    The typicality of a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru from a spectacular vintage

    The Grand Vin of the estate, the Chateau Dassault 2018 expresses all the typicality of a Grand Cru Classe from Saint-Emilion.

    Located on the right bank of Bordeaux, Chateau Dassault reigns over a vineyard of 24 hectares on the northern slope of Saint-Emilion. The soils are sandy-clayey, clay-sandy and clay on molasse du Fronsadais.

    At Chateau Dassault, the grapes are harvested manually using optical sorting and gravity-feeding. The property was actually one of the first to have an optical sorting table, in 2009.

    The Chateau Dassault 2018 is made from a blend of Merlot (75%), Cabernet Franc (22%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (3%). This Saint-Emilion Grand Cru is aged in new oak barrels (70%) and in barrels of one previous wine (30%). Made with the greatest respect for the terroir and the fruit, the Chateau Dassault 2018 offers the experience of a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classe with a beautiful personality from a beautiful vintage for the Bordeaux region.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Dassault has pronounced scents of baked red and black plums, fruitcake and raspberry coulis with touches of fallen leaves, Chinese five spice and menthol. Full, rich and spicy in the mouth, it has a wonderfully velvety texture and plenty of freshness lifting the hedonic fruit to a long, spicy finish.
