The 2014 Lassus has quite an intense, undergrowth and hedgerow-scented bouquet that is well defined, the black fruit emerging and unfolding as it opens in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, finely balanced with impressive backbone. Classic in style, fresh and eminently drinkable, this is an extremely fine Cru Bourgeois that should drink beautifully for several years. This is an excellent wine, natural and thoughtfully crafted. Tasted September 2016.
Château Lassus, the Chaumont family property since 1967, was mentioned in the first edition of "Bordeaux et ses Vins" edited by Charles Cocks in 1850 and was already listed in the Féret 1939 edition as it had been classified Cru Bourgeois in 1932 for its "terroir" and quality of the wines produced. The estate was taken over by the Paeffgen family in 2010 who has realized large investments since to help the cru maintain its renowned status. The quality focus is realized by sustainable efforts in the vineyards and by strong selection process. Today, Stefan Paeffgen, passionate by wines and fallen in love with this charming property, is in charge of it.
