Cassis, crushed rocks, graphite, and liquid violet notes all emerge from the 2016 Château Beauséjour, one of the magical wines in this great, great vintage. Possessing full-bodied richness, building tannin, world-class purity of fruit, and an incredible finish, it’s one of those “iron fist in a velvet glove” wines that carries awesome richness and depth, yet just glides over the palate with no sensation of weight or heaviness. This legendary Saint-Emilion needs 6-7 years of cellaring and will keep for 3-4 decades. Don’t miss this wine!

The 2016 Beauséjour Héritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse has come together beautifully since I last tasted it.

The 2016 Beauséjour Héritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse has come together beautifully since I last tasted it. Nearly seamless in the glass, the 2016 is rich, unctuous and potent, with all of its elements in the right place. Nothing really sticks out. Instead, I am simply blown away by the wine's intensity, explosive power and overall pedigree. Time in the glass brings out hints of graphite, smoke, cured meats, licorice and dark spices, but it is the wine's balance that is most impressive today. In 2016, Nicolas Thienpont and his team crafted a Beauséjour of mind-boggling intensity and purity. Tasted three times. -- Antonio Galloni

Almost opaque in color, the wine smells like you are in a flower shop on an ocean liner at sea. The freshness makes this pop. The layers of unctuous, juicy, fresh, lively fruit give it life. And the finish which hits you... Almost opaque in color, the wine smells like you are in a flower shop on an ocean liner at sea. The freshness makes this pop. The layers of unctuous, juicy, fresh, lively fruit give it life. And the finish which hits you in all the right spots truly delivers the goods for over 60 seconds! Not as hedonistic as the 2015. Instead, you find more focus, acidity, and length. This is a beauty that still sells for a song, considering the high level of quality found here. This continues improving in score since the initial barrel tastings. With a few more years in the bottle, this should hit the triple-digit mark!

The aromas of mushrooms, tobacco, vine bark, stones and black fruit. It changes so quickly and then comes back. Full-bodied and remarkably balanced, concentrated and structured. Such precision and beauty. Try after 2024.

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Beausejour (Duffau Lagarrosse) slips seductively out of the glass with perfumed scents of candied violets, chocolate-covered cherries, lavender and baked plums with nuances of redcurrants, forest floor, mossy bark and new leather. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has bags of grace and finesse with a super fine-grained frame and lovely freshness lifting the intense, perfumed fruits to a very long, mineral-tinged finished. Gorgeous. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

While this wine offers superripe fruit, it also has the freshness that comes from the vintage. It is both opulent and juicy with spice and a smoky character from the judicious wood aging. Drink this generous wine from 2025.

Wow, that is rich, tight and closed in. It is absolutely dancing with minerality, and just gets better and better on the palate. It doesn't try to force itself on you, but it certainly walks in the room five paces ahead... Wow, that is rich, tight and closed in. It is absolutely dancing with minerality, and just gets better and better on the palate. It doesn't try to force itself on you, but it certainly walks in the room five paces ahead. This is what St-Émilion can do, and could always have done if it didn't try so hard. A beautiful deep colour and pure fruit, what a lovely fresh, lifted but concentrated wine.

Dark and winey in feel, with lots of coiled-up macerated dark currant, fig paste and blackberry compote flavors laced with smoldering tobacco and alder notes, all backed by a chalky persistence through the finish. A touch austere now, but with serious length, so tuck this one away in the cellar. Best from 2023 through 2038. 1,833 cases made. — JM

There is now more mineralité and greater focus. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and a fine line of acidity, and the smooth texture belies the backbone underneath. The intense finish features small black cherries, melted tar and graphite notes. This is an excellent Saint-Émilion, though it will need several years in bottle. -- Neal Martin
