The winegrowers of Puisseguin Lussac Saint-Emilion came together at the dawn of the Second World War, in 1938, in order to pool their tools, their strengths and their investments to enhance the quality of their terroirs.
This is how the cooperative winery, located in Puisseguin, was born. Its winegrowers produce wines from some of the most beautiful Bordeaux appellations: Puisseguin Saint-Emilion, Lussac Saint-Emilion, Montagne Saint-Emilion, Côtes de Bordeaux, Bordeaux Supérieur, Bordeaux and recently the IGP Atlantique.
The Lussac Saint-Emilion appellation
Lussac is located opposite the Saint-Emilion plateau. The appellation covers some 1,500 hectares. The vineyard seems to date back to the Gallo-Roman period. A trilogy of landscapes characterises this AOC: hillside, plateau and lower slopes. The plateau is made up of Perigord sands, which produce pleasant young wines, and the hillside is made up of clay-limestone, where wines with longer ageing potential are produced. These are powerful but elegant wines, which have a good aptitude for ageing.
The appellation Puisseguin Saint-Emilion
Puisseguin is located opposite the Saint-Emilion plateau. The appellation covers approximately 760 hectares. Its name comes from the combination of the word "Puy" which means "mount" and the name Seguin, Charlemagne's lieutenant. These are fleshy, tannic wines with good ageing potential.
You can find wines from these appellations in the shop of the Vignerons de Puisseguin Lussac Saint-Emilion!
