It is in 1955 that Marcel Dassault buys this domain on a crush.
From the beginning, the investments go in the direction of quality, and
in 1969 the Château Dassault logically enters the classification under
Grand Cru Classé.
Today it is Laurent Dassault who is at the controls of the estate, the
grandson, who has taken over and who perpetuates a spirit of high
quality by doing everything possible to achieve this goal.
A wine,a terroir
Château Dassault is a local wine.
The maturity of the grape pulp is not enough, the teams of the estate
look for an extreme maturity ranging from the skin of the grapes to the
pips. So the best of the terroir can stand out, it's a permanent quest, a strength that deserves with additional amounts of care. Harvesting is done by hand in a crate to harvest the grapes with maximum delicacy and precision.
A work at the forefront in cellars
The Château Dassault has cellars at the forefront of what is best on Bordeaux.
The delicate work of vinification takes place in concrete tanks of
small capacity, allowing to receive separately each plot and to respect
the personality. The wine is aged in new barrels at 80% (the rest of a vintage) for 18 months.
Château Dassault makes every effort to produce a very great wine. Every detail is taken into account, and everything is done to offer the best at each stage of the realization of the wine. The work in the vineyard is complete, accurate and the follow-up is total throughout the year.
In the cellars the work is also based on the precision during
vinification (thanks to the use of small concrete vats), then everything
is done to offer the best wine aging (80% of new high quality barrels
during 18 months).
