2009 Beauséjour (Duffau), St-Emilion

SKU #1168340 100 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A blend of 77% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2009 Beausejour (Duffau Lagarrosse) is utter perfection, and man, what a wine. Deep, inky, incredibly concentrated, yet also silky and weightless, it delivers that rare mix of intensity and weightlessness on the palate. Offering layers of blackcurrants, crushed flowers, lead pencil, incense and loads of spice-box, it shows the intensity and rich of the 2009 vintage yet is perfectly balanced, has building tannins, and a huge finish. It’s as good as it gets. Give bottles another 4-5 years and enjoy over the following 2-3 decades. Inner quote mark (8/2018)

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This big wine (nearly 15% natural alcohol) is a blend of 77% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Franc and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon. It boasts an opaque blue/purple color along with a gorgeous bouquet of charcoal, incense, truffles, blackberry jam, black currants, raspberries and flowers. While enormous in the mouth, the limestone soils in which the grapes are grown give the wine good freshness as well as laser-like clarity and precision. Amazing to taste, this massive, super-concentrated powerhouse comes across as ethereal and almost feminine despite its extravagant fruit, density and richness. It is a modern day legend for sure!

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Focused power. This muscular red shows drive, yet remains graceful, with fresh plum and currant flavors, backed by mineral, tar and floral notes. The dense texture stays fresh through the sweet, spicy finish. Best from 2014 through 2030. (TM) Inner quote mark (3/2012)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Dark crimson with some evolution. Clarety nose that I'm not sure I'd put on the left bank. Very firm and dry and savoury. Not overblown and with some mineral grip on the end. Very big impression – slight hint of Ribera del Duero in its firmness and density! 17/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (4/2013)

K&L Notes

96+ points Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "The 2009 Beausejour Duffau Lagarosse is a blend of 75% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon. It is very tight on the nose compared to the others – lifted briary and wild hedgerow notes, hints of dried violet and strawberry preserve. The palate is medium-bodied with chunky ripe tannins. It feels succulent towards the finish, fanning out nicely with blackberry, boysenberry and cedar. Very focused, judicious extraction here with a great life ahead. Tasted December 2012." (7/2013)
