    This is hearty, deep and firm with dark fruit flavors and wonderfully dry tannins. A rather old school and brooding style that will likely soften up a bit with age but probably always remain masculine and somewhat chewy. This could stand up to a great piece of dry aged beef or even BBQ.

    I read an old review from Robert Parker once where he claimed that while Dassault wines were primarily made to drink in their youth, you would rarely come across a bad bottle. Simple, but damn tasty was his summary. That was exactly the experience I had tasting the 2014 vintage from Dassault, my first from the property as we rarely carry the wine here at K&L. This is one tasty bottle of Bordeaux, full of everything I love about St. Emilion: rich and robust fruit, a supple mouthfeel, and plenty of stuffing on the finish. It's a total sleeper on a shelf full of more expensive options. Along with the 2014 Fonplegade, I think it's the value hit of the 2014 Right Bank offerings.

    We have been tasting this wine for 25 years-this is the first time we have bought it in any quantity.Why now-because it is delicious with an intriguing nose of toasted oak and Asian spices. Decant now for one hour, but better to cellar it. 90% Merlot. Lush on the palate but very focused on the finish. Will cellar well.
    Drink from 2020 to 2030
