Le Libertin de Lussac 2010
Tasting Notes: This wine has a beautiful dark red color with a mix of ultra ripe berry, plum, and dried fruit flavors. A touch of liquorice and toasted oak provide great balance and complexity that lingers on the palate. A deliciously approachable wine in its youth.

Le Libertin de Lussac is the second wine of Château de Lussac. Following the tradition of Bordeaux's right bank, this wine is primarily Merlot. The left bank of Bordeaux is primarily planted with Cabernet Sauvignon and typically the wines are as well. Blend: 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc. Château de Lussac was founded in 1876 and has been the property of Mme G Laviale-Van Malderen and her husband Hervé since the 2000 vintage. The vineyard, like the winemaking equipment has been refurbished. And today Chateau de Lussac produces some of the best wines in the Saint Emilion region, on a terrain of clay and loam. The 3 colours live side by side: a rosé, Cabernet Franc and Merlot; a great wine with 80 % Merlot and 20 % Cabernet Franc; a second wind with a Merlot base, Le Libertin de Lussac and a white wine, a blend of Sauvignons, white and grey and Sémillion.
