Winemaker's Notes

Chateau Beausejour-Duffau is one of the 13 Grand Cru Classés of Saint Emilion. The vineyard has a southwest exposition, sitting on the gentle slopes of a hill with Chateau Angelus visible at some distance. The tiny vineyard has a roughly 300 by 300 meter surface.

Critical Acclaim

"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+."
