Tasting Note:

It would seem a given that Joséphine Duffau-Lagarrosse would hold the keys to Beauséjour Duffau Lagarosse, an estate that has been in her family since 1847. However, it was only a last-minute bid by herself and the Courtin (Clarins) family that secured ownership in 2021. Josephine is a well-travelled and thoughtful winemaker who has already had a positive effect. Produced from one 6.8 Ha block next to Canon, the 2021 is produced from 73% Merlot and 27% Cabernet Franc from yields of 28 hl/ha. Perfumed and composed. We like the energy and clarity here. Transparency of flavour matched to density of tannins. You feel the limestone on the finish. Persistence and dynamism, beautiful red fruits, lots of fine mineral chalkiness, poised and tense but with plenty of flesh. There's an easy harmony here, with a plump middle and a salty finish. A very successful wine!
