Chateau Beausejour Cuvee Cab Franc-earth, minerals and terroir
It is truly rare today to discover vineyards that have literally never been subjected to any chemical pesticide or herbicide. Stroll through the vineyards at either Beauséjour or Langlais and you will quickly see that there is a complete and harmonious ecosystem in place. In the spring, each year, there are fragile tulips growing among the vines, a clear sign that there is balance and life in the soils.
Today it is Gerard Dupuy, Alain’s son, who is continuing the family’s rich history in Puisseguin St Emilion.
"This cuvée is 100% Cabernet Franc and was vinified and bottled with zero added SO2 - it's a truly unique and distinctive Bordeaux showing complex aromas of red currant, cassis, coffee, earth and roast meats. The palate shows lovely round cassis fruit, with hints of mint, earth and minerals, finishing with a real taste of the terroir. Highly recommended for lovers of natural wines, it's Bordeaux like it used to be! " David Lillie
