Lassègue Saint-Émilion Grand Cru
The 2019 vintage of Lassègue is characterized by its freshness and purity. The wine shows a beautiful ruby color in the glass, limpid and brilliant. The nose is aromatic and precise, with red fruit that wafts from the glass at first aeration, followed by subtle notes of rose petal and licorice. The palate displays remarkable freshness, elegance and finesse. The attack is dense with a core of ripe red fruit, and
a rich and precise mid-palate leading to a prolonged finish carried by seamlessly integrated silky tannins. The power, balance and minerality of this vintage reflect the complexity of the clay and limestone soils of the Côte de Saint-Émilion. A great vintage that will reach its peak in 15-20 years.
