Chateau Lyonnat Lussac St. Emilion 2015 (France: Bordeaux) (ID# 3357)

Name Chateau Lyonnat Lussac St. Emilion 2015 (ID# 3357)
Varietal Red Blend
Region France: Bordeaux
Notes "Hubert de Bouärd has given this wine a velvey texture as well as rich wood and spice flavors. The wine is generous, full bodied and dense with black fruits. The blend, with 90% Merlot, comes from one of the largest vineyards in Lussac. Drink this rich wine from 2020." (Wine Enthusiast) "It offers loads of chalky minerality to go with classic Merlot dark fruits, dried earth, and graphite aromas and flavors. This medium to full-bodied beauty is terrific today, yet I suspect it will keep for 15+ years." (Jeb Dunnuck)

Additional Notes

"Orange-peel and floral aromas with a plum and berry character. Medium to full body, firm, silky tannins and a clean finish. Drink or hold." (James Suckling) "Highly perfumed and packed with fresh scents of bright black cherries, floral and freesia notes and a touch of mint and liquorice. This has high energy and exuberance to it – a really enjoyable and pungent Lussac." (Decanter Magazine)
