The estate was formerly known as Château Couperie and its name was changed following its acquisition by French aviation billionaire Serge Dassault in 1955. Although not featured in the original 1955 classification of Saint-Emilion, after approximately ten years of investment and improvements the estate eventually gained Grand Cru Classé status in 1969. Renowned enologist, Michel Rolland has acted as consultant winemaker at the estate since 1975, and in 1995 Laurence Brun took on the role of general manager. Today, Château Dassault is a member of Dassault Wine Estates, a collection of three Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé estates that also includes Château La Fleur and Château Faurie de Souchard. The Château Dassault vineyards cover just over 24 hectares (60 acres) on the northern hillsides of the Saint-Émilion plateau. These slopes are composed largely of sand and limestone soils and are primarily planted to Merlot (75 percent), with smaller plantings of Cabernet Franc (22 percent) and Cabernet Sauvignon (5 percent). These three grape varieties – sourced from vines averaging 35 years old – make up the Château Dassault Grand Cru wine, with the youngest Merlot and Cabernet Franc vines harvested for the estate's second label, Le 'D' de Dassault. Grapes are hand-harvested and sorted on arrival at the winery. Each vineyard plot is vinified separately in small, concrete temperature-controlled vats. Following fermentation, the wines spend approximately 12 to 18 months in French oak barrels of which around two-thirds are new. The annual production of Château Dassault's Grand Cru wine runs to around 90,000 bottles with around 30,000 bottles of the Le 'D' de Dassault. Since Serge Dassault's death in 2018, the estate has passed to his son, Laurent.\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e","published_at":"2023-03-10T15:39:11-05:00","created_at":"2023-03-06T10:39:26-05:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_France","other_french wine","Other_Wine","Producer_Château Dassault","Region_Saint-Emilion Grand Cru","RK0603","Source_Wevino0323","Type_Red Wine","Varietal_Bordeaux Blend Red"],"price":26095,"price_min":26095,"price_max":26095,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42824867709066,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"2021 | Château Dassault | Saint-Emilion Grand Cru","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":26095,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[],"quantity_rule":{"min":1,"max":null,"increment":1}}],"images":["\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/33_9583a7c7-112a-4909-a3fd-0a67479ca176.png?v=1678117226"],"featured_image":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/33_9583a7c7-112a-4909-a3fd-0a67479ca176.png?v=1678117226","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"2021 | Château Dassault | Saint-Emilion Grand Cru at CaskCartel.com","id":24339880738954,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.278,"height":489,"width":136,"src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/33_9583a7c7-112a-4909-a3fd-0a67479ca176.png?v=1678117226"},"aspect_ratio":0.278,"height":489,"media_type":"image","src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/33_9583a7c7-112a-4909-a3fd-0a67479ca176.png?v=1678117226","width":136}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 2021 | Château Dassault | Saint-Emilion Grand Cru\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe medium to full-bodied palate has lots of grace and freshness, framed by very soft tannins, finishing long and earthy.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eOrder from the Largest \u0026amp; Most Trusted Premium Spirits Marketplace! \u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eFeatured in\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eROLLING STONE\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eMEN'S JOURNAL\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eUS WEEKLY\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eNOTICE:\u003c\/strong\u003e Many other small liquor store sites may end up cancelling your order due to the high demand, unavailability or inaccurate inventory counts.  We have partnerships consisting of a large network of licensed retailers from within the United States, Europe and across the world ensuring orders are fulfilled.   \u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eProducer:\u003c\/b\u003e Château Dassault\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eRatings: \u003cspan style=\"color: #ff2a00;\" color=\"#ff2a00\" data-mce-style=\"color: #ff2a00;\"\u003eWE\u003c\/span\u003e | 91  \u003cspan style=\"color: #ff2a00;\" data-mce-style=\"color: #ff2a00;\" mce-data-marked=\"1\"\u003ePM\u003c\/span\u003e | 92\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eVintage: \u003c\/b\u003e2021\u003cb\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eSize:\u003c\/b\u003e 750ml\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eABV:\u003c\/strong\u003e 13.5%\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVarietal:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e Bordeaux Blend Red\u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eCountry\/Region:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e France, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c!-- split --\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003eDetailed Description\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe medium to full-bodied palate has lots of grace and freshness, framed by very soft tannins, finishing long and earthy.\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #222223;\" data-mce-style=\"color: #222223;\"\u003eReviews:\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #9f250d;\" data-mce-style=\"color: #9f250d;\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eWine Enthusiast\u003c\/strong\u003e:\u003c\/span\u003e A medium depth of darkly pigmented ruby red in color.
