Chateau du Courlat Lussac-St. Emilion
A cepage of 90% merlot and 10% cabernet franc, the 2015 Ch. du Courlat Lussac-St. Emilion is a frank, supple wine with an blossoming nose of plums intertwined with discreet vanilla and toasty oak notes. On the palate, the wine is round with a silky, fresh texture, beautiful aromas of candied plums and black fruit, laced with spicy notes of cedar and a long finish. Aged in 25% French oak barrels and cement vats. DECANTER considers Ch. du Courlat one of the ten best chateaux in the St. Emilion satellites.
