Château Beausejour Duffau-Lagarosse 2013

Château Beausejour Duffau-Lagarosse 2013 I had this three different times, consistently scoring it the same. The final blend was 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc. This great terroir of over 19 acres consists of pure limestone with some clay â?" all situated on the southern slopes of St.-Emilion â?" and has been under fabulous vineyard management and winemaking hands for close to a decade or more. The 2009 and 2010 are legendary if you can still find any. Fifty-seven percent of the total production made it into this wine, which tips the scales at 14.3% natural alcohol, giving you an idea that even in a very tough vintage this terroir can still produce ripe fruit. Yields were â?" get this â?" 13 hectoliters per hectare. A huge nose of crushed chalk, licorice, blueberry liqueur, graphite and a hint of truffle and camphor jump from the glass of this opaque ruby/purple-colored wine. Medium-bodied, it doesn´t have the great depth, power and broad swath across the palate that the 2009 and 2010 possessed, but it´s still a beauty. This is elegant and should drink well in 3-4 years. This is one 2013 that may well last and improve beyond 12-15 years. 90-92/100 Punkte - Trinkreife: 2017-2032 "Tiefes Purpur, satt in der Mitte, Granatschimmer am Rand. Wunderbares, fein fruchtiges, reifes Beerenbouquet, Maulbeerentouch, Waldhimbeeren, rote, reife Kirschen, rahmige, oder zumindest milchige Fülle zeigend. Delikater, tänzerischer Gaumen, homogener Fluss, die Gerbstoffe stützen, sind aber nicht dominant und die Säure ist bereits im Extrakt integriert. Eine wunderbare Delikatesse. Erstmals ist ein Beauséjour-Duffau auch gross, ohne dass er gleich ein bombiges Jahr als Vorlage hat." 18/20 Punkte  –  Trinkreife: von 2021 bis 2043 "Dense, with plum compote, blackberry paste and toasted anise notes melded together and backed by a fresh, broad finish." 88-91 /100 Punkte "There?s an intense mineral, almost salty character to this, with dark fruits. Full body with a dense palate and a long finish. Racy and exciting to taste for the vintage." 91-92 /100 Punkte
