Beauséjour Duffau lagarrosse 2006

12 x 750ml
Definitely the lightest of Saint-Emilion's Premiers Grand Crus in 2006, this wine aims below its station. It is attractive, perfumed, fresh, with open berry fruits. But the texture is thin and the tannins are almost mature. Not for much aging. Read more

Tasting Notes

Medium intesity of fruit with dried prune, blackberry and plum, oak giving struture and sweet spice (cinnamon, clove) savory notes of leather and charcuterie. The wine has a medium finish and is ready to enjoy.

Winemakers Note

Beauséjour, the beginning of a new contemporary era Nestled on both the plateau and the hillside, with a South/South-West facing exposure, in one of the most remarkable sites of the appellation, the 6,80-hectare vineyard of Beauséjour takes on the air of a garden set upon the limestone bedrock. Belonging to the Duffau-Lagarrosse family since 1847, Beauséjour changed hands il April 2021. The result of the fortuitious meeting of two families, Prisca Courtin, granddaughter of Jacques Courtin, creator of Clarins cosmetics, and Joséphine Duffau-Lagarrosse, the ninth generation, here the duo is now at the helm of the estate. A new, dynamic, and talented team has joined them to enhance this exceptional terroir: Axel Marchal and Julien Viaud. The significant changes continue within the property, after the name of the estate, it is now the label that is evolving. Having stripped its name back to Beauséjour earlier this year - though giving a nod to its namesake co-owner and previous title through the inclusion of "J. Duffau-Lagarrosse" on the label - the dynamic duo is delighted to unveil the estate's new visual identity, an embodiment of the latest chapter in its history. Inaugurated ahead of Beauséjour’s 2022 vintage release, this new identity illustrates a modernised legacy, bringing the storied estate’s rich past into the contemporary era.
