A very classy Claret nose leads on to a ripe, flavoursome Merlot palate, smooth with a surprisingly long finish for a wine at this level.
Lussac is a village to the North West of Saint Emilion, granted appellation status in 1936. Predominately Merlot vines averaging 25 years of age grown on gravelly / clay soil. Grapes are carefully harvested before being destemmed and crushed and transferred to a temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Fermentation last around 10-15 days, with 7 days maceration.
Fantastic with a classic Sunday roast and also good with lamb dishes.
