No, we did not forget a digit when typing up the price of this wine, a nine year-old Bordeaux straight from the cellar of an organic vigneron in the heart of the Right Bank. The magic of so–called “satellite appellations,” as we refer to Lussac in relation to neighboring Saint-Émilion, is that there is more variation in terroir within each AOC than between the two. A great Lussac can therefore outperform an average Saint-Émilion, but its price will never come close.

Bellevue sits on a plateau of pure chalk, which gives the wine a flavor as site specific as can be. It manifests itself in its appetizing acidity, stony tannins, and lively fresh fruit that make this Lussac delicious now and for many years to come. –Anthony Lynch
