Château Dassault  2008 Saint Émilion Grand Gru Classe 750ML

Winemaker Notes

The 2008 possesses loads of fruit, but not the density and complexity I predicted from barrel. The bottled wine is a supple-textured, hedonistic style of St.-Emilion with plenty of herbaceously-tinged red and black fruits, medium body, silky tannins and a lush, fleshy, succulent finish.

Winery: Chateau Dassault

Country: France - Saint Emilion

Chateau Dassault was created in the mid 1800’s by a member of the Fourcaud family. The Fourcaud family are best known for creating Chateau Cheval Blanc. At the time of its birth, the estate started out life under the name of
Château Couperie. That changed in 1955 when the Bordeaux wine estate was purchased by Marcel Dassault. Not only did Marcel Dassault completely renovate the entire St. Emilion estate and its vineyards, he also renamed the property as well. He followed the old custom of naming your Bordeaux winery after yourself. He rechristened the estate, Chateau Dassault.
