Description

The nose is rich and complex with the aroma of roasted nuts and ripe dark fruits (plum/cherry) emerging into aromas of cedar, dried berries, pepper and black cherry. The palate is silky and round with a long and persistent finish. The 2006 is nicely mature with still plenty of vigour left in it, but feels like a lovely mature Claret

More Information

Chateau de Lussac Saint Emilion 

This is a real find: a 17 year old Claret from a good vintage at a bargain price. Chateau de Lussac is an impressive property of 77% Merlot and 23% Cabernet Franc. The 2006 is nicely mature with still plenty of vigour left in it, but feels like a lovely mature Claret. Notes of plums, cedar, sandalwood, with subtle background notes of undergrowth. 

The wine is aged in 50% new French oak barrels and 50% used French oak for around 16 months.

Château de Lussac is was founded in 1876 and has always been a family property. It was bought by Griet Van Malderen-Laviale and her husband, Hervé, in 2000. Ever since, they’ve completely renovated the vineyard and practice sustainable winemaking.
