Winemaker's Notes:

Number 85 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

A rich, opulent blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot with just a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon. The ornate sundials which adorn the facade of Lassègue, a beautiful 17th century Château, are symbols of the perfect sun exposure of their vineyard. Classic Bordeaux aromas and flavors of cassis, black chocolate, and cigar box create a very elegant and complex wine. From a warm, ripe vintage, it will age beautifully for 10+ years, although it's absolutely delicious right now.

About Chateau Lassegue:

Chateau Lassegue is located in Saint Emilion, on the right bank of Bordeaux, France. Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke have teamed up with Vigneron Winemaster Pierre Seillan to bring new life to this beautiful estate. With plantings of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, a long sun exposure, limestone soils and Pierre's philosophy of "Micro-cru", exceptional wines are made from this estate. Two Saint Emilion Grand Crus are produced at Château Lassègue: Lassègue and Château Vignot.
