Chateau de Bellevue Lussac St Emilion, Bordeaux, France, 2015


Tasting Notes: Chateau de Bellevue’s Lussac St Emillion is an organically grown Bordeaux blended from 95% Merlot and just 5% Cabernet Franc. This exceptional wine is ready to drink right away, but will age impressively if you can resist opening it immediately. It’s deeply flavored with aromatic raspberry and strawberry, finishing off with earthy limestone and soft tannins. Lussac Saint-Emilion will pair perfectly with a classic, simple grilled steak or chop dinner, but it will also play well with cheeses, pasta dishes, or low-and-slow braises.

About: Ch?teau de Bellevue is not your typical Bordeaux estate: it is small, family-run, and entirely organic?all rare in this vast and prestigious wine region. Covering just twelve hectares, Bellevue sits on a limestone plateau that gives its wines a particular go?t de terroir that sets it apart from others in the region. This blend of Merlot with a drop of Cabernet Franc is consistently firm, fresh, and chalky from year to year, a stark contrast with the opulent, velvety reds produced in Saint-?milion and even other parts of Lussac. This mineral backbone endows it with great aging potential, and yet the wine delights in its young years thanks to the pure, bright fruit and mouth-watering finale. Proprietor and vigneron Andr? Chatenoud has been known to serve his Lussac with duck breast grilled over vine cuttings, but any number of other simple, yet delicious pairings will work. In the summertime, don?t hesitate to give this red a slight chill if necessary.
