2014 Beauséjour (Duffau), St-Emilion

SKU #1308504 97 points Vinous

Outer quote mark An utterly spellbinding wine, the 2014 Beauséjour Héritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse is also one of the unqualified successes of the vintage. Beams of tannin give the 2014 its ample, broad feel. Inky red cherry, blueberry, smoke, leather and tobacco fill out the wine's big frame effortlessly. Layers of intense fruit meld into a huge spine of tannin in a vertical, massively structured Saint-Émilion. So many 2014s are charming and accessible, but this is not one of them. Readers will have to be patient. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2017)

Outer quote mark The 2014 Château Beausejour Duffau-Lagarrosse is fabulous stuff and well worth seeking out. Made from close to 100% Merlot (there’s a splash of Cabernet Franc) and offering classic notes of damp earth, tobacco leaf, blackcurrants, and beautiful minerality, this beauty hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a terrific core of fruit, and more texture and opulence than most in the vintage.

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark So layered with a lovely richness of chocolate, wet earth and spices, not to mention plum character. Full-bodied, tight and focused. Needs five to six years to open, but it’s a structured and beautiful wine already. Inner quote mark (2/2017)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is full of muscular graphite and tobacco notes, holding sway over a core of slightly exotic mulled fig and warm black currant sauce. A ganache edge lines the finish, but a pure fruit detail echoes longest. This will be exceptional when the elements meld fully. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2017)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Lively, well-balanced and well-behaved nose. Thick and confident. Lots of length but a bit Oxford marmalade-like. Overall satisfying though. Youthful. (JR) 17/20 points Inner quote mark (2/2018)

K&L Notes

93 points, Neal Martin in Vinous: "The 2014 Beauséjour Héritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse is a perplexing wine just after bottling but it appears to have settled. Here, it has a gorgeous bouquet with fine mineral-driven red berry fruit, a slight floral scent developing with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, quite stocky and full in the mouth, tightening in towards the finish but retaining freshness and vibrancy. This Saint-Émilion is loaded with potential. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting." (03/2018)
