Saint Emilion Grand Cru


In 2007 Boston businessman Philip Edmundson partnered with Frenchman Eric Remus to buy the 5.8 hectares of Saint Emilion Grand Cru that they baptized Chateau Edmus (a combination of their two names). Edmundson and Remus aim to restore the vineyard, once owned by the Lur Saluces family, to its former glory. Aided by oenologist Stephane Derononcourt their wines have already gained serious plaudits in France (Hachette gave the 2010 a Coup de Coeur).

A sloping single vineyard with 30-40 year old vines it has mixed gravel and sandy soils, and a history of producing some of the finest Saint Emilion.
