- RobertR - Exceptional Vintage Bordeaux ready to drink now.
(Posted on 10/9/2013)This vintage French Bordeaux I tasted at Chateau de Lussac while having dinner with the owners and found it to be an incredible value and very high quality wine. It has complex aromas of black fruit, violet, menthol and liquorice with a soft and fruity taste, smooth tannins with a finely roasted finish. This wine is ready to drink now and goes well with most French foods, grilled meats, teppanyaki, yakiniku and steaks.
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.
