La Perrière

Terroir

The château produces five wines in Lussac-Saint-Emilion – La Rose Perrière, La Perrière, Cuvée La Source, La Perrière Blanc, and La Perrière Rosé – and one from a 2-hectare vineyard located in the commune of Saint-Emilion and entitled to the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellation: Clos les Grandes Versannes.
 
Starting just north of the Saint-Emilion slope, the Lussac-Saint-Emilion appellation has a microclimate that is ideal for winegrowing, with moderate rainfall and hot summer temperatures. 

The vineyards in Lussac cover a succession of small valleys and plateaux, forming a sort of amphitheatre facing due south. The appellation also has excellent natural drainage. The soil is mainly clay-limestone. 

The red wine varieties at La Perrière are those traditionally found in the Saint-Emilion region: 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. Blanc de La Perrière is made from Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, and Muscadelle.
