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.

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.
