The Château Dassault is among the beautiful references of the Saint-Emilion vineyard. Its origin goes back to 1862, the Domaine of the time grouped three farms: the Colombier, Pagaud and Couperie. It is this last name which was retained by the owner of the time. The Château passed through the hands of different owners until 1955, when it was bought by Marcel Dassault, CEO of the Dassault Group, who renamed it after himself. Today, his grandson Laurent is the current manager, continuing his work to produce great wines, straddling traditional methods and innovative technical advances.
The Château Dassault was promoted to Grand Cru Classé in the 1969 edition of the Saint-Emilion classification.
The Château Dassault has a vineyard of 24 hectares planted on ancient sand soils and sands on clay with a presence of iron dross. The grape varieties are 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines are aged for 14 to 18 months in French oak barrels of which 70% are new.
The property produces a Second wine, D de Dassault.
The Château Dassault delivers wines of great refinement, in which the purity of the fruit, freshness and voluptuousness are expressed, imprinted with the sublimation of this exceptional terroir.
