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

70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Dark black/purple with a warm ruby rim. Nose of vanilla, new oak and alcohol.

Medium ruby-red. Red and darker fruits, coffee, smoked meat and nutty oak on the nose. Fat, broad and soft; unusually plush and full for this wine. The flavors of redcurrant, mocha and smoked meat are perked up by intriguing pepper and spice notes. Finishes with ripe tannins and very good length. A big success for this property.
