Description

A Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé with a seductive finesse and complexity

The estate

In 1955, Marcel Dassault, the CEO of the eponymous group, acquired the then abandoned Château Couperie. Marcel Dassault's ambition was to produce a fine Saint-Emilion wine that would enhance the full potential of this exceptional terroir, situated on the northern slopes of the appellation. Following major renovation work, the old estate, now renamed Château Dassault, was classed as a Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé in 1969.

The vineyard

Château Dassault 2021 is a Saint-Emilion wine that stems from a 24-hectare vineyard, 16 of which are in production, located on the northern slopes of the appellation. The vines are 24 years old on average and are planted on sand and on Fronsac ''molasses'' clay. The vineyard bears the HVE (High Environmental Value) Level 3 and ISO 14001 certifications. The soil is worked on the surface and the vines are grassed.

Vinification and ageing

Manual harvest followed by a densimetric sorting. Vatting by gravity. Vinification is carried out in a plot-by-plot manner in thermo-regulated concrete vats and entirely in barrels. Depending on the parcels, the wine is aged for 12 to 16 months in barrels (70% new), in vats (20%) and in amphorae (10%).

The blend

Château Dassault 2021 comprises a blend of Merlot (60%), Cabernet Franc (30%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%).
