A nose bursting with crunchy red fruit, nutmeg and white pepper. Cabernet Franc lends spice and polish to the dense core of fruit on the palate, well-balanced with discrete tannins and an uplifting tension. A long and mineral finish reveals the clay and limestone terroir of Saint-Émilion. Stylish and food-friendly
Ornate sundials adorn the façade of Château Lassègue, a beautiful 18th century Château. This symbol of perfect sun exposure is the inspiration for the logo and represents the message of their wines. Lassègue is Saint-Emilion at its most opulent. Old vines grow on the south/southwest hills which are the prolongation of the Côte de Saint-Emilion, and whose soils of clay and limestone add exquisite minerality to 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.
