The Structure and Power of an Intensely Mineral Grand Cru de Saint-Emilion

Perched majestically on the great limestone hills of Saint-Emilion, Chateau Beausejour Heritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse is part of a small circle of the most emblematic Grand Crus of Bordeaux.

Expertly managed by the same family since 1847, Vincent Duffau-Lagarrosse and Christophe Redaud are at the helm of the property today. Under the direction of Nicolas Thienpont and David Suire and with the advice of consulting oenologist Stephane Deroncourt, they have put together a brilliant, dynamic and passionate team.

Coming from an atypical vintage full of contrasts, Chateau Beausejour Heritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse 2017 has brought to a new level the expression of the magnificent Saint-Emilion limestone soil. The blend of the Chateau Beausejour Heritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse 2017 highlights the strength and character of Merlot (88%) and Cabernet Franc (12%) from the limestone slope through a mineral structure and profound saline notes.

The intense aromatic bouquet magnificently underlines the richesse of black fruit fragrances, which become apparent when the wine is swirled. Fragrances of lavender essence and wet chalk also appear. With a great power and elegance, the palate delivers in full a personality and structure, characterised by a dense texture and chewy tannins. The mid-palate is energetic, unfolding vivacious fruit and spices, followed by a fresh and persistent finish with saline notes. A monument of structure carved out for many years of age.



Wine Advocate-Parker :
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!
