The 2019 Beauséjour Héritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse is shaping up to be magnificent. A wine of tremendous breadth and power the 2019 has so much to offer. An infusion of scorched earth gravel spice menthol and blackberry makes a strong first impression. Virile and potent the 2019 offers remarkable persistence and yet retains quite a bit of finesse especially given its size. The tannins are there but they are matched by the intensity of the fruit. This is one of the most impressive wines of the year in the early going. Tasted two times.

James Suckling: 95-96 Points

A smooth red showing richness and strength. Blackberries blueberries hazelnuts and morel mushrooms. Full body and fine tannins. Solid length.

The 2019 Beauséjour (Duffau Lagarrosse) has turned out beautifully in bottle. Wafting from the glass with aromas of wild blueberries raspberries violets rose petals and forest floor framed by a deft application of creamy new oak it's medium to full-bodied seamless and layered with a lively core of fruit bright acids and fine powdery tannins concluding with a long precise saline finish. It displays all the structural refinement and vibrancy of flavor that this sector of Saint-Émilion's limestone plateau is capable of. The 2019 vintage of Beauséjour (Duffau Lagarrosse) is the last to have been vinified blended and bottled by Nicolas Thienpont and his team before Josephine Duffau-Lagarrosse took over the estate in mid-2021 blending and bottling the 2020 vintage. The wine has turned out beautifully and I'd be inclined to nominate it as the finest vintage produced during the Thienpont era. I'll be reporting in greater depth on the recent evolution of this property in due course.

Jeb Dunnuck: 95-97 Points

While I don't think the 2019 Château Beausejour (Duffau-Lagarrosse) is going to hit the heights of the 2016 (or maybe the 2018) it's still a brilliant wine from what's clearly a terrific vintage for the Right Bank. A big rich and full-bodied 2019 with a dense purple color it offers a complex brooding bouquet of black fruits chocolate crushed rock and toasted spice building tannins and a big fleshy mouthfilling profile that's going to need 3-5 years of bottle age. It reminds me a little bit of the 2012.
