Producer Note
"Beau-Site means beautiful site and lies just behind Grand Cru Château Calon-Segur on one of Medoc's highest points with fantastic views over the river Gironde. It was originally classified as a Cru Bourgeoius Superieur in 1932 but in 1966 Beau Site was reclassified as a Cru Grand Bourgeois Exceptionnel. The Castéja family, who also own Château Batailley and Château Trotte Vieille, bought the château in 1955. The château has nearly 100 hectares of vines with an average age of 35 years. BeauSite's 18th century underground cellar is one of the oldest in the Médoc and presents the perfect maturing conditions for a wine that is vinified with the same care and technique as a Grand Cru Classé. Beau-Sites wine is full of power and temperament, a typical Saint-Estèphe with tannins allowing for stocking this wine for some years." Vineyard
The vineyard sits on predominantly gravel soil which provides good drainage for the vines. The vines, which have an average age of 35 years, are trained according to the Double Guyot method and have a vine density of 5,500 per hectare. The average yields are 40 hectolitres per hectare. Winemaking
The grapes were manually sorted and destemmed before a soft pressing. The fermentation took place in temperature controlled vats with each plot vinified separately. Malolactic fermentation also took place in vat. The wine was then matured in French oak, 40% of which was new, for a period of 12 to 18 months. Tasting Note
The majority of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend yields a wine with ripe blackcurrant, cedar tree and earthy aromas. Concentrated blackcurrants continue on the palate that is fresh but smooth tannins. Lovely balance, concentration, depth and structure. Serving Suggestion
A wonderful partner to oven- roasted red and white meats or game.
