Chateau Haut-Beausejour, Saint-Estephe
In 1992, Jean-Claude Rouzaud, oenologist and Board Chairman of Champagne
Louis Roederer, acquired and combined two Cru Bourgeois vineyards in
the heart of the Medoc’s prestigious Saint-Estèphe appellation: Château
Picard and Château Beauséjour. Together, these properties make up what
is now called Château Haut-Beauséjour.
The wine of Château Haut-Beauséjour is vinified in traditional, large
wood vats and aged in about 35% new, French oak barrels for about 12
months. On average, close to 8,500 cases of Château Haut-Beauséjour are
produced every year. Vatting: 22-30 days.
Complex and fresh on the nose dominated by aromas of tangy, vibrant
fruit. Soft and refreshing on the palate with notes of rhubarb and
praline on the finish. Serve with lamb, red meats, cheese, truffle.
