Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, April 2001

    One of St Emilion's most stylish performers has excelled in 2000. Dark, smoky fruitand great density make this a wine for the long term. Undoubtedly the finest wineproduced here since 1990.

    Robert Parker, June 2010,
    Score: 93

    I often lament the fact that only the 1990 and 2009 are wines that fully showcase this extraordinary terroir. However, the 2000 is no “Ugly Betty,” so to speak. It showed extremely well in the tastings, with the tell-tale notes of flowers, crushed rock, blueberry and camphor well-displayed. Full-bodied, rich, long, and just beginning to shed its cloak of tannin, this is quite an impressively endowed Beausejour-Duffau that can be drunk in 1-2 years or cellared for another 25 or more.

    Robert Parker, April 2003,
    Score: 92

    Undeniably the most complete Beausejour Duffau since the mythical 1990, the black/purple-colored 2000 exhibits a port-like bouquet of licorice, blackberry liqueur, minerals, blueberries, camphor, and melted asphalt. Medium rather than full-bodied, it has a multi-layered texture in addition to gorgeous ripeness. While it is not as rich or super-concentrated as the colossal 1990, the 2000 still merits significant interest. Pure, complex, and reasonably priced, it will be at its apogee between 2013-2025+.

    Clive Coates, June 2001

    Very good colour. Quite a burly nose. Rich but a little solid. Less advanced than some.Medium-full body. Quite tannic. Is it a little too dense? The tannins are a bit astringent.Decent acidity. Very good fruit. Very good but not great. From 2008.

Producer

Château Beauséjour Duffau Lagarosse

Château Beauséjour Duffeau-Lagarosse, sits on top of the plateau overlooking the rest of the St.Emilion vineyards. It is one of 13 Premiers Grands Crus Classés in St Emilion. Jean Michel Dubos manages this tiny estate: 7 hectares . A family owned for 9 generations, it was organized as a company ( a "societé civile" ) in 1963 with 40 shareholders from the extended descendants of the family.

Region

St Emilion

South of Pomerol lies the medieval, perched village of St Emilion. Surrounding St Emilion are vines that produce round, rich and often hedonistic wines. Despite a myriad of soil types, two main ones dominate - the gravelly, limestone slopes that delve down to the valley from the plateau and the valley itself which is comprised of limestone, gravel, clay and sand. Despite St Emilion's popularity today, it was not until the 1980s to early 1990s that attention was brought to this region. Robert Parker, the famous wine critic, began reviewing their Merlot-dominated wines and giving them hefty scores. The rest is history as they say. Similar to the Médoc, there is a classification system in place which dates from 1955 and outlines several levels of quality. These include its regional appellation of St Emilion, St Emilion Grand Cru, St Emilion Grand Cru Classé and St Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé, which is further divided into "A" (Ausone and Cheval Blanc) and "B" (including Angélus, Canon, Figeac and a handful of others). To ensure better accuracy, the classification is redone every 10 years enabling certain châteaux to be upgraded or downgraded depending on on the quality of their more recent vintages.
