“A classic St.-Émilion profile here, with bright tints and a bouquet of red fruits that embraces the nose then transitions to elegant ripeness. Notions of cherry, plum, currant, blackberry and raspberry mingle with dusty forest floor, cigar box, tobacco and sage. Slightly-toasted, delicious cocoa and spicy hints linger on the finish. Will pair wonderfully with rich dishes, gamey stews, sharp cheeses, roasted veal or lamb. Rich, serious and super fun at the same time, with impressive depth and a WOW value for the opulence and Old World charm it presents.” - California Wine Advisors

BACKGROUND
“Made by Pierre Seillan of Vérité in Sonoma from 50- to 60-year-old vines on clay and limestone, the 2015 Lassègue is composed of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. 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.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (2/18) 

“I describe St.-Émilion 2015s as sensual. They are vivid in color with complex and seductive aromatic profiles, thanks to their freshness and tension, the fineness of the tannin and purity of fruit. In particular, growths on limestone soils had the advantage, imparting harmony and composure.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (#224)
