Nicolas and Alexandra Robin own and make the lovely wines at Château Laussac, Château Rol Valentin, St Émilion Grand Cru and Clos Taillefer, Pomerol. Château de Laussac has 28 hectares under vine and is farmed naturally and organically(unofficially). The Cuvée La Dame sees little oak while the Château de Laussac, 90% is barrel aged, 60% new oak , 30% one year old barrels. The encépagement is Merlot/ Cabernet Franc for both. Their plump, seductive Pomerol, Clos Vieux Taillefer comes from 40 year old vines and is mainly Merlot with a little Cabernet Franc.
An aromatic complexity combining a fine woody and an explosion of red fruits of blackberry and blackcurrant. Pretty purple dress, garnet, dark, shiny, clean. Frizzy nose, crunchy, fresh fruit.
