Château Dassault

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.

Description Château Dassault 2010.

2010 : what a great vintage for the Bordeaux vineyard. The beautiful climatic conditions have indeed allowed the vine to follow a very qualitative development, from the flowering to the ripening of the berries. The guiding principle was a hot and dry summer followed by alternating sunny days and cool nights until the end of the harvest.

Blend of the 2010 vintage: 83% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.

The color is deep and dark red with beautiful garnet reflections.

The nose is precise and complex, offering notes of red and black fruits, peppery spices, undergrowth and truffle.

The attack is supple and elegant, the wine reveals a beautiful amplitude and a lot of density, carried by melting tannins. It evolves in freshness and aromatic persistence with woody and blackberry notes, until a long finish marked by a beautiful acidity and deliciously fruity.

Food and wine pairing:

Chateau Dassault 2010 will pair well with duck breast with Pinot Noir sauce, herb crusted rack of lamb, roasted quail supreme, Corrèze veal nuts, or matured prime rib cooked on vine shoots.

For a pairing with cheese, choose uncooked pressed cheeses: Edam, Gouda, Saint-nectaire, Morbier or Salers.

For dessert, the pairing will be sublime with a chocolate log, a Paris-Brest style layer cake or a black forest.

Ageing potential and tasting:

Château Dassault 2010 can still wait in the cellar before revealing its full potential, as 2010 is a great vintage for ageing. It will reach its peak between 2035 and 2040.

However, it is ready to be enjoyed now if properly prepared. To do so, take care to open and decant the bottle ideally 5 to 6 hours before tasting, at a room temperature between 15 and 18°C.

The bottles will be kept in the cellar, protected from light, lying down, at an optimal hygrometric degree of 70%.
