Château du Courlat

Château du Courlat is in the satellite appellation of Lussac-Saint-Emilion and has been in the hands of Jean-Baptiste Audy for several decades. The company owns a number of properties on the right bank of Bordeaux, including Clos du Clocher in Pomerol, and is still run by Jean-Baptiste's descendants: firstly, his grandson Pierre Bourotte, and since 2003 his great-grandson Jean-Baptiste Bourotte. Du Courlat's 17 hectares of vines have an average age of 25 years and are planted on the slopes of Lussac with a large lake at their centre.

Tasting Notes

100% Merlot and aged for 20 months in one third new oak. Fresh, but very ripe plummy fruits give this wine a really sumptuous feel.

How about brasied lamb with giant white beans?
