Luccianus Amphore Lussac Saint Emilion
Vignobles Lassagne
France - Bordeaux - Lussac Saint Emilion

Luccianus is the name of Gallo-Roman origin designating the town of Lussac and its vineyard dating from the 4th century. This 100% Cabernet Franc is produced from the estate oldest vines of 100 years of age and is a return to ancestral aging techniques. The amphora aging gives out a very expressive wine with a superb aromatic radiance and very silky tannins all without a woody note.

The wine shows a beautiful deep purple color. The nose is complex and rich with intense notes of fruits and spices. The palate is round and powerful with silky tannins.

 "Centenarian vine Cabernet Franc aged for a year in an amphora has yielded a well-structured wine. Dense tannins are no impediment to the wine's black fruits and spicy, open character. Rich and concentrated, the wine will age and be best from 2024. - ROGER VOSS"
