A great certified organic, right bank Bordeaux from a small 12 hectare estate. Gerard Dupuy learned the “ancestral” methods of his great-grandfather for taking care of the vines. Before there was an official doctrine and the accepted term “organic” viticulture, there were vignerons who eschewed the use of new chemical products becoming available as options for treating pests and illnesses in the vineyards. It is truly rare today to discover vineyards that have literally never been subjected to any chemical pesticide or herbicide. Stroll through the vineyards at either Beauséjour or Langlais and you will quickly see that there is a complete and harmonious ecosystem in place. In the spring, each year, there are fragile tulips growing among the vines, a clear sign that there is balance and life in the soils. A blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cab Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauv. Full bodied and fragrant, with lots of dark fruit on the palate with nice herbaceous notes. This 2009 is just starting to drink beautifully. The tannins are just beginning to soften and developing characteristics emerging. Perfect to drink now and over the next 10 years.
