2008 Beausejour Duffau Lagarosse

Average critic rating : 89.25 points



The closed, austere 2008 represents the old school philosophy of winemaking employed at Beausejour-Duffau before Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt controlled the viticulture and winemaking starting in 2009. A 21,000-bottle blend of 70% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Franc and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2008 exhibits high tannin, medium body and an impressively elegant style. It is already revealing the nobility of this exquisite vineyard. However, the wine does not possess the extra gear of aromatic and flavor dimensions to merit an outstanding review. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 15-20. Wine Advocate.May, 2011



Sweet tobacco, berry and plum character on the nose follows through to a full body with sweet fruit and velvety, refined tannins. Pretty wine already. Stéphane Derenoncourt took the estate over and made the blend of this wine. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2009
