Chateau de Lussac Le Blanc 2019

Tasting Notes: Not your typical Sauvingnon Blanc. This wine has an Old World air about it with deep rich color, tones of oak and tannis commonly found in red wines. Very nice Bordeaux style Sauvingnon Blanc. Great with seafood, chicken, or other light foods. Ageing Ageing on lees with 50% new French oak barrel during 9 months. Vinification Manual harvest with crates. Direct pressing with full grapes. Debourbage. Alcoholic fermentation in barrel (50% new barrels) during 7-8 days.
