I bought four bottles of this wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/48654 for the price of £30. Lussac Saint-Emilion is one of the 'satelite Saint Emilion AOC's. Chateau Courlat is owned by Pierre Bourette who also owns Chateau Bonalgue in Pomerol and this is a special cuvee named in honour of his grandfather who originally planted the 4 hectares of old vines used.Unlike the rest of Chateau Courlat's production it is aged in oak barrels as well.It is 80% merlot,15% cabernet franc and 5% cabernet sauvignon.I opened my first bottle last night to accompany my supper of lamb shanks and I was seriously impressed.There is plenty of a blackcurrant and plum style fruit there and the tannins were soft.It is also very smooth and subtle.I have no hesitation in giving this top marks.I also think it was excellent value for money
