Chateau Lassegue 2019, a testament to the elegance and opulence that Saint-Émilion can offer, is a wine that captures the essence of its illustrious terroir. Under the watchful expertise of winemaker Nicolas Seillan, and the seasoned guidance of a consulting winemaker, this grand cru emerges from the picturesque vineyards of Chateau Lassegue, where the 18th-century chateau is graced with ornate sundials, symbolizing the perfect sun exposure that blesses their vines.
This Lassegue wine is a harmonious blend of 58% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged in 50 to 60% new oak, varying with the vintage, which contributes to its complexity and character. The Chateau Lassegue Bordeaux blend showcases the rich, aromatic Cabernet Franc and the dense concentration of old vine Merlot, seasoned with a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon, resulting in a wine that is powerful yet elegant.
The 2019 Chateau Lassegue Bordeaux offers a beautiful ruby color, limpid and brilliant in the glass. Aromatic and precise on the nose, it unfolds with red fruit aromas, complemented by subtle hints of rose petal and licorice. On the palate, this Lassegue Grand Cru delights with remarkable freshness, elegance, and finesse. The attack is dense, revealing a core of ripe red fruit, leading to a rich and precise mid-palate and a prolonged finish, all carried by seamlessly integrated silky tannins.
The Chateau Lassegue St Emilion Grand Cru reflects the power, balance, and minerality indicative of the complex clay and limestone soils of the Cote de Saint-Émilion. It is a great vintage that promises to reach its peak in 15-20 years, embodying the nuanced expression of its terroir and the know-how passed down through generations.
Critical acclaim for this vintage underscores its distinction. James Suckling awarded it 96 points for its refined character, noting its currant, crushed stone, limestone, and fresh mushroom notes, complemented by fine tannins and a minerally finish. Decanter, with a 94-point rating, praised its rich plum color, brambly blue and red fruits, and layers of fine tannins, highlighting its energy and potential for aging. Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate gave it 92 points, admiring its lively profile, deep flavors, and elegant restraint.
In sum, the 2019 Chateau Lassegue Grand Cru is a stellar representation of Saint-Émilion’s grandeur. With each sip, it offers a journey through the rich tapestry of its terroir, marked by the signature elegance and power of Chateau Lassegue’s Bordeaux blend. This wine not only stands as a beacon of the winemaking prowess at Chateau Lassegue but also as a symbol of the timeless beauty that is Chateau Lassegue St Emilion Grand Cru.

Who owns Chateau Lassegue?

The ownership of the vineyards traces back to 2003, when they were acquired by the renowned Californian vintner, Jess Jackson, from the Freylon family.

Critical Acclaim

WA 92
Wine Advocate
The 2019 Lassegue unwinds in the glass with aromas plums, wild berries, pencil shavings and dark chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, deep and lively, with powdery tannins, bright acids and a rather understated, elegant profile for an estate that can often deliver rather dramatic wines, this will reward a little patience.
DEC 94
Decanter
Rich plum in colour, this grips right from the off, and moves slowly and carefully through the palate, revealing brambly blue and red fruits, and a lovely sense of energy and uplift. Extremely good quality, with sage and saffron edges alongside layers of fine tannins that close in towards the finish, slowing things down even more. This will age well, and is an elegant yet concentrated wine.
JS 96
James Suckling
This is so fine and refined with currant, crushed stone, lime stone and fresh mushroom. It’s medium-bodied with fine tannins that run the length of the wine. Minerally finish. Tight and racy. Drink after 2025, but already beautiful.
