I am biased of course but beautiful subtle graphite nose. Firm yet pleasant grip on the tannins

Coffee shop nose. The nose is the star. The palate is very soft and pleasurable.

A Blend of 62% Merlot, 30% Cab Franc & 8% Cab Sauv, deep garnet with medium intensity of black fruits, herbs and mint. On the palate concentrated flavors of baked blackberry and raspberry fruit with notes of tobacco, sage and herbs. Big yet smooth tannins, nicely balanced, long finish, ending with spice and earthy character.

Seemingly much riper, more fruit forward and youthful than the 07. Good, not great.

2006 Lassègue Saint Émilion Grand Cru - drinking nicely with elegant earthy leather and black fruit expressions. Let it breathe for 45 mins and drink now.

Not a big wine but delivers an interesting package of tart red Berry, smokiness, and minerals that transition into some fine but grippy tannins. Delivers a typical Right Bank profile but it's lean.

Big, bold, brooding red wine night. This Saint Émilion GC has ATTITUDE! Medes another 1-2 yrs.
