Château Lassègue Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

Château Lassegue

CHÂTEAU LASSÈGUE: VOLUPTY

The sundials which adorn the facade of Château Lassègue bear witness to the exceptional sunshine enjoyed by the vines of this sumptuous 18th century property; they are the ones who embody the image of our wines. Lassègue is all the voluptuousness of Saint-Émilion wines. Planted on clay and limestone soils which provide fruit and minerality, the old vines benefit from a south/southwest exposure extending from the high slopes of Saint-Émilion. It is a wine that is both powerful and elegant, marked by the delicate aromas of Cabernet Franc, the concentration of old Merlot vines and a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon.

TASTING NOTES The Lassègue has a beautiful color. From the opening, the bouquet expresses remarkable freshness, then upon aeration evokes notes of nutmeg, white pepper and red fruits, all in a delicate and very airy harmony. In the mouth we find this very pleasant freshness and the tannins are already well melted. The ever-present expression of spices enriches the complexity which continues in a very beautiful balance. Endowed with a length full of energy and a vibrant finish, this wine also has a reserve of aromatic evolution.

2017 Château Lassègue Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

Le Lassegue 2017 affiche une robe pourpre grenat profond et un nez assez épicé laissant place à des notes de poivre noir, de cannelle et de clou de girofle sur un noyau de crème de cassis et de prunes confites avec une touche de terre poussiéreuse. La bouche est mi-corsée à corsée avec une trame ferme de tanins mâchus et des tonnes de couches de fruits noirs, une finale longue et épicée.
