Review: 2016 Chateau Lassegue Saint Emilion Grand Cru

Lassegue’s 2016 Bordeaux is an earth-fueled monster, layering notes of mushroom and leather with cassis and blackberry. A licorice kick spars with notes of graphite and crushed slate, plus a modest balsamic note. The finish folds together chocolate and a significant violet character clearly driven by the merlot in the blend (about 60-65%). Complex and curious, it’s a wine that evolves nicely in glass and rewards an extended night of exploration.
