Chateau Haut-Beausejour St Estephe 2014
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-Estephe appellation: Chateau Picard and Chateau Beausejour. Together, these properties make up what is now called Chateau Haut-Beausejour.
The wine of Chateau Haut-Beausejour is vinified in traditional, large wood vats and aged in about 35% new, French oak barrels for about 12 months.
Tobacco and cold cinders on the nose. Long, rich palate with notes of morello cherry and blackcurrant. Fine supple tannins and fresh acidity add energy and poise to the wine.
