Tasting Notes

Bright clear garnet coloured. The red fruit dominate the initial aromas but then subtle toasty cocoa and vanilla notes emerge. On the palate more raspberry fruit notes are evident with a pleasing attack leading to a balance of tannins, roundness and smooth appeal with good length to the satisfying finish lingering with the soft red fruit notes.

Producer details

This is the jewel of seventh generation winemaker Jean-Louis Trocard’s wine portfolio. The vines total 6.50 hectares and grow on flinty clay based soils that give the wine fine structure and tannins, which allow great ageing potential. 14 months in barrels 30% new oak.

In the vineyard

Lussac-Saint-Emilion is located on the right bank of the Garonne and Dordogne rivers about 45 kilometres from the city of Bordeaux and 9KM from the medieval village of Saint=Emilion. The terroir of Lussac is characterised by the diversity of its soils. To the south-east the slopes are clayey-limestone, similar to those in the Saint=Emilion region. To the west there is an elevated gravel and sandy-gravel plateau and to the north cold clayey soil and heavy clay are pre-dominant. To the east the subsoil consists of limestone beds and it is this diverse terroir that goes to making this wonderful wine
