Château de Lussac Rosé 2012

Château de Lussac was founded in 1876 and has been the property of Mme G Laviale-Van Malderen and her husband Hervé since the 2000 vintage.
The vineyard, like the winemaking equipment has been refurbished. And today Chateau de Lussac produces some of the best wines in the Saint Emilion region, on a terrain of clay and loam. The 3 colours live side by side: a rosé, Cabernet Franc and Merlot; a great wine with 80 % Merlot and 20 % Cabernet Franc; a second wind with a Merlot base, Le Libertin de Lussac and a white wine, a blend of Sauvignons, white and grey and Sémillion.
