2010 Chateau de Lescours “Lounge Vie”
3L $199.98*, 1.5L $99.98*
The Sherlocks Family is pleased to welcome a very special wine made by our very good friend Pierre Chariol at Chateau de Lescours. “Longue Vie,” meaning Long Life, is a wine that lives up to its name. Not only is it a 2010 vintage, an astounding vintage, but this wine was specifically made in the old way of making Saint Emilion wines. Pierre was influenced by the 2010 vintage to make this wine as his father made wine and his father before him. Structure, elegance, and terrior are at the core of this wine.
Sherlocks Notes: Deep ruby in color followed by enticing aromas of ripe black cherries, mulberries, plums, violets, tea leaf and gravelly earth. Robust yet supple on the palate with wonderful harmony and balance. The tannins are firm but round allowing for a drinkable wine now with decanting but allowing for a very age worthy wine. A classic Saint Emilion style with emphasis on terrior and balance as opposed to flamboyance, power and new oak. The finish is long and graceful leaving a lingering unmistakable Right Bank minerality.
