Roc de Lussac Lussac Saint-Emilion 2010

Member Review by duncan 906:

I got given this bottle of wine a while ago but have only now got around to drinking it.It is from the Lussac Saint-Emilion Appellation,one of the four 'satellite' appellations around Saint Emilion itself on the right or eastern bank of the river Dordogne about 25 miles east of the city of Bordeaux.It is made by Producta Vignobles,a co-operative representing over 2,500 growers over several appellations.The label states that it is a blend of merlot and both cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc but I have been unable to find out in what proportions although I would expect merlot to be the dominant grape.I drank my bottle last night as an accompaniment to my supper of lamb chops.I thought that there was plenty of a blackcurrant and plum type fruit there but that it was still a little tannic.Perhaps it would improve with another couple of years of bottle age.Overall I would say this is an OK wine but not one to get excited about.
