Completely renovated since its purchase by Mr & Mrs Laviale at the beginning of the year 2000, Chateau de Lussac is a major property of its appellation. The utmost care and the finest management techniques are exercised in order to ensure quality, full bodied wines (77% Merlot & 23% Cabernet Franc), with good ageing potential. Vines are carefully pruned in Double Guyot, with thinning of the leaf canopy and green harvesting to limit yields and ensure quality. The vinification itself takes place in temperature-controlled vats followed by a lengthy ageing period in French oak.

The wine is aged in 50% new French oak barrels and 50% used French oak and receives around 16 months barrel ageing.

Bright colour, red with ruby highlights. First nose is rich and complex with the aroma of roasted nuts. After agitation, sweetness emerges and the aromas evolve towards spices (pepper) combined with black cherry. On the palate, the attack is silky and round and works with a balanced structure and a hint of black fruit. The finish is long and persistent.
