TASTING NOTES

"This is very driven and intense with so much limestone and salt character on the palate. Dark fruits, too. Linear and chewy, especially on the long finish. Beautiful center palate of fruit." JamesSuckling.com

"Intense, with juicy layers of fig, boysenberry and blackberry compote coursing through. Bramble and spice notes fire up on the finish, which kicks in with an extra bolt of energy at the end. A showy wine that pulls it off." Wine Spectator

"A rich, explosive wine, the 2017 Beauséjour Héritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse hits the palate with serious depth and intensity. Charcoal, smoke, crushed rocks, lavender, incense and blackberry jam are all beautifully delineated in a vivid, arrestingly beautiful Saint-Émilion of the highest level. Huge, searing tannins are going to need many years to soften. Beauséjour Héritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse is one of the most structured, tannic Saint-Émilions of the vintage. Tasted three times." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"The 2017 Beauséjour Héritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse was picked at 38hl/ha from 22 September to 2 October for the Merlot and 29 September to 2 October for the Cabernet Franc. Around two-thirds of the crop entered the Grand Vin and 55% is matured in new oak. It has a not dissimilar bouquet to the Pavie-Macquin (also overseen by Nicolas Thienpont) perhaps showing a little more volume and decadence: macerated small dark cherries, fig, black plum and a touch of marmalade. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe tannin, a fine bead of acidity, closing in a little towards the second half compared to the Pavie-Macquin that remains open throughout. There is a fine mineral core to this Saint-Émilion with a sappy, saliva-inducing finish. This will require four or five years in bottle and I wager that it should be consumed after the Pavie Macquin." Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"Very dark. Ripe, dark black plums and just a touch of red cherry. Then quite oaky on the palate, rich, firm, smooth, with chocolate on the finish from the oak. Needs quite a bit of time. Chewy on the second taste. No lack of fruit but the structure dominates at the moment." Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com
