Saint Émilion Grand Cru
The Fompeyre Castle was built under the reign of Louis XIII.
Bought in 1780 by the British Williamson family, they turned the estate name into Guilhemanson to sound more French and get through the 1789 revolution.
Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellation has more restrictive rules than the generic Saint-Emilion (yield, ageing time, etc.) and is produced on the best areas of the appellation.
