Wine AdvocateNot much wine is made from Mr. Lusseau's five-acre vineyard. He is also the regisseur of all Gerard Perse's properties, so there is no doubt he knows how to turn out exceptionally concentrated, rich, flavorful, and soulful wines. Here the alcohol hit 13.9%, and the blend is mostly Merlot (80%) and the rest Cabernet Franc. An opulent, in-your-face style of St.-Emilion, with a dense ruby/purple color, chewy, meaty flavors, and plenty of floral notes intermixed with blackberry, licorice, smoke, and fruit, this totally seamless, opulent, fleshy wine is a total hedonistic turn-on that should drink well for 10-15 years. (Tasted two times.)
