Marks and reviews
Château Beauséjour Héritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse has been recognised since the beginning of the Saint-Émilion classification. A family-owned property since 1847, this Premier Grand Cru Classé from this illustrious appellation, located on the right bank of Bordeaux, was acquired in April 2021 by the Courtin-Clarins family associated with Joséphine Duffau-Lagarosse.
This utter gem reigns over a 6.8-hectare terroir, of which close to 6.3 hectares are used for production. The 40-year-old vines are planted in a mosaic of terroirs, formed of clay-limestone soils on limestone, which give rise to fine Saint-Emilion wines. Rooted on the hillside of the medieval city, the vineyard is managed according to traditional methods and most often cultivated manually.
