicken, pork and grilled beef.
