Reviews about Château Dassault 2013



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 "
Drink or keep: 2016-2021

Reviews about Château Dassault 2012



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.

A red which I enjoyed with my friends.
Its intense colour attracted me. Smell like nuts, like it. On the palate reminiscent of leather, slightly burned vanilla.
The combination of this Château Dassault and meat did not seem appropriate, best pair it with fish.
