Chateau Lyonnat St Emilion 2009
External Reviews for Chateau Lyonnat St Emilion
The 2009 Lyonnat from the satellite appellation of Lussac St.-Emilion is a blend of 85% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon. Notes of cedar wood roasted herbs loamy earth and soil undertones in addition to abundant black cherry and black currant fruit jump from the glass of this medium to full-bodied earthy style of wine that saturates the palate and should drink well for up to a decade. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
Still quite youthfully toasty, with cocoa powder and espresso holding sway over dark plum and macerated currant fruit. The rich finish has the cocoa edge still in control, but the depth is there for this to come together. Drink now through 2017. 2,50... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Lyonnat Emotion 750ml
