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.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
