An attentive, single-parcel vinification produced this sophisticated, elegant Saint-Emilion. More info

Château Dassault is a fine, classical Saint-Emilion. Rather reserved when young, it gradually unfurls aromas of blackcurrant, liquorice and spices. The palate is full-bodied, rich and smooth.

Château Dassault Grand Cru Classé serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Cailles grillées ou rôties, Tournedos rossini, Lamproie cuite au four sauce au vin.

  • Vintage score: 18/20
  • What the experts say...

    Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Dassault gives up notions of crushed red and black currants, black berries and warm plums plus suggestions of cedar chest, yeast extract and garrigue. Medium-bodied, the palate is vibrant and refreshing with a soft texture and loads of long-lingering black and red fruits on the finish. The Wine Advocate (Lisa Perrotti-Brown), 30/11/2018

    Information about domain Château Dassault

    For Michel Dassault, Château La Couperie was love at first sight and having bought it in 1955, he gave it his name. Many investments were made in order to improve the quality of the wines. In 1969 the château obtained Grand Cru Classé status. Today it is Laurent Dassault, the industrialist's grandson, who manages the château. Sustainable farming practices and two rounds of leaf removal help to keep the vines in perfect health, and enable the harvesting of extremely ripe grapes. In order to select the best grapes, the château installed an optical sorting table in 2009. Small concrete vats are used for vinification, enabling the grapes to be separated on a plot-by-plot basis. The wines are aged in new barrels for 14 to 16 months.
