one of the four municipalities outside the appellation Saint-Emilion
(Bordeaux) just north of the Barbanne river. These four may also use their name on the label, in this case Montagne-Saint-Émilion
. The vineyards cover around 1,600 hectares of vineyards, which are spread over the municipalities of Montagne, Parsac and also those of Saint-Georges (which may also use the name Montagne-Saint-Émilion). The red wines are predominantly blended from Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Pressac (Cot) and are similar to those from Saint-Émilion. The best known wineries are Château Calon, Château Faizeau, Château Maison-Blanche, Château Montaiguillon, Château Roudier
, Château Rocher Corbin, Château Teyssier and Château des Tours.
