Chateau Lassegue Saint Emilion
|France, Bordeaux, St. Emilion
The Lassègue 2018 shows a deep and intense color. The estate's terroir maximized the potential of this excellent vintage thanks to our 50+ year-old vines and the freshness from the limestone soils. On the nose, the richness of the Merlot is complemented by the extravagance of the Cabernet Franc, and after aeration the bouquet develops subtle notes of cassis and violet. The palate explodes with silky round red and black fruit, while the finish is dominated by black fruit with barely perceptible rounded tannins. The Lassègue 2018 is among the great vintages that are characterized by their freshness, complexity and power, a reflection of the estate's clay and limestone soils on the slopes. This is a vintage with an excellent potential for aging.
