Château Beauséjour 2009 comes from a great Bordeaux vintage and was rated a perfect 100 points by Robert Parker.

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.

The style of wine at this chateau in the best years are rich, vibrant and intense with an exotic quality. They have silky tannins and are opulent but production is small; in 2009 only around 800 cases were made.

“...a gorgeous bouquet of charcoal, incense, truffles, blackberry jam, black currants, raspberries and flowers. While enormous in the mouth, the limestone soils in which the grapes are grown give the wine good freshness as well as laser-like clarity and precision. Amazing to taste, this massive, super-concentrated powerhouse comes across as ethereal and almost feminine despite its extravagant fruit, density and richness. It is a modern day legend for sure! th.” Robert Parker
