Château de Lussac 2008 – Lussac Saint-Emilion

The nose is elegant, slightly powerful and offers intensity. It reveals notes of Boysenberries, fleshy Gariguette strawberry and small notes of cassis / blueberry combined with a touch of red fruits as well as small hints of Cuben / white pepper, cornflowers, Bourbon vanilla and spices / truffle. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, gourmand and offers a slight unctuosity / juiciness, a slight freshness, precision, straightness, structure, a mineral frame as well as a beautiful elegance. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, cassis and small notes of small wild red fruits associated with small touches of black cherry, tonka bean and truffle / spices. Tannins are well-built. Good length.
