Men of the land, Jess Jackson and Pierre Seillan were intrigued and drawn to the right bank of Bordeaux.
Men of wine as well, they knew that it was here where complexity, finesse, elegance and silky tannins could best be cultivated.
Since the passing of Jess Jackson in April 2011, his wife, Barbara Banke, and their three children, Katie, Julia, and Christopher, have taken the reins, fueled by the passion that Jess passed on to them.
Today, they work hand in hand with Pierre and Monique Seillan, and their children Nicolas and Hélène.
Château Lassègue is their shared family project, an alliance of two generations.
