one of the four communities outside the appellation Saint-Emilion
(Bordeaux) just north of the river Barbanne. These four may also give their name on the label, in this case Puisseguin-Saint-Émilion
. The vineyards cover about 750 hectares, spread over the two communities Puisseguin and Monbadon. The red wines are dominantly blended from Merlot, as well as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Pressac (Cot) and are similar to those from Saint-Émilion. The best known wineries are Château Bel-Air, Château Durand-Laplaigne, Château Fongaban, Château Guibeau La Fourvieille, Château des Laurets and Château Teyssier (also in Montagne).
