This is a small producer in Lussac Saint Emilion, one of the satellite appellations outside of the more famous Saint Emilion. Soils between the two are similar, with a mixture of limestone, clay, and sand.  The wines of Lussac usually over-deliver for their considerably lower prices than the wines from their big brother.  Husband and wife team Patricia and Phillipe Bonnin purchased the 9 hectare estate in 1997.  The vineyards are an average age of 25 years old.

Made with a blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine shows concentrated cherry and plum flavors, a hint of tobacco, vanilla, and clove.  The tannins are well-integrated on the finish, making this wine a wonderful candidate to accompany hearty stews, a veal chop with mushrooms, or roasted pork tenderloin.
