From the 2015 vintage onward, a new "dress code"... Recognized as a Premier Grand Cru Classé from the origins of the Saint-Emilion Classification, Chateau Beauséjour Duffau-Lagarrosse heirs has belonged to the family since 1847. For seven generations, the Duffau-Lagarrosse heirs have striven to sustain this vineyard, a seven-hectare jewel, ingrained on the slope, offering itself to the wind and the sun to conserve its renown. They count on an experienced team to conduct the necessary evolutions and elevate the wines of Chateau Beauséjour to the highest level. It is in this spirit that they asked Nicolas Thienpont and Stéphane Derenoncourt to accompany them beginning with the 2009 vintage.

This has some sizzle, with roasted mesquite and ebullient red licorice notes out front, as well as steak to match, featuring a core sporting ample crushed cherry, red currant and plum fruit flavors. Light tea and chalk threads skitter through the finish, where the fruit echoes nicely. This has grown a bit since the barrel tasting. Best from 2023 through 2040. 1,500 cases made.

Barrel Sample. This wine is firmly structured, with dense tannins and concentrated black-fruit flavors. The acidity provides a lifting edge that enlivens the finish.

The 2015 Beausejour (Duffau Lagarrosse) is a blend of 90% Merlot picked between 25 September and 5 October, 10% Cabernet Franc picked on 5 and 12 October. It was cropped at 34 hl/ha. It has a very intense, quite opulent bouquet, just like the 2015 Pavie-Macquin from barrel, with fig-tinged red cherry fruit, hints of kirsch and glycerin. The palate likewise shows more refinement and class, the tannins fine and the acidity well judged. It has a fresh finish, though it just needs to muster a touch more tension and sense of energy right on the finish. Let's see what happens during its élevage, because it has the materials to turn into a very fine Saint Emilion.
