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.

Critical Acclaim

"The regisseur of the Gerard Perse properties has his own operation, Lusseau. It is a classic St.-Emilion revealing a touch of toasty oak interwoven with beautiful notes of black cherry liqueur, roasted herbs, lavender, and licorice. The aromatics are followed by an opulent, fleshy wine possessing admirable purity and loads of fruit. Drink this lovely 2005 during its first decade of life. "
