Chateau De Lussac is the flagship property of the St-Emilion satellite appellation Lussac-St-Emilion. Situated on a limestone plateau the property enjoys a similar terroir to the famous names of St-Emilion itself. The 2011 has rich bramble and damson fruit flavours with notes of graphite and cedar. Soft and velvety this wine is just entering its peak drinking period. This is a great match for cured meats and hard cheeses.
Château de Lussac was founded in 1876 and has been the property of Mme G Laviale-Van Malderen and her husband Hervé since the 2000 vintage. The vineyard, like the winemaking equipment has been refurbished. And today Chateau de Lussac produces some of the best wines in the Saint Emilion region, on a terrain of clay and loam.

The four Saint-Emilion satellites are Saint-Georges-Saint-Emilion, Montagne-Saint-Emilion, Lussac-Saint-Emilion and Puisseguin-Saint-Emilion itself – all located to the north of Saint-Emilion town. They are known as satellites because the area’s more prestigious wine estates historically resented these supposedly inferior wines using the Saint-Emilion name. In the middle of the 20th century, several boundaries were changed and the villages of Lussac, Montagne, Puisseguin and Saint-Georges were granted their own independent Saint-Emilion appellations.
