Super smooth, a bit spicy, very well-balanced.
Definitely a deep cherry flavor, and I think I also taste a hint of chocolate. Hot and a bit too tannic.
a little dark cherry, red berry fruit combined with a little leather and cedar, delicate notes to it as well. always love the 2005 vintage!
Plum and chocolate on the nose, and a very smooth finish. This is a great Bordeaux for the price.
This fruit-driven Bordeaux blend is earthy and slightly musky. Also detect some tobacco with brightness coming from berries and cherries. Slightly heavy, but smooth on the finish.

80% merlot and 20% cabernet franc from the 2-hectare, sandy, clay St. Emilion flats just under La Gaffeliere. Aged in 70% new oak. Cassis and mocha on the nose lead to a super plush mid-palate. This release is all about depth of fruit and richness in... Devon Magee. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Lusseau 750ml
Very ripe, with boysenberry and fig notes laced with spice and blueberry. Juicy and focused on the finish. All pleasure. Tasted non-blind. -J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Lusseau 750ml
Located near Monbousquet - Owned by the technical director from Pavie. Dark inky purple like so many Right Bank Merlot based wines and the 2005's and 2006's too - fuchsia edged rim. Modern wine from low-yields - new oak and sweet red fruits. Medium a... Andy Frieden. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2007 Lusseau 750ml
Bright red-ruby. Liqueur-like aromas of kirsch, roast coffee, mocha, tobacco and herbs. Fat, lush and forward, with enticing sweetness to its dark fruit, chocolate and roast coffee flavors. Plush and pliant for 2006, with a rare sweetness for the yea... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Lusseau 6000ml
Perhaps the most opulent, fruity, and sexy wine of the vintage (at least for drinking during its first decade of life), Gerard Perse�s regisseur owns and farms this 5-acre garagiste property in St.-Emilion. Meant for unabashed hedonists, the 2006 is a blend of 70% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. From modest yields of 33 hectoliters per hectare, this is a seriously packed and stacked, delicious, soft, opulent claret with loads of kirsch liqueur characteristics intermixed with roasted herbs, licorice, smoke, and a hint of new oak. It will drink well for a decade.
The regisseur of the Gerard Perse properties has his own operation, Lusseau. It is a classic St.-Emilion revealing a touch of toasty oak interwoven with beautiful notes of black cherry liqueur, roasted herbs, lavender, and licorice. The aromatics are followed by an opulent, fleshy wine possessing admirable purity and loads of fruit. Drink this lovely 2005 during its first decade of life. - Robert Parker 90 Points Plum and chocolate on the nose follow through to a medium to full body, with good fruit and tar character, medium tannins and a clean finish. Little disappointing. Best after 2010. 700 cases made. –JS - Wine Spectator Magazine 88 Points
70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Dark black/purple with a warm ruby rim. Nose of vanilla, new oak and alcohol. Very soft, sweet raspberry entry onto the palate with liqueur undertones and cedar. Very extracted wine and big tann... Mike Supple. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Lusseau 1500ml
