Belle Eleonore

 Lussac Saint-Émilion, Bordeaux

We were year into our import business before we decided to add Bordeaux wines to our portfolio. The market is competitive in Seattle, and I needed well-made, good value, small production wines. Belle Eleonore was one in a group of four Bordeaux wines that we brought in in 2012, and we’ve been very happy with it. Lussac is a great St. Emilion satellite, and this wine is a terrific value.

The story of Belle Eleonore
In 1952, Paul Lassagne, who ran an oven in the local tile factory, bought a small 2 hectare plot including a cellar. Today, his son Daniel has expanded the estate to 30 hectares, including 24 in a single block in Lussac Saint-Émilion. The winery has been entirely renovated, and the most up to date techniques are used to produce the finest possible wine.

Cheers,
