Lussac-Saint-Émilion: Château Milonblanc 2020

A delightful mid-weight Claret from Lussac-Saint-Émilion, an up-and-coming satellite appellation that delivers terrific value for money. The d'Anglade family of Libourne have been making wine for over 2 centuries, and their claret from Château Milonblanc is a step up from their ever-popular Bordeaux Superior Château d'Abzac.

Tasting Notes

From vines grown north-east of Saint-Emilion in the satellite appellation of Lussac-, it offers good value when compared to the grand vins of St-Emilion and is much more approachable on its youthful fruit. A blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon that sees some time in oak to soften the tannin, the barrel ageing also adds a touch of vanilla, chocolate and spice to the rich berry fruit.

A bouquet of bright red fruit with hints of balsam and sandalwood precedes a palate with a core of cassis flavours supported by fine-grained tannins offset by a fresh acidity. Already approachable if decanted it should mature well for 3 to 5 years. It is an ideal partner to beef or lamb.

Baron and Baroness d'Anglade

Owned by the d’Anglade Family for more than two centuries, Château d’Abzac is located 14km north of Libourne, close to the famous Saint-Émilion and Pomerol vineyards. It was built in the early 17th century and has not significantly changed over the years. Today it is classed as a Historic Monument and the Anglade family still resides in the Châteaux.

Baron and Baroness d'Anglade describe their wines as pleasant to drink the year following bottling, and reach their peak in the fifth year.
