2010 Lussac Saint Émilion

Château de Bellevue

2010 Lussac Saint Émilion Château de Bellevue - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
Don’t miss this organic Bordeaux from the legendary 2010 vintage, back by popular demand. Bellevue occupies a special place in the mosaic of terroirs that make up the Bordelais: the vines (Merlot and a smattering of Cabernet Franc) sit atop a stratum of limestone that provides a backbone of fresh, firm, chalky tannins. As a result, this Lussac is savory and mineral-driven, with a dusty earthiness and iron-like sanguinity. It is a Merlot that will challenge even the most vehement Merlot haters—just picture Paul Giamatti in Sideways gulping it down animal style with his In-N-Out burger. –Anthony Lynch

About Bordeaux

Often considered the wine capital of the world, Bordeaux and its wines have captured the minds, hearts, and wallets of wine drinkers for centuries. For many, the wines provide an inalienable benchmark against which all other wines are measured.

Bordeaux is divided into three winegrowing regions with the city that gives the region its name in the near geographical center. The “right bank,” or the area located east of the Dordogne River, produces wines that are predominantly Merlot with small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The “left bank” is located to the west of the Garonne River and produces wines dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, with Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot.

The third region, Entre-Deux-Mers, lies between both rivers and produces white wines from Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, and Muscadelle. Though technically in the left bank, it is worth noting the appellation of Sauternes, which produces arguably the world’s most famous sweet wines from Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, and Muscadelle as well.

Though many top Bordeaux wines are sold en primeur (in advance of their bottling) and often through a middleman known as a negoçiant, Kermit has always preferred to purchase directly from the winemaker. For more than three decades he has sought out small producers, who make classic Bordeaux wines and are willing to play outside the negoçiant system. This ethic has led to longstanding relationships, excellent prices, and perhaps most important—wines of great value and longevity.

Trust the great winemakers, trust the great vineyards. Your wine merchant might even be trustworthy. In the long run, that vintage strip may be the least important guide to quality on your bottle of wine.—Kermit Lynch
