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. Chateau St. Georges 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, concentratated and silky wine that also shows terrific potential for aging.
