Chateau Lucas 2005

This is the type of wine I like to drink, not on special occasions, but as an everyday good quality wine, showing its terroir without a trip to the bank.  A blend of 80% merlot, and 20% cabernet sauvignon from a region outside of St Emilion, this wine had an aroma of rich ripe fruit and a palate with good length, tannins, a touch of leaf and sufficient fresh acidity.  Perhaps a bit rustic, but this is a lovely wine punching above its weight.  I suspect the ingredients are there for it to age for a few years yet as well.
