89pointsChâteau Michel de Vert 2003 Lussac Saint-Émilion

Best Buy

Lussac is one of the so-called satellites of Saint-Emilion (villages that attach the magic Saint-Emilion name to their own). But it does have many attractive wines that emulate Saint-Emilion in every way except the high price. This wine, a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, with a combination of dry austere blackcurrant fruit and sweet tannins, has that evocative cigar box, tobacco flavor that marks out a good Saint-Emilion. It finishes dry, tannic and demanding either decanting or a few years' aging, but also ready to drink with food this holiday season. Roger Voss
