Ornate sundials adorn the façade of Château Lassègue, a beautiful 18th-century château. This symbol of perfect sun exposure is the inspiration for our logo and represents the message of our wines.

Lassègue is Saint-Émilion at its most opulent. Its old vines grow on the south/southwest hills near the Côte de Saint-Émilion. Their 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. 

Notes and Reviews

Château Tasting

The large amount of very ripe Cabernet Sauvignon delivers fruit expression with good tannins. The Cabernet Franc brings a subtle freshness and fruit with notes of raspberry, red current, and cherry. The Merlot adds a deep colour, richness, and a round aspect with black cherry, cassis, and blackberry flavours.

This wine will age nicely for the next 25 years but can also be enjoyed within the next 5 years.
