By MARGARET NESS SAINT-EMILION, France (CP) Even the French have to acknowledge that an English king was responsible for a smart move in the French wine industry. In a charter in 11S9, King John created the little town of Saint-Emilion into a district to be administered by an elected jurade or council for the pur- pose of control over the local wine production. However King John wasn't meddling in something that wasn't his business. Saint-Em- ilion was part of the Duchy of Aquitaine. John was the Duke of Aquitaine by virtue of in- heritance. His mother, Elea- r.cr of Aquitaine, brought the duchy with her when she mar- ried Henry II of England. Saint-Emilion is a delightful medieval town built on a hill, with narrow streets, ancient ramparts, the oldest subterra- nean church in Europe, clois- ters and acres of surrounding vineyards. There are some 85 individ- ual wine growers who bottle and sell their wine under the Saint-Emilion seal and the controlled classification. The four classifications are Pre- mier Grand Cru class, Grand Cru. all preceded by Saint- Emilion, with the fourth and least expensive called just Saint-Emilion. PRIME AREA FOR WINE Saint-Emilion is only a short drive from Bordeaux, the centre of is considered France's best wine-growing area. It includes Saint-Emi- lion and the districts of Medoc, Pomcrol, Entre-Deux Mers (Between Tv.o Seas) and Cotes de Blaye, all well- known names to wine drink- ers. This Bordeaux area produces some 500 million bottles of wine a year. Each wine has its own par- ticular quality. Medoc is per- haps the best known. Its ruby red wine is said to have a "delicate nobility." Robust is the word applied to the Saint- Emilion vintage. The red wine of the Pomerol is considered to be "round, full-bodied and elegant." The Cotes de Balye and neighboring regions pro- duce red wines that are "sup- ple and well balanced" and also some good white wine. The Romans discovered the area and its wines became a favorite with the F.oman em- perors just as, in the 18th cen- tury, it was the fashionable wine for the French courtiers at their panics. Today the quality of the wines of all the areas is con- trolled. But it was King Jclin who created that first jurade with authority to regulate tho yield, arrange the transporta- tion and the storing of the wine. But even more impor- tant, the jurada determined the date for the harvesting. SET HARVEST DATE Inspectors rode on horses on inspection tours through the vineyards, calculated the sunny days still needed and then proclaimed the harvest date. This not only ensured the best quality but prevented vineyard owners from steal- ing a march on each other by harvesting too early to be the first to market. Today the vineyards are still inspected and the harvest date is still proclaimed on a Sunday about the third week of September. This is the New Wine Festival in Saint-Emi- lion. Members of the jurade attend mass, dressed in their splendid scarlet robes, have lunch together and then go to the underground church where new members are re- ceived. Tcday there are sev- eral thousand honorary mem- bers of the Tour de Roi, the harvest is proclaimed and blessed. It's a colorful sight and draws many tourists. In the spring, about May 15, there's another festival when the first tiny flowers appear in the vineyards. THE FINEST RETIREMENT AND RECREATIONAL COMMUNITY Blind Boy. 8 C..
