Marks and reviews
In 1955, Marcel Dassault, CEO of the eponymous group, acquired the then abandoned Château Couperie with the ambition of magnifying the potential of this exceptional terroir located on the northern slopes of Saint-Émilion. Following major renovation work, the former property, now renamed Château Dassault, was promoted to Grand Cru Classé in 1969.
Château Dassault 2022 is a Saint-Émilion wine made from a vineyard of 39.2 hectares, 32 of which are in production, located on the northern slopes of the appellation. The vines are 26 years old on average and are planted on sand and clay on Fronsadais molasse. The vineyard is certified HVE (High Environmental Value) Level 3 and ISO 14001. The soil is worked superficially and the vines are grassed.
Winemaking and ageing
Manual harvest followed by a densimetric sorting. Vatting by gravity. Vinification by plot in stainless steel vats and entirely in new barrels for the Cabernet Sauvignon. Depending on the plot, the wine is aged for 12 to 16 months in barrels (60% new), tuns (11%), vats (10%), amphorae (10%) and one-wine barrels (9%).
Château Dassault 2022 is a blend of Merlot (77%), Cabernet Franc (20%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (3%).
