The balance and character of a Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé
Château Beauséjour has been recognised since the very beginning of the Saint-Émilion classification. A family property since 1847, this Premier Grand Cru Classé of the famous appellation on Bordeaux's right bank was acquired in April 2021 by the Courtin-Clarins family in association with Joséphine Duffau-Lagarosse.
Château Beauséjour is a Saint-Émilion wine that stem from 6.80 hectares of land, with 6.24 hectares in production. The old vines, which are on average 45 years old, are planted on a mosaic of terroirs consisting of clay-limestone soils over asteriated limestone. Rooted on the hillside of the medieval town, the vineyards are cultivated using traditional methods, usually by hand.
The summer season was marked by drought and heat waves from June onwards. Harvesting began on 6 September. The Merlot was harvested between 6 and 9 September. The Cabernet Franc was harvested on 23 September. The 2022 vintage is the first to be entirely designed by the new team at Château Beauséjour.
