The Story

The Lussac Saint-Emilion appellation is found to the north of the hill of Saint-Emilion. The first vineyard to be designated a World Heritage Site, the region is full of charm, with prestigious historic houses and Romanesque churches dominating its many hillsides. The vineyard is planted on hillsides, plateaux and at the foot of the slopes. The soil can be Périgord sand or clay-limestone, producing wines which can be enjoyed young as well as those designed for long ageing.

During its long and sometimes turbulent history, the defence of Bordeaux has been ensured by controlling access to the Gironde estuary. Throughout the Médoc, fortified turrets (or “tourelles”) were built to defend the region against invaders arriving by sea. The Pavillon la Tourelle range pays tribute to this heritage, with the distinctive turret logo on the label symbolizing the benevolence of the winemakers. And it flies the flag of quality for the different terroirs of Bordeaux that make it up.

Grape varieties : Merlot , Cabernet Sauvignon , Cabernet Franc .

Soil: Clay-limestone with stony sub-soils.

 

The winemaking

Traditional Bordeaux winemaking. Daily pumping over to extract tannins and colour. Maceration in tank for 15 to 20 days. Ageing: In tank. Bottling: At the property.

 

The professional tasting note

Deep, ruby red colour. Black fruits on the nose. Well-balanced on the palate, with fresh fruit flavours. A pleasing hint of spice on the finish. Clean style.

 

The service

Serve at: 17-18°C. Goes well with lamb cutlets grilled with rosemary, roast veal, or a cheese platter.
