Château du Courlat
This property is situated in the satellite appellation of Lussac-Saint-Emilion and is owned by Jean-Baptiste Audy. The Château consists of 17 hectares of vines, averaging 25 years and are planted on the slopes of Lussac with a large lake at their centre. From the long driveway of Cyprus trees on your approach, this estate inspires peace and tranquility. Nature is present at every turn, with a large lake at the centre of vines, forest and château.
An outstanding wine, and deceptively powerful. Black/purple colour, almost Ribena-like nose, rich, lush, open and inviting - the palate and nose are defined by hints of port like warmth, spice, boiled jam and forest fruit. A stunning, voluptuous and intense wine with great length.
Fermented in stainless and cement vats, with manual pumping over. Aged in vats and fine-grained French oak barrels.
