Winemaker Notes

Tobacco and cold cinders on the nose. Long, rich palate with notes of morello cherry and blackcurrant.

JS 93
James Suckling
A generous and round-textured red here. Full to medium body. Juicy and fruity. Pretty young wine — the best from here in a long time.
Range: 92-93
D 90
Decanter
Another Pichon Comtesse estate up in St-Estèphe with a lovely ripe fruit expression. There are some tight, austere tannins right now, and the wine is a little less immediately exuberant than some, but give it a few years in bottle to flesh out. 62% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot.

Chateau Haut-Beausejour, France
Chateau Haut-Beausejour The appellation of St. Estèphe Winery Image

n 1992, Jean-Claude Rouzaud, oenologist and Board Chairman 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 Chateau Beauséjour. Together, these properties make up what is now called Chateau Haut-Beauséjour.

Chateau de Pez and Chateau Haut-Beauséjour were the first Bordeaux properties acquired by Champagne Louis Roederer in the 1990s.

St. Estephe Wine

Bordeaux, France

View all products

Deeply colored, concentrated, and distinctive, St. Estephe is the go-to for great, age-worthy and reliable Bordeaux reds. Separated from Pauillac merely by a stream, St. Estephe is the farthest northwest of the highest classed villages of the Haut Medoc and is therefore subject to the most intense maritime influence of the Atlantic.

St. Estephe soils are rich in gravel like all of the best sites of the Haut Medoc but here the formation of gravel over clay creates a cooler atmosphere for its vines compared to those in the villages farther downstream. This results in delayed ripening and wines with higher acidity compared to the other villages.

While they can seem a bit austere when young, St. Estephe reds prove to live very long in the cellar. Traitionally dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, many producers now add a significant proportion of Merlot to the blend, which will soften any sharp edges of the more tannic, Cabernet.

The St. Estephe village contains two second growths, Chateau Montrose and Cos d’Estournel.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
