Item no. 104106
A small vineyard cropped at 22 hectoliters per hectare has fashioned a blend of 80% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. As usual, the 2007 Clos Les Lunelles is the most concentrated and biggest wine from the Cotes de Castillon. Its dense purple color is accompanied by notes of creamy oak, blackberries, cassis, licorice, incense, and charcoal. Full-bodied, powerful, and rich, it should drink nicely for 10 years.
Good deep red-ruby. Aromas of blackberry, griotte cherry, bitter chocolate and animal fur, lifted by a violet note. Suave, sweet and nicely fruity, combining good ripeness and good lift. Finishes with supple tannins. From argilo-calcaire soil on the Cotes de Castillon plateau, which Gerard Perse describes as similar to the soil at Pavie.
