Landes Grand Heritage Lussac Saint Emilion 2016

Landes Grand Heritage Lussac Saint Emilion is made from 100 percent Merlot.

First vintage of this wine was 2010 to pay tribute to the founding father of Chateau des Landes - Paul Lassagne. He gave the family a great legacy of terroir, passion and know-how to craft this great cuvee produced from a selection of the finest grapes that are vinified and aged in 600 liter French oak foudres, just like it was done in the old days. The resulting wine is complex and aromatic offering bold aromas and flavors of dark berries, floral tones, spice, oak and vanilla. The palate is onctuous and powerful, well structured with ripe tannins. Well balanced and a complex finish. 

Average age of the Vines: 60 years Yield : 50 hectoliters / hectare. Grape picking: harvest by machine. Vats: Stainless steel thermoregulated and computerized. Fermentation: 45 to 50 days with a final 35°C warm steeping. Winemaking: Malolactic fermentation in new oak barrel. Ageing: 16 months in new French Oak barrels from Allier and Limousin. Annual production: 10,000 bottles. (833 cases)

Review:

"The flagship cuvée is the 2016 Chateau des Landes Grand Heritage, which is all Merlot from older vines that spent 16 months in new oak. It’s more backward and tight at the moment, yet has classic black fruits, charcoal, and graphite notes, with plenty of oak. I like its mid-palate, and it’s nicely concentrated, yet the cellar will be your friend on this one. Give bottles 2-4 years and it should keep for more than a decade."
