Château Beauséjour

cuvée Prestige Fronsac 2016

Château beauséjour, fronsac 2016, cuvée Prestige, 100% merlot

Cherry, black currant, toast, tar, oak. The palate is well made, with a roundness to it, some savory notes, a very soft mouthfeel, almost velvety, some carressing tanins in the rear, a real nice fruity, savory finish that lasts for a long time. Great stuff!

Domaine de Beauséjour

Cuvée Vincent Touraine Gamay Noir 2020

Interesting approach to Gamay. Almost savory? Moderately long finish. It’s describes as soft round and meaty but I’m more aware of the meaty quality. I find the fruit understated, although more present in the nose than mouth. — 10 months ago

Château Grand-Pontet

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2020

2020 vintage. The last vintage for this wine as it was bought from the Bécot family ( owners of Beauséjour-Bécot) by the owners of Haut-Brion in 2021. It will be incorporated into Château Quintus (which is a merger of 3 estates: Tertre-Daugay, L'Arrosée and Grand-Pontet). Many Saint-Emilion estates disappeared, incorporated into other estates, some very good wines sadly disappeared like Curé Bon La Madeleine (now into Canon), Cadet-Piola (now into Soutard) and so on. The fact that Grand Cru Classés can legally be incorporated into Premier Grands Crus Classés tells you that you have to take the classification with more than a grain of salt. A bit shy on the nose, even after a few hours. Medium-bodied, nice value for a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé. — 6 months ago

Puisseguin Saint-Émilion Cuvée Spéciale Merlot & Cabernet Franc 2018

Purpley (look and taste!), earthy (probably a Virgo) and it does have that Virgo-esque ability to be heady (Ready to conquer nose! Tannins! So much!) but, again, earthy and grounded. With a hint of mint. — 2 years ago

Héritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2019

Delectable Wine

The 2019 Beauséjour Héritiers Duffau-Lagarosse has a composed and more backward nose with blackberry, raspberry coulis and cedar, quite airy yet focused. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, quite stern and structured, backward and unyielding towards the finish laced with graphite that lingers on the aftertaste. This seriously requires time. Tasted blind at the Southwold annual tasting. (Neal Martin, Vinous, February 2023) — 7 months ago

Croix de Beausejour Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Incredible RBB…mocha, black fruit, oak. Smelled and tasted incredible, but the finish was classic Bordeaux, rocks and dirt… — 10 months ago

Nicolas Thienpont

Chateau La Prade Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 vintage. Nicolas Thienpont is a great winemaker at 3 Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classés Beauséjour HDL, Pavie Macquin and Larcis Ducasse +Grand Cru Classé Berliquet + a few estates in the Côtes de Bordeaux). This Côtes de Francs is probably the most humble in his stable, but it's a very serious wine. A blend of 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc, it features a dark red colour colour with a purplish rim, a complex nose with blueberry and strawberry fruit, flowers and cocoa powder. The fruit is packed in a tight ripe tannic structure, with balancing acidity and serious length. I would recommend to give this overachiever a few years of bottle age. Abv. 14,5%. Great value at 12,90 euro. — 3 years ago
