Château Beauséjour (Duffau-Lagarrosse)

Château Beausejour Duffau-Lagarrosse

Beausejour Duffau-Lagarrosse split with the rest of the Beausejour estate in the late 19th century. The winery remained somewhat under the radar for most of a century until the 1990 vintage became a cult hit when it scored 100 points with Robert M. Parker Jr and he called it was his “desert island wines”.  But the 1990 was largely considered a bit of a one-hit-wonder until the last decade or so. 

The small 6.75 ha vineyard is 80% Merlot with Cabernet Franc and a tiny amount of Cabernet Sauvignon. The estate is gradually increasing the percentage of Cabernet Franc. The vineyard is well positioned in a single plot on top of the Saint-Émilion plateau.  The average age of the vines is close to 35 years of age, with some vines being much older. The elevations on the hillside terroir range from 45 meters to 70 meters at its peak. The vineyard is managed using sustainable techniques with the goal of naturally low yields.

Fast-forward to the present and 2009 can be seen as the beginning of a new era for this tiny Saint-Émilion property. They issued one successful vintage after another hitting 100 points in 2015 and firmly establishing themselves in the highest echelon of the region.  Indeed, in his note on the 2016 Jeb Dunnuck refers to the estate as now being “legendary”.

Wine Advocate (94+)

Another brilliant wine of great nobility and finesse, the 2011 Beausejour-Duffau reveals a saturated chalky minerality as well as plenty of blue and black fruits, and fabulous precision and purity. It possesses a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel and a distinctive/singular style only possessed by the greatest wines. Give it 4-5 years of cellaring and drink it over the following two decades. It promises to be one of the longest lived wines of the vintage. At 14.7% alcohol, this is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.

Beausejour Duffau-Lagarrosse 2013 (6x75cl)

Antonio Galloni - Vinous (93-95)

The 2013 Beauséjour Héritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse is one of the most exciting wines of the vintage. Dark, rich, powerful and creamy, the 2013 boasts stunning overall balance. An exotic, beguiling bouquet melds into dark fruit in an utterly impeccable, vivid wine loaded with personality. Sweet rose petals, spices and mint wrap around the highly expressive finish. This is one of the highlights of the vintage, a year that had more than its share of challenges. The old-vine Merlot was quite vulnerable to coulure, while the later-ripening Cabernet Franc suffered from poor late-season weather. The blend is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. Tasted twice.

Jeff Leve (94-96)

Licorice, stone, smoke, truffle, flowers and black raspberries create the multifaceted bouquet. On the palate, this wine plays like a goddess -- sensuous, sexy, and sleek. It tastes as good as it feels with velvety tannins and sweet, luscious, fresh red and dark red fruits. Produced from a blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, the wine reached 14.2% with a pH 3.5. 94-96 Pts

This is extraordinary. There has never been a wine like this here since the famous 1990 or underrated 1989. Violets, flowers, stones and limestone. Oyster-shell undertones. Full-bodied, muscular and so structured. A phenomenal wine that reminds me of the great Bordeaux of the 1950s. Try in 2026.

This legendary Saint-Emilion needs 6-7 years of cellaring and will keep for 3-4 decades. Don’t miss this wine!

Beausejour Duffau-Lagarrosse 2017 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (94-96)

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Beausejour Heritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse is slightly closed, revealing glimpses at bright, cheery black cherries, black berries and wild blueberries with very serious preserved plums, licorice and mocha in the background and a waft of fragrant soil. Medium to full-bodied, it has a firm frame of ripe tannins and seamless freshness supporting the subdued, earthy layers, finishing long and minerally. It should be wonderfully long-lived but will need time to enjoy!

Decanter (98)

Another stunning vintage from this brilliant estate that is just delivering hit after hit. Concentration and intensity right from the initial aromatics, damson, cassis and blackberry fruits that you could almost drink now until the tannins build up across the palate and remind you that this is built to last. Velvety texture, black chocolate and crushed stone minerality on the finish. One of the wines of the vintage. Tasted twice, one week apart. 60% 1st wine. A yield of 45hl/ha.

This is a very cool and refined young Bordeaux with crushed-berry, walnut, mushroom, chocolate and salt character. Some wet earth, too. It’s medium-to full-bodied with very integrated tannins that are polished and poised. Energetic, long and precise at the finish. 81.5% merlot and 18.5% cabernet franc.
