Wine of Puisseguin-Saint-Emilion appellation
The Puisseguin-Saint-Emilion appellation is one of those appellations collectively known as "Saint-Emilion satellites”, and is located about fifty kilometres east of Bordeaux, to the northeast of Saint Emilion, on the right bank of the Dordogne. It was granted AOC status on 14 November 1936, and only for wines whose grapes have been harvested on Puisseguin commune land. The production area covers about 750 hectares, with a production of around 35,000 hectolitres. 

The Puisseguin-Saint-Emilion vineyards are mainly planted on clay-limestone soils, sometimes composed of loamy sands. To the north-northeast of Saint-Emilion, the Puisseguin-Saint-Emilion vineyards enjoy a good south-southeast exposure. They are all planted in a stony, porous substrate which ensures that the vines receive a good supply of water, even during dry periods. The winters are generally mild, the summers hot and the autumns, long and sunny. The vineyards therefore enjoy all the right conditions to produce perfectly ripe, healthy and concentrated grapes. 

The appellation produces only red wines, from the Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grape varieties. This is a top-quality appellation with a base yield fixed at 45 hectolitres per hectare. The Puisseguin-Saint-Emilion wines AOC regulations also allow the use of two other varietals: the Malbec (also known as Côt) and the Carménère, but only the Malbec is occasionally used. On the palate, Puisseguin-Saint-Emilion wines have a charming fleshy, pulpy texture, which is never heavy. There are tannins, but finely coated. They ensure that the wine has good ageing potential, as illustrated by the wines from Château Rigaud and Château Langlais.
