UDP Saint-Emilion

Union de Producteurs de Saint-Émilion is a cooperative wine group in Bordeaux producing a range of red wines. These are based mainly on the Merlot grape, which is sourced from 750 hectares (1850 acres) of Saint-Émilion and Saint-Émilion Grand Cru vineyards. The cooperative was founded in 1931 during a period of economic depression. The main instigator was Robert Villepigue, who had managed Château Figeac from 1905-1928, and who later owned Château Cadet...

Type of Grape
Bordeaux Blend Red

A Bordeaux Blend, at its most basic, is any combination of those grape varieties typically used to make the red wines of Bordeaux.

Far from being an officially defined or legal term, it is almost never used for wine-labeling purposes...

The region
Bordeaux

Bordeaux Supérieur is an appellation of wines produced in the generic PDO Bordeaux area that are produced from classic Bordeaux grape varieties. Red wines are, as their name suggests, intended to be a slightly "superior" form of standard Bordeaux AOC wines. Therefore, it relies heavily on Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, with smaller amounts of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. A few wines could present the "lost child" of Bordeaux, Carménère.
