The vines of Chateau de Lisse lie on the eastern hillsides of St. Emilion and get a full southern exposure. In a legendary vintage like 2005 these hills received the sun's bounty like never before, maturing intensely expressive and flavor-filled grapes. Vines are densely planted and the Chateau works judiciously to keep yields to a minimum (less than 3 tons per acre), so the grapes are concentrated and rich. Then each harvested lot undergoes a careful triage to insure that quality is at a peak. The finished wines were aged 14 months in French oak barrels before the final blend of 85% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon was made. This Bordeaux shows wonderful ripe flavors of blackberry and boysenberry along with subtle toast and mineral splashes. Tannins are ripe but tame so it drinks gorgeously right now but it's clear that with cellaring for 5-8 years it will provide a rewarding experience.
