95% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
Gold Medal, Concours de Bordeaux 2013
Situated on the Right Bank of Bordeaux this wine is a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grown in the Saint Emilion commune of Lussac. With concentrated plum and black cherry fruit flavors and supple tannins this rich, full bodied and seamless wine makes the perfect accompaniment to roast beef, hearty stews or full flavoured cheeses.
Husband and wife team Patricia and Phillipe Bonnin purchased the 9 hectare estate in 1997. Lussac is in one of the best-known Saint-Emilion villages, located 6 miles north of the town, on the right bank of the Dordogne River. The scale of the operation enables Bonnin to be handcrafted from harvest to barrel-ageing. The vineyards are an average age of 20 years and are planted on chalk and clay soils.
