The Region: Lussac-St-Èmillion
Located on the right bank of Bordeaux, the region of Lussac-St-Èmillion marks where innovation meets tradition as winemakers make great efforts to push the stylistic boundaries of traditional Bordeaux Red wines. This small hillside sloping region in Bordeaux is home to small family-owned vineyards averaging 25 acres in size, producing Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec.
The 2012 Vintage
- “They are medium- to full-bodied, finely textured, expressive and have good length. There’s a sweet but fresh, fruity quality to the Merlot, so even the lighter wines have attractive early-drinking appeal.” - Steven Spurrier (speaking on the 2012 vintage)
- “…I found that 2012 produced riper wines than the previous vintage, with a darker core of fruit and more flesh, so I prefer 2012 to 2011.” – Ralph Sands, K&L Wines
