Old French Pine 15 Wine Bottle Storage Cabinet with “Saint-Emilion” Decor
This interesting wooden wine or champagne bottle holder was carved in France, circa 1920. The useful antique cabinet, made with old pine timber, has fifteen inside slots for wine or champagne bottles and has a hinged top for convenience. The piece is also decorated with the wine region “Saint-Emilion” printed on the front, which give the vintage piece an air of authenticity. This bar accessory is in excellent condition with a rich walnut patina, and would make a nice addition to a wet bar or wine cellar! Saint-Émilion is one of the principal red wine areas of Bordeaux along with the Médoc, Graves and Pomerol. The region is much smaller than the Médoc and adjoins Pomerol. As in Pomerol and the other appellations on the right bank of the Gironde, the primary grape varieties used are the Merlot and Cabernet Franc, with relatively small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon also being used by some châteaux. Saint Émilion wines were not included in the 1855 Bordeaux classification. The first formal classification in Saint-Émilion was made in 1955. Unlike the 1855 classification, it is regularly revised.
