Château de Barbe Blanche Lussac-St.-Emilion 2009

External Review by WineExpress.com:

Chateau Barbe Blanche is an exceptional Right Bank Bordeaux property owned by the incomparable Andre Lurton. 68 acres planted with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon that have matured outstandingly to an average of 30 years of age. In 2009 everything came together and this wine expresses it beautifully. A blend of 65% Merlot, 25% Cab Franc and 10% Cab Sauvignon was aged 12 months in 50% new oak barrels. The Wine Spectator said "Raspberry, blackberry and currant flavors pump along, with toasty vanilla and spice notes filling in on the medium-weight, juicy finish. There's a nice tarry flash on the finish."

André Lurton:
A respect for the typicity of our terroir whilst at the same time always searching for a modernity of style. A respect for the past and the accumulated experience of the region but equally the same respect for our current consumers and their expectations in terms of wine style and quality. We firmly believe in developing technological innovations that allow us to move towards the twin goals of quality and price accessibility.
