2011 CHÂTEAU LASSÈGUE SAINT-EMILION GRAND CRU
If you’ve ever wondered what makes Bordeaux wines so appealing, one sip of Château Lassègue Grand Cru from Saint Emilion will provide you a definitive answer. Wines from Bordeaux are often more complex, and due to geological age, dry farming and climate as well as other factors, their roots are often forced deep into the earth, taking on more layers of flavors and in turn, some believe they can better reflect the terroir. This stunning representation of a Grand Cru Saint-Emilion was created by legendary winemaker Pierre Seillan, who’s responsible for an numerous perfect 100 point wines at Verité. Pierre’s talent has no boundaries, and this wine had our entire panel in awe.
Created from half-century old vines, and revealing textbook Saint Emilion crushed red fruits, currants and many of the complex nuances that we love in Bordeaux, the 2011 is simply stunning. The Chateau was constructed in the 1600’s and is adorned with beautiful sundials that are the basis of the label, however, the modern era of the winery began recently when it was purchased by Jess Jackson in 2003. The wines of Château Lassègue are clearly on a positive trajectory and this is one journey that you don’t want to miss.

Winery Notes: "...notes of ripe blackberries and a lifted intricate aromatic bouquet of fresh violet, sage and mint. On display are classic Bordeaux aromas of leather, baking spices and graphite. A polished wine, it yet possesses a wild, herbal quality, almost a garrigue. It is reminiscent of herbs grown on the side of rocks, and a forest floor just after rain. Grown in limestone soils, the Cabernet Franc elevates the blend with surprising, soft notes of rose petals and wild strawberries. From the Merlot comes the expansive texture and rich but subtle mineral overtones, invoking the sandy clay soils in which the varietal achieves its most refined expression. There is a velvety softness to the wine, the silky tannins move in crescendo towards a pressingly long finish. The wine will age magnificently for decades to come."
