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.

Tasting Notes
Attractive nose offering notes of strawberry and raspberry. Long palate with precise tannins and lingering notes of liquorice and black fruits on the finish.

Harvest Notes
Despite all of the surprises, fears and doubts, 2016 turned out to be a remarkable vintage. The growing cycle took place in perfect conditions up until some extremely dry weather in July, leading to worries over low yields. The rain and associated fungal diseases that are usually feared turned out to work for the winemaking team from mid-July to mid-September, enabling the vine to reach optimum ripeness levels.

The wines are distinctive and exceptionally precise yet also dense and restrained. Some may draw similarities to the extremely dense yet ethereal Bordeaux wines of the 1980s, with an excellent aging potential yet able to be enjoyed in their youth.

Food Pairing
Pairs beautifully with hearty meat dishes, from beef stews to lamb, veal, or roast chicken with mushrooms. The suggested serving temperature is 60F.

Critical Acclaim:
91 points - James Suckling
"A juicy young wine with dark-berry and walnut character. Full body, juicy fruit and a flavorful finish."

90 points - Wine Spectator
"Features alluring, gently mulled damson plum and cherry fruit, with enticing red tea and floral notes darting throughout. A light chalky echo permeates the finish, adding length and grace. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2028. Tasted twice, with consistent notes."
