Chateau des Landes

Located in Lussac-Saint-Emilion, the domain consist of several soils: silty-clay and clay-limestone, that formed during Tertiary and Quaternary geological times. They allow the produced wines to have typicity and consistency.

Clay-limestone soils are to be found south of the property. It is a loam soil with fine clay, counting numerous more or less hard little white rocks. It is every winemakers’ dream to own such balanced soils, mixing clay freshness and limestone filtering properties. These soils are perfect to host Vignobles Lassagne premium grape varieties such as Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon.

As for Château des Landes Cuvée Prestige, the soils are rich in iron oxide deposits, locally called “crasse de fer”. They play a great deal in the typicity of this cuvée by bringing richness and volume to the tasting.

The soils around the cellars are clay-silty with various amounts of clay. The vines roots go through the first silty layers to reach water in clay that acts as a reservoir.

The produced wines will be spherical and fleshy with a nice mid-palate density.
