Blended from a variety of different grapes grown on the estate, Chateau Haut-Beausejour contains 52% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot and 3% Cot.

After the assemblage, the wine is left to develop for 12 months in barrels made from oaks grown in central France, 30% of which are new. The wine rests for a further 12 months in the bottle before being finally marketed.

Appearance: Lovely dense, deep red colour.

Nose: Very fruit-forward, lush red fruits on the nose mixing with hints of spice and toastiness.

On the palate: Lively on the palate with all the verve and structure that great St. Estephe are known for. The tannins still have quite a rasp but they are surrounded by enough flesh and fat to sustain an impression of fullness. The wine shows harmoniously as it evolves, tinged with toasty notes of wood and ripe red fruit.

All the class and refinement of a true St. Estephe.
