Pomerol AOC



  • an appellation on the right bank of the Dordogne river in the Bordeaux region of southwestern France that grows mostly Merlot grapes and produces good-quality red wines that are a little softer and less tannic that the better-known wines of the Médoc AOC region of Bordeaux, which grows mostly Cabernet Sauvignon. The Pomerol area has never been classified, but its château Pétrus is widely recognised as being of premier cru status.
