LES CORDELIERS have been producing white, rosé, brut and medium dry sparkling wines in Saint-Emilion since 1892 according to the Méthode Traditionnelle in the underground cellars of the cloister of Les Cordeliers.
The cloister of Les Cordeliers, located in the heart of the Medieval town of Saint-Emilion (Gironde), is an architectural masterpiece dating from the 14th century. A listed Historical Monument and UNESCO World Heritage site, it is one of the most famous buildings in Saint-Emilion.
LES CORDELIERS sparkling wines are produced in the 3 km of tunnels 20 metres underground. Prepared from the most prestigious grape varieties in Bordeaux using the “Méthode Traditionelle”, also called the “champagne method”, LES CORDELIERS wines produce extremely fine bubbles with expressive fruit aromas, light and full of flavour.
