Château Beauséjour Duffau-Lagarosse in wenigen Worten

1er Grand Cru Classé B, das Château Beauséjour Héritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse wurde 2021 von der Familie Courtin übernommen. Es wird seit 2009 von Nicolas Thienpont mit der Hilfe des brillanten Beraters des rechten Ufers, Stéphane Derenoncourt, verwaltet. Der 7 Hektar große Weinberg ist zu 81% mit Merlot, 16% mit Cabernet Franc und dem Rest mit Cabernet Sauvignon bestockt. Seine Weine sind mindestens 20 Jahre lang lagerfähig. Sie sind fleischig und saftig, bieten ein schönes Volumen und eine seidige Textur mit eleganten Noten von Johannisbeeren und Feigen.


93-95 Robert Parker Wine Advocate, avril 2022

The 2021 Beauséjour (Duffau Lagarrosse) shows considerable promise. Bursting with aromas of inky berry fruit and plums mingled with notions of violets, rose petals and burning embers, the wine is medium to full-bodied, layered and sensual, with a rich core of fruit, lively acids and beautifully refined tannins, concluding with a long, mineral finish. The first vintage made by Joséphine Duffau Lagarrosse since she took back control of the family estate, the 2021 is a blend of 73% Merlot and 27% Cabernet Franc—the highest percentage of Cabernet since the early 2000s (when some Cabernet Sauvignon was included in the blend too).

A complete wine for the vintage, with blackberry, stone, black-licorice and light walnut character. Medium-to full-bodied and linear, with very fine tannins running the length of the wine.

Un 2021 d'une vraie délicatesse de fruit, harmonieux en bouche. Le fruit reste riche sur une pointe de minéralité, les tanins sont appétents et la finale ciselée. Le terroir communique au vin son énergie dans une tension révélatrice du millésime.

An exceptional wine from this estate in 2021. So aromatic and beguiling on the nose - pure, lifted, completely captivating in the intensity of fruit and the liveliness of aroma with tiny touches of milk chocolate and perfumed blackcurrants. Supple, agile and sappy on the palate, but also so delicate and elegant in terms of the overall profile. Tannins are fine and gentle, persistent but with the limestone terroir coming through in the mineral, saline, graphite elements which linger at the end. There is definite concentration, you feel they got the maturity of the fruit and didn't push extraction. It's not super opulent, but expands on the palate and changes after a few minutes in the glass and as it warms, gaining in aromatic complexity. Really very juicy and pristine with cherry, strawberry and blackcurrant fruit as well as liquorice and dark chocolate. Excellent quality with freshness and appeal, balanced and harmonious with the slight lift and peak of clove, vanilla, cedar bramble suggesting a bigger frame that will age well. A success and extremely likeable. 58% new oak. First full vintage for Josephine Duffau-Lagarrosse since she took the helm of her family estate. Tasted twice. Julien Viaud consultant.
