AOC Lussac Saint-Emilion Red
The quality of the terroir and the desire to create a wine in which the fruit remains intact is displayed in this wine. Sumptuous, crimson hue with deep purple tints which inspires confidence from the start. The bouquet, still in the first flush of youth, expresses an array of red fruits - blackcurrant, redcurrant and cherry - with remarkable freshness. On the palate, the silky, supple and beautifully smooth tannins from the Merlot supply instant seductive charm.
To drink from 2016.
A product of one of the most exceptional Bordeaux vintages, this wine has a sombre colour with tints of dark purple. The expressive nose offers a large range of red fruit aromas. The taste is marked with that of ripe Merlot, with rich and well-structured tannins. A very fine wine with all the typical characteristics of this terroir where Merlot Noir thrives.
To drink from 2017.
A superb, brilliant ruby hue, with deep garnet tints. Generous bouquet, a marriage of spices with red-berried fruit and cherry. Balanced at the attack, the palate is underpinned by velvety tannins and chewy extract that evolves right to the finish, the aromatic back-of-palate redolent of blackcurrant and blackberry. A wine of elegance and finesse typical of this terroir where Merlot Noir thrives.
An elegant wine from this prestigious terroir which is well worth drinking from 2018, but can be cellared for several years.
