Winemaker's Background: Chateau Lyonnat, the largest estate in the Lussac Saint-Emilion appellation, boasts a rich history dating back to the Cistercian Abbey of Faize. The estate, originally known as Léonat, has been meticulously cultivated by the Milhade family since 1961. Spanning 50 hectares, the vineyard benefits from diverse soils, including limestone and clay-limestone, and a unique microclimate. The traditional concrete vats used in vinification reflect the estate’s dedication to preserving winemaking heritage while producing wines of exceptional quality.

Serving Suggestions: This 2016 Chateau Lyonnat Red Blend is best enjoyed at a temperature of 60-65°F (15-18°C). It pairs exquisitely with a range of dishes, including roasted lamb, grilled steaks, and rich stews. For a more casual setting, consider serving it alongside a charcuterie board with an assortment of aged cheeses. Decanting the wine for about an hour before serving will enhance its complex flavors and aromas, ensuring a delightful experience for all connoisseurs.

Indulge in the legacy and craftsmanship of Chateau Lyonnat with every sip, and let this exquisite blend transport you to the heart of Bordeaux’s storied vineyards.
