Winemaker's Notes:

Get your 2000 Bordeaux! The vintage of the century, these wines are going fast. Here's an affordable bottle to stock up on - it will blow away most comparably priced Cabernets. This rich Bordeaux is marked by a lovely dark red color, exceptional richness, aromatic finesse, and a strong tannic structure that promises long life.

In 1992, Jean Claude Rouzaud, president of Champagne Louis Roederer, acquired and combined two Cru Bourgeois vineyards in the heart of the Medoc's Saint-Estèphe appelation: Château Picard and Château Beauséjour. Covering 46 acres, these properties make up Château Haut-Beauséjour.

My Notes:

About Château Haut-Beausejour:

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: Chateau Picard and Château Beauséjour. Together, these properties make up what is now called "Château Haut-Beauséjour."

In keeping with his passion for quality, Mr. Rouzaud made improvements in the vineyards, furnished the winery with state-of-the-art equipment, and surrounded himself with an accomplished team. Each year, Mr. Rouzaud participates in the blending of the wine himself to ensure excellence.
