Château Edmus

Château Edmus lies in the commune of Saint Sulpice de Faleyrens, one of eight communes making up the Saint Emilion Jurisdiction. The Jurisdiction has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999, the first vineyard area in the world to make the UNESCO list. The estate is, quite simply, a gem. Just 1.6 hectares, Edmus is tended by a team of talented winegrowers and watched over with care. Sandy sub-soils with veins of gravel make it the perfect spot for its 0.8 hectares of Merlot and 0.8 hectares of Cabernet-Franc, giving a unique range of stylish wines with natural elegance. Laurent David, owner of Château Edmus, believes that the road to better wine lies in innovation. His mission is to produce the best Saint-Emilion Grand Cru he possibly can, under optimum vinification conditions. It should be as natural as possible, and reflect its terroir to perfection.

AOC Saint-Emilion Grand Cru
Two A.O.C. (Controlled name of origin) share the territory, Saint-Emilion and Saint-Emilion Grand Cru. This region produces wines that are globally imitated but never equalled: Chateau Ausone, Chateau Petrus and Chateau Angelus to name but a few. Yet the historical recognition of wines from the right bank happened later than the Grave or Medoc. Even though wine has been produced since the time of the Roman conquest in the 11th century, the interest in this region only began during the construction of the bridge across the Dordogne in 1820. Everything here is different from other regions around Bordeaux: limestone soil, the climate has a slight maritime influence and strong temperature fluctuations, and the vast majority of grapes grown is Merlot. This gives the wine a bright and fruity roundness that makes them very accessible and pleasant in their early youth with an aging potential as important as the Grands Crus Classés Medoc from the best producers. Saint Emilion is perhaps the most accessible region to discover the Grands Vins de Bordeaux.  The “Grand Cru” appellation is characterized by the qualitative selection, regularly revised, an output limited to 40hl/ha and raising minimum 12 months.
