    Winemaker's Notes:

    Beautiful ruby color. On the nose there are aromas of berry jam, a hint of roasted coffee and dark fruits, affirming a wine that tastes young. The savory tannins are round and ripe. In the mouth, this wine is very harmonious with an elegant finish, light and fresh, despite the wine's power. You can start enjoying this wine for its fruit if you are impatient, or wait at least 5-6 years to enjoy its full beauty.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Jess Jackson’s new St.-Emilion estate, which includes some impressively old vines, is still a work in progress, but he is achieving higher and higher quality in each vintage. The 2006 reveals slightly too much new oak, but it is a medium to full-bodied effort with powerful tannin, impressive concentration, and a backward style. Pierre Seillan, the Bordelais winemaker responsible for such brilliant wines as Verite, is also overseeing the production of Lassegue. The winemaking team is clearly aiming for a St.-Emilion that will last 2-3 decades. The 2006 should be at its finest between 2014-2025. 89-91

    The top wine produced by Jess Jackson in St-Emilion, Lassegue is soft, ripe, open, packed with dark plums, very opulent.

    Good deep red-ruby. Black cherry, dark berries, minerals, cola and sexy oak on the nose; became more perfumed with aeration. Sweet and fine-grained, but with solid underlying spine to its dark fruit, spice and cola flavors. Thanks to its impression of lushness without weight, this is the most refined wine yet from this property.
