Chateau Beauséjour Duffau Lagarosse, St. Emilion Grand Cru Classé B 2016

About This Wine

The other half of the property eventually became what we know of as Chateau Beau-Sejour Becot today. The current owner and director of the estate is Jean Duffau Lagarrosse.

Prior to 2009, Beausejour Duffau Lagarrosse was considered a one hit wonder. Their stunning, 1990 Bordeaux wine is sought after by collectors all over the world. In fact 1990 Beausejour Duffau-Lagarrosse has earned legendary status among wine collectors due to its 100 Pt score from Robert Parker.

Parker wrote that it was one of his desert island wines. But it took almost twenty years before Beausejour Duffau-Lagarrosse produced another wine that might one day be considered close to the same level, or even better in my opinion as the 1990.

The 1990 Beausejour Duffau Lagarrosse was the product of an unintentional late harvest. The chateau either forget, or was just not ready to pick as early as they usually did. The results speak for themselves, which is why the chateau today makes it a point to harvest when they feel the fruit is ripe.
