AOC Lussac Saint-Emilion Red

This estate of 8 uninterrupted hectares, which has been owned for several decades now by Jean-François Carrille, is situated in the municipality of Lussac. The vines are planted on a mainly clay soil which yields generous, robust wines. The harvesting is done by hand to preserve the great aromatic potential of the grapes.

    TASTING NOTES

    Beautiful, sustained ruby red. The fruity nose is somewhat restrained but opens when aerated to reveal elegant aromas of red fruit and spices with a hint of toastiness. The front-of-palate with its smooth, creamy tannins is counterbalanced by fine length and discreet, refined oak. A very feminine wine made with beautifully ripe Merlot.

    TASTING NOTES

    A beautiful, sustained garnet red, displaying jammy, sappy notes in a pleasingly elegant bouquet alongside the red berries so typical of this growth. The palate is distinctive, full of finesse and creamy extract with a well-balanced, moderately tannic base. The same great aromatic generosity is present in the lingering finish. A worthy successor to a long line of great wines, the Merlot expressing its full potential in this exceptional terroir, vinified with passionate dedication by Jean François Carrille.

    AGEING
