Winemaker's Notes

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 Haut-Beauséjour."

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.
