Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateau Lassegue Grand Cru Classe 2019


Lobenberg: Das Weingut, direkt neben Chateau Pavie an den Kalkstein-Hängen des Hochplateaus gelegen, gehört zur Jackson-Gruppe aus Kalifornien. Der Winemaker und Mitbesitzer Pierre Seilan war früher bei Verite, das ja zu Jackson gehört. Irgendwie merkt man das. Lila-rot-schwarz, öliig, fast fett. Eine Wuchtbrumme mit opulentem Bouquet und gnadenlos fruchtintensivem Aroma. Aber mit Struktur! Und neben fetter Schwarzkirsche, Brombeere, Veilchen, Cassis und Lakritze auch feine Waldhimbeere und ein Touch Sauerkirsche. Fett und fein zugleich. Ein schnäppchenhaft billiges Ereignis für einen fast ganz großen Wein! 95-97/100


Suckling über: Chateau Lassegue Grand Cru Classe

-- Suckling: This is so fine and refined with citrus, crushed stone, lime stone and fresh mushroom. It’s medium-bodied with fine tannins that run the length of the wine. Minerally finish. Tight and racy. Drink after 2025, but already beautiful. 96/100


Decanter über: Chateau Lassegue Grand Cru Classe

-- Decanter: Rich plum in colour, this grips right from the off, and moves slowly and carefully through the palate, revealing brambly blue and red fruits, and a lovely sense of energy and uplift. Extremely good quality, with sage and saffron edges alongside layers of fine tannins that close in towards the finish, slowing things down even more. This will age well, and is an elegant yet concentrated wine. 94/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: Chateau Lassegue Grand Cru Classe

-- Jeb Dunnuck: Coming from the home estate of Pierre Seillan, who’s behind the incredible wines of Vérité in Sonoma, the 2019 Lassègue sports a deep purple color as well as a great nose of blueberries, mulberries, tobacco, dusty earth, and flowery incense. It’s an exotic, full-bodied Saint-Emilion with beautiful balance, plenty of ripe tannins, the vibrancy and freshness of the vintage, and a great finish. It’s a beautifully complex 2019 that’s going to evolve nicely for two decades or more. 93-95/100


Parker über: Chateau Lassegue Grand Cru Classe

-- Parker: The 2019 Lassegue is a blend of 58% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. It is being aged in French oak barrels, 75% new. Displaying a deep garnet-purple color, the nose explodes with pristine, fantastically well-defined notes of Morello cherries, black raspberries and crushed black plums with hints of menthol, Sichuan pepper, cinnamon toast and red roses plus a waft of garrigue. The medium to full-bodied palate gives layer upon layer of elegantly styled black and red fruit flavors, supported by exquisitely ripe tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long with loads of baking spice and floral nuances. 92-94+/100
