Appellation: Lussac Saint Emilion
Grapes Varieties: 90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc
The Vieux Château des Rocs is a family-owned and operated petite Chateau ran by 4th generation winemaker, Guillaume Seize. Located on the clay-limestone slopes in the heart of the Lussac Saint Emilion appellation, its name originates from the limestone bedrock blanketing the area.
Tasting: The wines of Lussac-Saint-Emilion express greedy and intense aromas, with notes of red fruits (strawberry, raspberry, cherry), supported by accents of licorice, leather, prune or spices. As they age, they develop tertiary aromas, including game. In the mouth, they are elegant and structured, velvety, and generous, with power and complexity.
