Beausejour, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2022

Château Beauséjour

Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 99.0

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.

The 2022 Château Beauséjour (Duffau-Lagarrosse) looks to be another brilliant wine from this incredible terroir located just outside the village of Saint-Emilion. Based on 69% Merlot and 31% Cabernet Franc resting in 68% new oak, it sports a dense purple hue as well as a floral, intense bouquet of cassis, liquid violets, black cherries, truffly earth, and graphite. Hitting 14.5% alcohol with a pH of 3.5, its full-bodied and has a pure, layered, opulent mouthfeel and just about perfect tannins. Theres a little bit more clay in the soils at this estate (theres still plenty of limestone) which gives the wines plenty of power and richness, and the 2022 holds onto a beautiful sense of elegance.

One of the clear standouts of the vintage! A sensual, fun, salivating and sublime wine from winemaker Joséphine Duffau-Lagarrosse that manages to give such generosity, power, terroir markers and overall drinkability. Aromatic, scented, open and expressive with cherries, blackcurrants, purple flowers and crushed stones. Sleek and supple, sharp, tangy acidity and concentrated ripe fruit - it’s forward and intense, direct but defined and detailed. Fine and supportive tannins have bite and a mineral tang putting you squarely in St-Emilion on limestone. Raw and wild in a way, but so expressive and open - honest and just such a captivating wine that belies the heat of the vintage with its cool menthol, blue fruits and lifted finish. Streamlined and focussed, sustained, determined and characterful - sleek in the best way, this is confident but not showy. Succulent, classy, polished. A brilliant wine. 3.5pH. A yield of 42hl/ha. Harvest 6 - 9 September for Merlot and 23 September for Cabernet Franc. Julien Viaud and Axel Marchal consultants. 98-100 points.
