Internationally renowned winemaker Pierre Seillan is no stranger to producing premier wines.

That's why we are excited to share with you today an exceptional example of right bank Bordeaux from Seillan's Chateau Lassegue's second label Chateau Vignot.
2007 Chateau Vignot Saint-Emilion Grand Cru
Chateau Vignot Saint Emilion Grand Cru is lively and complex with grapes sourced from vines on the lower foothills of the premier estate. Opening with fragrant aromas of cigar box, leather, and wet tobacco, the fresh palate of tantalizing dark fruit and leather is well-balanced with subtle hints of vanilla and oak. With 12 years of age on it, this bad boy is drinking phenomenally right now! We suggest giving this wine about an hour decant to really open up and deliver!
