Estate
Wine has been produced at Chateau Lyonnat for centuries. From generation to generation, the techniques used by the resident viticultural team have been refined to maximize the terroir.

Vineyard
The vineyard is blessed with a southern exposure and a soil rich in limestone. Other factors that contribute to the quality of the vineyard include several parcels of very old vines, yield reduction techniques such as severe winter pruning, green harvesting in the summer and hand harvesting for much of the vineyard.

Description
The Milhade family has been landowners in Bordeaux for three generations and currently own six properties in the right bank regions of Saint-Emilion, Lussac-Saint-Emilion, Lalande-de-Pomerol, and Bordeaux Superieur. Their wines represent both amazing value in Bordeaux and the beautiful results that can be achieved by small family estates focused on producing high quality wines. The wines are marked by wonderful, expressive fruit and retain an authenticity and soulfulness.

Vinification
Chateau Lyonnat's Emotion is made up of 100% Merlot. The grapes are sourced from a 25 acre plot of very old vines that are grown on a limestone-clay soil. All grapes are manually harvested and undergo a rigorous selection and sorting process. Aged in 100% new French oak barrels. Hubert de Bouard of Chateau Angelus acts as a consultant.
