Ginestet Classique Lussac-Saint-Émilion is an amazing value satellite St Emilion made by Maison Ginestet's head winemaker Guillaume Henimann. A very classy Claret nose leads on to a ripe, flavoursome Merlot palate, smooth with a surprisingly long finish for a wine at this level. It's a fantastic wine to pair with a classic Sunday roast and also good with lamb dishes.
