Chateau Beausejour Fronsac

$15.00

Overview

Château Beauséjour is situated on the left bank of Dordogne River, at the top of the Montagne Saint Émilion hillside, 2.5 miles (4 km) from Saint Émilion. The various vineyard plots are named Paradis, Clos de l'Église, Clos 1901, Moulin, Caillou... and all of them have the characteristic of being located on the mountaintop of Montagne. They are composed of a 8 to 20 inches (20 to 50 cm) deep chalky-clay soil, laid on a fissured limestone base (the subsoil is full of quarries from which stones were used to build Bordeaux and Libourne in the previous centuries) which redistributes water (drop by drop!) to the vines during the summer.
 
Beauséjour is 100% old vine Marlot - has high-toned aromas and flavors of blackberry, blueberry, purple flowers and wild herbs, with lovely hints of graphite & cedar. A beautifully balanced cold weather red with real purity to its dark berry core, a medium-to-full body with fleshy dark fruits, dusty tannins & a silky smooth finish.
