Chateau de Beausejour Duffau-Lagarrosse HDL Saint-Emilion 2016  - First Bottle


99 Jeff Leve -
Almost opaque in color, the wine smells like you are in a flower shop on an ocean liner at sea. The freshness makes this pop. The layers of unctuous, juicy, fresh, lively fruit give it life. And the finish which hits you in all the right spots, truly delivers the goods for over 60 seconds! Not as hedonistic as the 2015. Instead you find more focus, acidity and length. This is a beauty that still sells for a song, considering the high level of quality found here
97 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate -
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Beausejour (Duffau Lagarrosse) slips seductively out of the glass with perfumed scents of candied violets, chocolate-covered cherries, lavender and baked plums with nuances of redcurrants, forest floor, mossy bark and new leather. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has bags of grace and finesse with a super fine-grained frame and lovely freshness lifting the intense, perfumed fruits to a very long, mineral-tinged finished. Gorgeous.
96 Wine Enthusiast -
While this wine offers superripe fruit, it also has the freshness that comes from the vintage. It is both opulent and juicy with spice and a smoky character from the judicious wood aging. Drink this generous wine from 2025.
95 Falstaff -
Dark ruby ??garnet, violet reflections, delicate lightening of the edges, fine plum fruit, ripe cherries, delicate nougat, a hint of precious wood, candied orange zest. Full-bodied, round and extremely sweet, fine, supporting tannins, good structure, delicate touch of chocolate, red berry nuances, stays on the palate, reliable aging potential.

About the Producer

Château Beauséjour, located in Montagne-Saint-Émillion northeast of Saint-Émillion, was established in 1851. In 2004, Pierre and Patricia Bernault took ownership with the aim to revive the estate's reputation and status as one of the region's top wines. With the support of renowned oenologist Stephane Derenoncourt, they succeeded in their goal. The vines at Château Beauséjour are grown on a hillside facing south-southwest, from outside the Montagne church's bell tower to the Calon mills. The vines are very old, some over 100 years, and the terroir consists of clay and limestone with limited topsoil. No harmful chemicals are used, and yields are kept low for a more traditional winemaking process with minimal extraction to preserve the wine's elegance.
