- Tasting Notes
Another brilliant wine of great nobility and finesse, the 2011 Beausejour-Duffau reveals a saturated chalky minerality as well as plenty of blue and black fruits, and fabulous precision and purity. It possesses a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel and a distinctive/singular style only possessed by the greatest wines. Give it 4-5 years of cellaring and drink it over the following two decades. It promises to be one of the longest lived wines of the vintage. At 14.7% alcohol, this is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.

Deep inky purple. Aromas of dark cherry, plum and blackcurrant are lifted by violet and mineral nuances. Silky on entry, then tight and bright in the middle, with very good energy to the red cherry, blackcurrant syrup and sweet spice flavors. The broad, extremely long finish offers refined tannins and very pure mineral and floral nuances.
