THE WINE

Merlot 80% - Cabernet Franc 20% 

The color is dark, practically opaque, with a purplish reflection. The nose is focused on black fruits (blackcurrant and blackberry), crushed raspberry, and spices. The oak is subtle so as not to take away from the grace of the fruit. The wine feels supple in your mouth and finishes with warm spices and bright fruit.

THE WINERY

Total wine estate acreage: 37 acres (15 ha) including 30 acres (12 ha) of vines.
Vine density: 2225 vines per acre 
Average age of the vines: 55 years.
Soil and subsoil: Chalky-clay on a limestone base.
The grape varieties: Merlot 70%, Cabernet Franc 30%.

"Château Beauséjour" is situated on the left bank of the Dordogne River, at the top of the Montagne Saint Émilion hillside, 2.5 miles (4 km) from Saint Émilion.

This estate is the perfect example of the appellation, both due to the imposing appearance and prestigious look of the buildings (castle and chai) and to the outstanding location of the vineyard, stretching from outside Saint Martin's church (12th- century Romanesque church, in the heart of Montagne village) to the five mills of Calon.

The age of the vines (some plots were planted in 1901, 1902, 1934, and 1946!) and this outstanding chalky-clay soil produce a distinctive wine, ideal for aging, magnificently produced following the guidelines laid down by Stéphane Derenoncourt since the vintage 2005.
