Château Beauséjour is often referred to as Château Beauséjour (Duffau-Lagarrosse) to avoid confusion with its neighbour Château beau-séjour-bécot. Both were once part of a larger estate called Beauséjour.

Owned by the Duffau-Lagarrosse family and run by Jean-Michel Dubos, Beausejour is considered the better of the two estates, whose reserved, complex and minerally Saint-Émilion style wines fully justifies its premier grand cru classé status.

“Tasting like black raspberry confiture with subtle notes of graphite and crushed chalk along with enormous floral notes, the wine displays a slightly smoky character but a voluptuous attack, mid-palate and finish. Its is full-bodied and massively endowed, with every component perfectly etched in this extraordinary wine, which should be drinkable after 7-8 years of bottle age and last for a half-century or more. This is brilliant stuff…remarkably, the pH is modest and the acids relatively elevated, giving the wine an astonishing freshness and precision that is hard to believe in view of its power, density and length.” Robert Parker
