Chateau Lucat Bordeaux Rouge 2011

Chateau Lucat Bordeaux Rouge 750ml 2011   
Sku: 1833017*

Wine maker notes
The clay-limestone soils of Saint Loubes, a communein the Bordeaux appellation, are perfectly suited to the 30 year old Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc vines of Chateau Lucat. This 45 acre vineyard in the village of Capian, dating from the early 20th century, is currently tended to by Madame Christine Alice Pereira. With a tight supervision of vine density and yields, followed by a manual grape selection and sorting, she ensures that only the best grapes are picked and that any unwanted debris is removed. This careful attention to detail reveals itself in the final wine. Aged in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats to preserve freshness and maximize the fruit, Chateau Lucatís intense bright red appearance is a prelude to its proud aromas of fresh wild strawberries and ripe blackberries. This is the Merlot base of smooth fruit and roundness, which is then expertly held together with Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, each contributing to the well-balanced structure and smooth tannins. The strawberry flavors return in the long finish for a final, delightful salutation.
