Winemaker's Notes:

You will appreciate the subtle blending of typical grape varieties from Merlot (50%), to Cabernet Sauvignon (40%), accentuated by Cabernet Franc (5%) and Malbec (5%).

This high quality wine, aged in oak barrels for 12 to 14 months, will delight you by the harmony of its black fruit aromas and its subtle wood flavors.

You will love it either daily or for special occasions.

My Notes:

About Chateau Lusseau:

The day my daughter told me she wanted to run the vineyard, I was not really carried away. A woman evolving in this male-chauvinist environment…. It sounded like a great task. Doing her way, she forsook her lawyer position in order to get a diploma in viticulture at the Lycée agricole of Blanquefort. Eventually, she achieved her first vintage in 2000. After 6 years managing the property, she has been able to mix the exactness of her university background, the family passion for the good wine and her female intuition to turn the Château Lusseau into a great new name of the “Graves de Bordeaux"
