The Château Beauséjour Héritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse is synonymous with the continuity and durability of a know-how within the Saint-Emilion vineyard. Its history dates back to 1847 when it was acquired by the Duffau-Lagarrosse family. Today, JosépHine Duffaut-Lagarrosse is the 8th generation at the helm, associated with the Courtin-Clarins family since 2021, allowing it to maintain its great reputation, reconciling tradition, technical progress and modernity. It is in this approach of ever more precise quality that they are advised by Nicolas Thienpont and oenologist Stéphane Derenonocourt.
The Château Beauséjour Héritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse has been a Premier Grand Cru Classé since the creation of the Saint-Emilion classification in 1955, a position it has always maintained.
The Château Beauséjour Héritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse watches over a vineyard of a little less than 7 hectares of vines, implanted on the hillside of the village of Saint-Emilion on clay-limestone soils. An adequate geographical situation where the wind and the sunshine make an extremely qualitative soil. The grape varieties are 81% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines are aged for 12 to 14 months in French oak barrels, 55 to 60% of which are new.
The Château Beauséjour Héritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse produces a sublime nectar, structured, elegant and of great aromatic finesse.
