AOC Lussac Saint-Emilion Red
The fruit of one of the greatest vintages in the Bordeaux region, Château Robin 2009 is a sumptuous deep red with ruby and deep purple tints. Still in the first flush of youth, the bouquet offers up a generous array of red fruits, blackcurrant, blackberry and cherry. The silky, supple tannins from the Merlot are discernible right from the succulent attack, with a smoothness that provides instantaneous charm. The beautifully fresh finish provides the perfect ending to a perfect tasting for this outstanding vintage!
To drink from 2011.
Superb colour, brooding and brilliant at the same time, with deep garnet tints. Generous bouquet in which spicy aromas are combined with overripe fruit (blackcurrant and plum). Opulent attack, the mid-palate underpinned by velvety tannins and fleshy extract that evolves right to finish, with blackcurrant and blackberry dominating the aromatic back-of-palate. A very fine wine with all the typical characteristics of this terroir where Merlot Noir thrives.
To drink from 2013.
This Château Robin is a beautiful deep garnet hue. The bouquet is intense and many-layered, with aromas of fruit and spices. Smooth, rounded attack, giving way to elegant tannins that impart fine length. A light, fruity wine, as suitable for a festive meal as for a drink with friends.
To drink from 2014.
A brilliant, sustained garnet hue. Generous bouquet of overripe fruit – cassis and other black berried fruits– highlighted by a hint of spice. The front-of-palate is smooth and elegant, revealing moderate tannins and crunchy extract imparting length and balance. Delicious return of fruit on the finish.
At its best from 2015.
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.
