"An utterly spellbinding wine, the 2014 Beauséjour Héritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse is also one of the unqualified successes of the vintage. Beams of tannin give the 2014 its ample, broad feel. Inky red cherry, blueberry, smoke, leather and tobacco fill out the wine's big frame effortlessly. Layers of intense fruit meld into a huge spine of tannin in a vertical, massively structured Saint-Émilion. So many 2014s are charming and accessible, but this is not one of them. Readers will have to be patient."

Product Description:

"Rated a Premier Grand Cru Classé since the start of the Saint-Émilion wine classification system, Château Beauséjour hDL, a veritable gem of the Saint-Émilion wine region, has been managed since 1847 by the Duffau Lagarrosse family. Enjoying an exceptional location and a first-rate terroir, the château's vines produce some of France's best wines, famous around the world (best 2009 vintages, rated 100/100 by Parker, etc.). The wines of Saint-Émilion, like the other grands crus of Bordeaux and French wines in general, represent prestigious, luxury products.

Beauséjour is a family-run, wine-making estate jointly managed by Vincent Duffau Lagarrosse and Christophe Redaud, with the support of Nicolas Thienpont and Stéphane Derenoncourt since the 2009 vintage. Beauséjour wines can be purchased directly at the château or by filling out the downloadable order form (shipment and delivery within France, only). You will find exceptional and old vintages for purchase, in regular bottles, magnums and Jeroboams." - Winery
