Chateau Beausejour Duffau-Lagarrosse 2016

Out of stock
France / 750ML / 2016

The 2016 Beausejour (Duffau Lagarrosse) is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc picked between 18 October and 21 October, matured in 55% new oak. The alcohol is 14.4%, with a pH of 3.38. It has a very perfumed bouquet with luscious red cherry and wild strawberry fruit, fine delineation, touches of truffle and smoke in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with very supple tannin that belie the structure of this Saint Emilion. This has a gorgeous salinity and spiciness that lend it character, very long and persistent with a tang of black pepper on the aftertaste. This is a step up from the 2015 last year and should rest at the top of my banded score once in bottle.

Ratings
This small estate, a Premier Grand Cru Class?Ÿ?? in Saint-Emilion, is now showing its pedigree. This vintage wine is impressively ripe as well as structured. It has serious tannins that are inextricably wedded to the powerful black fruits. It will last for many years, so hold it until 2029, at least. Barrel Sample: 95?›ƒ?ªƒ??97 Points Wine Enthusiast

Wow, that is rich, tight and closed in. It is absolutely dancing with minerality, and just gets better and better on the palate. It doesn't try to force itself on you, but it certainly walks in the room five paces ahead. This is what St-?Ÿƒ?ømilion can do, and could always have done if it didn't try so hard. A beautiful deep colour and pure fruit, what a lovely fresh, lifted but concentrated wine. Nicolas Thienpont is consultant here. 96 Points Decanter

Other Notes
Chateau Beausejour was built in 1851 by the Laporte family. The Laporte family owned several vineyard estates in the Bordeaux region and were also prosperous wine merchants. In those days, the large chai was used to store and age the most prestigious wines of the Saint ?Ÿƒ?ømilion and Pomerol regions (Cheval Blanc, Petrus, Beau-Sejour, N?Ÿ??nin, La Conseillante, ... and Ch?Ÿ?›teau Beausejour!) The estate was purchased in 1994 by a group of wine loving investors. During this period, the Germain Vineyards Company was in charge of the management and the marketing of the wines. Patricia and Pierre Bernault have owned Ch?Ÿ?›teau Beaus?Ÿ??jour since December 2004; Pierre himself comes from a family of vine growers, who have been cultivating their own vineyards since 1850. As soon as Patricia and Pierre Bernault bought Beaus?Ÿ??jour, St?Ÿ??phane Derenoncourt and his team got involved in giving them advice on restoration of the vineyard and the soil, as well as on the rigorous stages of the process of making and maturing wine.
