Description

Ornate sundials adorn the façade of Château Lassègue, a beautiful 18th century Château. This symbol of perfect sun exposure is the inspiration for our logo and represents the message of our wines.

Lassègue is Saint-Émilion at its most opulent. Old vines grow on the south/south-west hills which are the prolongation of the Côte de Pavie, and whose soils of clay and limestone add exquisite mineralitynto their fruit. Rich, aromatic cabernet franc married to the dense concentration of old vine merlot and seasoned with a touch of Cabernet  Sauvignon results in a wine that is at once powerful and elegant.

Grapes: 60% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon

Barrel Ageing: 15 months in French oak

Age of the vines:  40 to 50 years old

Tasting: 

An intense, ruby red color with layers of aromatics. Concentrated scents of dark fruit, spice, pine, and dried roses are supported by subtle notes of French oak, chocolate and ground coffee. The palate shows plenty of black fruit and spice with a core of elegant tannins balanced out by a firm acidity. The fruit and oak round out the texture and lead into an exceptionally long and balanced finish. This is a wine full of promise.
