Chateau Haut-Beausejour Saint-Estephe 2004
Bordeaux Red Blends
from St. Estephe, Bordeaux, France
In 1992, Jean-Claude Rouzaud, oenologist and president of Champagne Louis Roederer, acquired and
combined two Cru Bourgeois vineyards in the heart of the Medoc's prestigious Saint-Estèphe appellation:
Château Picard and Château Beauséjour. Together, these properties make up what is now called "Château
Blend: 52% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot and 3% Côt
The 2004 vintage has a lovely dense, deep red color. The nose is very fruit-forward, with lush red fruits on
the nose mixing with hints of spice and toastiness. The wine is lively on the palate, with all the verve and
structure that great St. Estèphes are known for. The tannins still have quite a rasp, but they are surrounded by
enough flesh and fat to sustain an impression of fullness. The wine shows harmoniously as it evolves, tinged
with toasty notes of wood and ripe red fruit. The vintage has all the class and refinement of a true St. Estèphe.
