2007 Lassègue, St-Emilion

SKU #1273319 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Bright ruby-red. Black fruits, licorice and minerals on the nose. A dense, rich midweight with slightly chunky flavors of blackberry, currant, dark chocolate and menthol. (ST)  (7/2010)

K&L Notes

68% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon. Winemaker Pierre Seillon aged this wine for 13 months in French oak (70% new), and predicts it'll be hitting its stride in 2020. As for taste, he says: "On the nose subtle aromas of leather with an expression of toasted bread and vanilla. It develops into fresh black fruit and spices. It stays smooth and fresh until the end, with round and refined tannins. Extremely long finish."

Additional Information:



- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
