The Lassègue 2017 shows a brilliant and profound color. The pure aromatics leap out from the first aeration, showing a panoply of fresh red fruit, and evoking notes of rose and violet. On the palate, the attack is dense and round, with already silky tannins. The midpalate displays a fine complexity of spices and ripe fruits that extends into a long and balanced finish. This vintage exudes freshness and refined minerality. A "vigneron vintage" from a challenging growing season, the excellence of the 2017 finds its roots in Lassègue's grand terroir.

The 2017 Lassegue displays a deep garnet-purple color and quite a spicy nose giving up black pepper, cinnamon and cloves notes over a core of crème de cassis and preserved plums with a waft of dusty soil. The palate is medium to full-bodied with a firm frame of chewy tannins and tons of black fruit layers, finishing long and spicy.

The 2017 Lassegue was tasted twice, one sample not representative as it was too old. The second sample taken the day before, has a perfumed bouquet with iris and light incense aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin and ample, tobacco-tinged black fruit. I really appreciate the balance and freshness of this Lassegue. It feels nicely poised with just a light graphite note poking its head above the surface towards the finish. This property, owned by the Jackson family of Kendall-Jackson/Verite fame, has great terroir and this 2017 shows if off well.
