Another tiny St.-Emilion operation (7.5 acres, with one parcel of Merlot planted in 1901), Lucia’s brilliantly executed 2005 boasts an inky/purple/blue color along with a sweet perfume of blueberries, blackberries, charcoal, incense, Asian spices, and hints of coffee and pain grille in the background. This full-bodied, powerful, layered St.-Emilion is filled with fruit extract, glycerin, and tannin. It displays a certain accessibility, but it will undoubtedly be at its finest in 4-10 years, and keep for 25. This is another sumptuous wine from consultant Stephane Derenoncourt
Good ruby-red. Dark cherry, smoke and spices on the perfumed nose. Full and lush, but with enough ripe acidity to perk up the chewy, intense flavors of dark cherry, licorice and melted chocolate. Firmly built and a bit youthfully medicinal, in need of a few years of patience and built to last.
