The vineyards of Domaine Serisier are situated in the Canton de Fronsac which is a marvellous landscape of plateaux and slopes overlooking the Dordogne River.
The complex soils are mainly limestone on the plateaux, clay-limestone on the slopes and clay and siliceous at the foot of the hills all of which give the wines their richness and complexity. The Fronsadais region and its exceptional clay-limestone terroir gave the soil its own name, the “molasse du fronsadais,” which is the pride of many great appellations including the neighbouring ones of the St Emilion region.
The temperate oceanic climate, characteristic with regard to the rest of the Bordeaux region, promotes slow maturing fruit thanks to long and hot summers, warm autumns and mild winters. Professor Henri ENJALBERT, a well known geographer, considered this terroir “the historical cradle of the great Bordeaux and Libourne wines”€ť and called it the “sacred hills of the region.”
