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.
This wine is complex with deep fruit and tobacco notes. it has medium to high tannin, but very smooth and well rounded tannin. first sniff is must and then a wet slate aroma as if it were pulled from a stream. this is not for the novice drinker. this is also not to decant unless you have the proper decanter for this type of wine.
So earthy, so tasty, I wish I didn't open it. Yes it's 50 bucks but it's a good buy for the quality. Good nose and tastes absolutely good with chocolate :)
