Château Lassègue

Single bottle of red wine against a tile background

2017 Red Wine

750ml

The Lassègue 2017 shows a brilliant and profound color. The pure aromatics leap out from the first aeration, showing a panoply of fresh red fruit, and evoking notes of rose and violet. On the palate, the attack is dense and round, with already silky tannins. The midpalate displays a fine complexity of spices and ripe fruits that extends into a long and balanced finish. This vintage exudes freshness and refined minerality.


A “vigneron vintage” from a challenging growing season, the excellence of the 2017 finds its roots in Lassègue’s grand terroir.
