Saint-Emilion is a wine appellation in the Bordeaux region of France which was established in November 1936. Only red wines are permitted in this appellation.
The red wines can be made from the following principal grape varieties: Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Malbec (Cot) and Merlot. Petit Verdot can also be added but must comprise less than 10% of the blend.
There is also a related appellation of Saint-Emilion Grand Cru which was created in October 1954 which has stricter yield requirements.
