More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Haut-Lucas is a blend of 90% Merlot mainly present for its fruity taste, and 10% Cabernet Franc to reinforce the structure and balance of the wine.

An aromatic wine with a deep, crimson and purple colour based upon a fantastic balance and fruity tannins. Nice and fresh, with red fruit and slight herb flavours.

The 2005 vintage received 90 points from Cepage Noir - This wine has a saturated purple color that is followed by an intense, room filling aroma of black berry, cassis and sweet new oak nuances. The palate offers a full bodied personality, with copious amounts of intense black berry fruit that practically bury the wine's impressive tannins. This is a wine that will be best with a couple years in the cellar, drinking well and impressing even the most well-educated with this region's best for many years down the road.
