Luccianus Cabernet Franc Amphore Lussac-Saint-Émilion AOC

Vignobles Lassagne gather several family properties that were bought since three generations and are grown according to tradition and innovation on unique terroir located in the Libourne area.
Vignobles Lassagne encompasses these three properties: Château des Arnauds (the original estate), Château des Landes and Château Maltus, the latest addition to the Vignobles Lassagne.

Luccianus is the name of Gallo-Roman origin designating the town of Lussac and its vineyard dating from the 4th century.
This cuvée is a return to ancestral ageing techniques. Uniquely composed of Cabernet Franc from old vines of 100 years with an ageing in amphora which gives a very expressive wine with a superb aromatic radiance and very silky tannins all without a woody note.
