About the winery

Although at the outset the company was one man's brainchild, it is in fact a collective endeavour. Vignobles André Lurton is run by a young, dynamic team of highly-skilled managers. Each and every one is attentive, rational, discreet and modest (a sterling quality in an ego-driven environment!). Understandably, André Lurton favours them with his total confidence.

*** Good 
Producer tasting note
Robe : Intense red
Elegant nose, shows extremely classy smoky notes.
Explosive berry palate, with spice and licorice. Tannins well integrated though still a little austere, will mellow after a few more years. #good #afordable #elegant

Maturity : Keep in cellar(mature 2009  from  2015)
