The memory of the vine:

From dawn to dusk, the 18th century château has witnessed the painstaking work carried out in the vineyards, season after season. With its 36 hectares of vines set against Saint-Emilion’s southern hillsides, painstakingly laid out across a natural amphitheatre, Château Lassègue's vineyards are blessed with a perfect south/south-west exposure and a clay soil mixed with varying proportions of limestone.

These nuances are further enriched by the varietals planted. Complementing the old Merlot vines, that grand old grape of the Saint-Emilion region, Cabernet Franc plays an important role at Château Lassègue, balancing the blends with its delicate aromas. A finishing touch of Cabernet Sauvignon adds structure and power to the blend.

Pierre Seillan's micro-crus approach, which he has practiced for more than 30 years, takes into account all the components of the terroir to reveal its complexities. Sustainable management of the vineyards and gentle treatment of the grapes during the harvest ensure that the character of each individual micro-cru shines through.

By utilizing an array of small tanks, the micro-crus are individually brought to life. Allowing each small batch to be vinified separately multiplies all the possible options, not unlike the ranges of colors on an artist’s palette. Here again, the winemaker uses his sensitivity to compose a wine that reveals its terroir in a fine balance of power and elegance.

Lassègue is a vigneron's wine:

The terroir and its micro-crus express their nuances in vintage after vintage. The know-how passed down through the generations, both in the vineyard and during the vinification and blending processes, results in welcoming, authentic wines that are a true reflection of their clay-limestone terroir.
The fresh, delicate aromas of Cabernet Franc are balanced by the voluptuous concentration of the old Merlot vines along with a lingering touch of Cabernet Sauvignon, in wines of elegant power.
