Chateau Lasségue 2015

Saint Émilion, Libourne, Bordeaux, FranceA ready to drink vintage is always welcomed, even in 2015 when everything is already managed better in the vineyard and the winery. At Lasségue, winegrower Pierre Seillan is doing a fine job of letting the site express itself via soft, plummy ripe black fruits spiked with spice and a subtle but present stony minerality. The blend is 70/20/10 merlot/cabernet franc/cabernet sauvignon, and while it's drinkable now, it should age well through 2022. Try this with a favourite mushroom dish or roast pork or chicken. Chateau Lasségue has roots in Bordeaux that date back to the 1600’s, but by the time Jesse Jackson got involved in 2003 it was at a low point. His fix was winegrower Pierre Seillan, and after Jess died in 2011, Seillan and Jesse’s wife Barbara Banke have carried on improving every aspect of the chateau.Tasted: 02 February 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 76.99 private wine shops AB 70.00 private wine shops Producer: Chateau LasségueDistributors: Summit Fine Wines
