Château de Lussac 2016 – Lussac Saint-Émilion

The nose is fruity, elegant, racy and harmonious. It reveals notes of crushed cassis and small notes of crushed blackberry associated with small touches of blueberry, crushed strawberry as well as hints of violet, zan, cardamom, toasted hints and an imperceptible touch of vanilla. The palate is fruity, mineral, racy, elegant and offers a beautiful finesse of the grain, precision, minerality, a good guideline as well as a small tension. On the palate this wine expresses notes of black cherry, cassis and small notes of blackberry associated with small touches of crunchy / juicy red berries, violet as well as a very discreet touch of cornflowers and licorice / spices. There are hints of cardamom, flowers, blond tobacco and tonka bean on the persistence. Good length. Tannins are fine, elegant and structuring.
