2018 Graves "Cuvée Berengere" (Lusseau, Chateau)

Lusseau, Graves, "Cuvée Berengere," Bordeaux, France, 2018

{organic} 65% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon


Just 7 hectares of gravely, clay soil vineyards, this estate is tiny and part of the family since the 1800s. High density plantings and short pruning concentrate and focus the flavors in the wine. Final hand-harvesting ensures quality in the bottle. Berengere is the young woman winemaker creating a revolution at the estate and turning heads by bringing her feminine touch to a male dominated region. This Graves shows baked blackberry fruit, with toasted bread crust, vanilla spice and currants all through the finish.

Serving Suggestion: Grilled flank steak marinated in cilantro, garlic and chili flakes. This is a meat lover's red Bordeaux.
