    Joséphine Duffau Lagarrosse's third vintage at this terrific hillside terroir is her most impressive to date. The 2023 Beauséjour (Duffau Lagarrosse) offers up aromas of black raspberries, mulberries, violets, spices and incense, followed by a medium to full-bodied, deep and layered palate that's seamless, suave and concentrated, with lively acids, beautiful purity of fruit and a long, mineral, gently balsamic finish. It's a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, picked on nine days between September 13 and October 3. Duffau Lagarrosse's work on oak selection (she favors Burgundy's cooperage Cadus, among others) has delivered much more seamless integration at this early stage, and her attentive approach to extraction is already bearing fruit in the form of tannins that are more polished and refined than was formerly the case at this address. It's a brilliant effort from a property with almost limitless potential.

    The purity of fruit is impressive here, with raspberry, blueberry and mineral character. It’s so precise and focused with medium body and lovely length.

    This is only Josephine Duffau-Lagarosse’s third vintage, but in such a short space of time she has had an extraordinary impact on this small gem of a property, a tiny 6.5 ha estate in one of the finest locations of the famed plateau of St Emilion. If you want to assess the impact of the limestone soils of the greatest locations in the appellation, look no further: this is a sensational wine. An exquisite combination of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, it was one of the most perfumed and aromatically expressive wines of the week. It just flowed across the palate, gracious and harmonious. This is such a wonderfully relaxed wine, ahead of a fine chalky tension and the feeling of mineral drive on the finish, with a fine subtle core of tannins. Tremendous length. A total gem and absolutely St Emilion!

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.
