Château Dassault 2013 has a nose full of freshness and jammy. A beautiful field and a beautiful balance for this wine. The tannins are powerful but structured and fluxes. A great success.
According Bettane & Desseauve: "Good value: Regular as clockwork, there are Château Dassault seats with beautiful every year Good elegant and firm definition, precise red fruit, tannin well drawn, longer.."
"Lots of blueberry and dark-chocolate character. Medium to full body with very good fruit in the center palate and a medium finish" by James Suckling "

Formerly named Castle Couperie, this Saint-Emilion Grand Cru renamed in 1955 when Marcel Dassault made the acquisition, which he calls "heart suddenly thought of." After a draconian work both on 28 hectares of vines in the cellar, Château Dassault becomes Classified Growth in 1969, reconfirmed in 2006.
The property is now in the hands of grand-son of the purchaser, Laurent Dassault, supported by Laurence Brun. With a team of enthusiasts, the vineyard has a policy of continuous improvement, closely watched by the famous consultant oenologist Michel Rolland.
The vines of the vineyard is composed of 65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Château Dassault 2012 will be played the card of seduction this year. On generous raspberry, cassis and blackberry, it presents the opulence, the body and a smooth finish. Certainly one of the revelations of this vintage.
