Wine of Saint-Pourçain appellation
The Saint-Pourçain wine producing area, one of two wine producing areas in the Auvergne, is relatively far removed from other French wine regions. Saint-Pourçain is actually classified as part of the Loire Valley wine region, whose nearest appellation is about 150 km away. Viticulture is omnipresent and has evolved with the times, thanks to local wine growers who have the dynamism, genuine expertise and a specific terroir. There are only 17 producers and one wine cooperative covering the appellation’s 640 hectares. 

The appellation is spread over 19 communes with three main soil types: clay and siliceous soils or Bourbonnais sands, producing very fragrant, smooth and spicy wines. Then, to the west of the region, there is granite terrain of volcanic origin (schist, gneiss) and shaped by the "La Bouble" River, giving the wines a subtle balance. They are fresh and well structured. The clay-limestone terrain derived from the River "Sioule" in the centre and south of the Saint-Pourçain wine producing area, results in wines with floral and fruity notes, which are lovely and smooth on the palate, with good balance and long-lasting flavours. 

The white wines of the Saint-Pourçain AOC have a very distinctive character. Their special feature is their original blend of Chardonnay and Tressallier, to which Sauvignon can be added. Tressallier provides remarkable primary aromas that are reminiscent of those of the Viognier grape variety. The red wines of the Saint-Pourçain AOC are created from an alliance of Gamay Noir and Pinot Noir resulting in wines with good structure, freshness, fruitiness and a typical character.
