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 2012 Lussac Saint Emilion is a fully mature Bordeaux and we have a small parcel. Blend 80% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot.
On the nose notes of warm red fruit and black cherry. The palate is well balanced, with plenty of fruit and enough structure to hold everything together in this medium weight wine. Blackcurrant, plum and cherry with a small note of oak in the background. Drinking really nicely.
