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 2006 is a lovely mature Bordeaux. It has up front dark berry fruit on the nose with a floral note, that then tapers off to a lovely, toasty, semi-dried berry palate, hints of liquorice, forest floor and a lovely gentle tannin.
