2010 Château Lassègue  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 89

One of the few American owned estates in Bordeaux, the late Jess Jackson purchased the property in 2003. The wine is big, tannic, full bodied and concentrated, with a lot of structure, freshness and depth, The fruit is ripe, with its center of black cherries, licorice and espresso bean, but lacks softness in the texture. Give this at least 5 years to come together. 89 Points

2009 Château Lassègue  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 88

Tannic, full bodied and powerful, but lacking the plush, sensuous characteristics of the vintage, perhaps time will help soften the tannins while better integrating the oak. This is one of the few American owned estates in Bordeaux. It was purchased by Jess Jackson in 2003. 88 Points

2005 Château Lassègue  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 90

Plenty of crisp, ripe juicy, dark fruits, firm tannin and freshness, coupled with a red and black plum, coffee bean, smoke and licorice character to top things off. Well made, interesting to taste, as this Merlot dominated blend comes from the Jess Jackson family of wines. The wine was made from a blend of 60% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. 90 Points
