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

Wine Advocate (96+)

Deep garnet-purple colored, it opens with expressive black forest cake, preserved plums and blackberry pie notes with an undercurrent of mocha, grilled meats, sandalwood and cigar box plus a waft of lavender. Medium to full-bodied, rich and densely packed with opulent layers of spiced black fruit preserves and chocolate box notions, it has wonderfully plush yet firm tannins and a lovely suggestion of background acid, finishing long and fragrant.
