Tasting Comment

Appareance

This 2011 is well worth seeking out. It has a brilliant vermilion, very luminous colour.

Nose

It has a lovely, very appetising red fruit bouquet (strawberry and cherry).

Mouth

The wine is round, but solid and shows very ripe fruit on the palate. A smoky nuance, characteristic of our range of Lussac St. Emilion wines, contributes to an elegant aftertaste making this beautiful wine a treat with grilled poultry or filet mignon of pork.
