The 2020 Lucia is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, aging for 10 to 16 months in French oak, 30% new. The alcohol is 14.5%. Deep garnet-purple colored, it rolls out of the glass with ready-for-business notes of crushed black plums, fresh blackberries and black cherries, plus suggestions of menthol, powdered cinnamon and garrigue. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers ripe, generous black fruits with impressive freshness and a velvety texture, finishing long and fragrant.

The 2020 Lucia has a fragrant nose with vanillary new oak that is neatly assimilated into the black cherry and cranberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with quite noticeable acidity, graphite tinged black fruit, almost Left Bank in character with commendable persistence. This is a well-crafted modern-style Saint-Émilion. -vinous.com

James Suckling

This is a dense, focused red with lots of richness and structure, showing blackberry and sea salt with some leaves. It’s full-bodied, tight and structured at the end. Same level as the 2018.

Antonio Galloni

The 2020 Lucia is potent and brooding. Dark cherry, tobacco, licorice, cedar and dried flowers all build in the glass. The tannins are formidable today and need time to soften, but that should not be too much of an issue in a few years. Tasted two times.

Jeff Leve

Dark in color, you find chocolate mint, fruit cake, plums and cherries galore in the nose. On the palate the wine is round, lush, polished, sweet and fruity, with an opulently textured, chocolate and cappuccino drenched finish. 91-93

This estate continues to produce a ripe, modern, yet still classic Saint-Emilion, and their 2020 Château Lucia is a beauty. Ripe black raspberry and cassis fruits as well as floral, spice, and oak-laced notes define the bouquet, and it’s wonderfully pure, with textbook Saint-Emilion minerality and a great finish. It’s going to need short-term cellaring but will evolve for over two decades.
