The 2020 Beausejour (Duffau Lagarrosse) is a Bordeaux Blend from the esteemed Saint Emilion region of Bordeaux, France. With its deep red color and elegant label, this wine exudes sophistication even before the first sip.

On the nose, the aromas of dark berries, plums, licorice, rose petals, and spices mingle together, creating a complex and enticing bouquet. These aromas are framed by the subtle influence of creamy new oak, adding depth and richness to the overall profile.

Upon tasting, this wine reveals its true character. It is medium to full-bodied, with a fleshy and layered texture that coats the palate. The rich core of fruit is complemented by lively acids and a chalky structure, which gives the wine a beautiful balance and a sense of finesse. The blend includes 19% Cabernet Franc and the remaining Merlot, showcasing the classic Bordeaux combination that is known for its harmonious flavors.

Renowned wine critic Jeb Dunnuck gives this wine a perfect score of 100, describing it as a "tour de force" and one of the wines of the vintage. He praises its sensationally pure bouquet of black raspberries, blueberries, scorched earth, and graphite, as well as its voluptuous mouthfeel and long finish. This is a wine that displays the density, purity, precision, and vibrancy that are the hallmarks of a truly great Bordeaux wine.

With an alcohol percentage of 14.0, this wine has the potential to age gracefully for many years to come. It is recommended to be enjoyed from 2026 to 2055, allowing it to fully develop its flavors and complexities.

In summary, the 2020 Beausejour (Duffau Lagarrosse) is a remarkable Bordeaux Blend that showcases the terroir of Saint Emilion. With its power, finesse, length, purity, and complexity, it is a wine that will impress even the most discerning wine connoisseurs.
