- RobertR - 2009 was an exceptional vintage and this is proof of that!
(Posted on 3/19/2015)The nose reveals complex perfume of black fruit, violet, menthol and liquorice. After a soft and fruity attack, the fleshy mouth reveals coated tannins and finishes on a finely roasted note. A wine ready to enjoy now or cellar for years to come.
Château de Lussac was founded in 1876 and has been the property of Mme G Laviale-Van Malderen and her husband Hervé since the 2000 vintage. The vineyard, like the winemaking equipment has been refurbished. And today Chateau de Lussac produces some of the best wines in the Saint Emilion region, on a terrain of clay and loam. The 3 colours live side by side: a rosé, Cabernet Franc and Merlot; a great wine with 80 % Merlot and 20 % Cabernet Franc; a second wind with a Merlot base, Le Libertin de Lussac and a white wine, a blend of Sauvignons, white and grey and Sémillion.
