The first written sources that attest the presence of vines at Château Beauséjour date back to the 15th century, though they were most likely grown on this limestone plateau long before then. For centuries, Beauséjour has remained an undisturbed haven spanning just 6.8 hectares yet celebrated by wine enthusiasts around the globe. This exceptional and immutable terroir, which delivers wines of incredible ageing potential, forms an intrinsic part of this region’s collective memory.
The production of Château Beauséjour’s grand vin takes place after a manual harvest, in which only the ripest grapes are selected. Vinification is painstakingly tailored to each vat, with subtle changes to our method based on their particularities, followed by a year-long maturation in Merrain oak barrels.
