one of the four municipalities outside the appellation Saint-Emilion
(Bordeaux) just north of the Barbanne river. These four may also add their names to the label, in this case Puisseguin-Saint-Émilion
. The vineyards cover around 750 hectares of vineyards, which are spread over the two municipalities of Puisseguin and Monbadon. 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 Bel-Air, Château Durand-Laplaigne, Château Fongaban, Château Guibeau La Fourvieille, Château des Laurets and Château Teyssier (also in Montagne).
