May - St-Emilion 2009

Château Beauséjour, 1er Grand Cru Classé

Restrained, pure depth of juicy blackberry, blackcurrant, chocolate and violet on the nose. Sleek and silky with vibrancy and rich, ripe, hedonistic fruit packed with flavour. Sleek fruit persists to the finish. Wonderful. 18.89pts/20
