Elegance Defined: The 2019 Château Lassègue Saint-Émilion Grand Cru

Heritage and Harmony

Nestled in the heart of Saint-Émilion, Château Lassègue's illustrious history and 18th-century architecture are symbolized by ornate sundials, a nod to optimal sun exposure and a tribute to the wine's radiant quality. Under the aegis of the Seillan family, the estate flourishes on south/southwest-facing slopes where clay and limestone soils enrich the vines. This combination of terroir and old vines yields a wine embodying power and elegance, a hallmark of the esteemed Grand Cru Classé status awarded in 2022.

Vintage Chronicles

The 2019 vintage unfolded with a mild winter segueing into a wet spring, setting the stage for an early and consistent flowering despite sporadic rains. A hot, dry summer followed, allowing the vines to thrive, supported by the water reserves within the clay-limestone terroir. The vines were refreshed with a few timely summer rains, leading to a prolonged veraison. The harvest under excellent conditions from September 24th to October 9th captured the essence of the vintage's balance and ripeness.
