This is very driven and intense with so much limestone and salt character on the palate. Dark fruits, too. Linear and chewy, especially on the long finish. Beautiful center palate of fruit.

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Beausejour Heritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse is slightly closed, revealing glimpses at bright, cheery black cherries, black berries and wild blueberries with very serious preserved plums, licorice and mocha in the background and a waft of fragrant soil. Medium to full-bodied, it has a firm frame of ripe tannins and seamless freshness supporting the subdued, earthy layers, finishing long and minerally. It should be wonderfully long-lived but will need time to enjoy!

94-96 points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate (Issue # 236 - Apr 2018)

This is a smoky, structured wine that also has plenty of ripe black fruits. It is richly constructed: dense with enough solid tannins and a rich background to give the wine longevity. Drink from 2025.

Of the three properties under the helm of Nicolas Thienpont, the 2017 Beausejour Duffau-Lagarrosse offers the most richness and depth. Blueberries, crème de cassis, graphite, violets, crushed rocks, and spring flowers notes all give way to a structured, vibrant, fresh, yet tannic red that's going to need 3-4 years of bottle age but might end up being one of the top wines of the vintage. Tasted twice. This beauty is made from 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc that was brought in between the 22nd of September and 2nd of October, with yields of 38 hectoliters per hectare (this is 64% of the production). There’s roughly 1,500 cases produced.

A rich, explosive wine, the 2017 Beauséjour Héritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse hits the palate with serious depth and intensity. Charcoal, smoke, crushed rocks, lavender, incense and blackberry jam are all beautifully delineated in a vivid, arrestingly beautiful Saint-Émilion of the highest level. Huge, searing tannins are going to need many years to soften. Beauséjour Héritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse is one of the most structured, tannic Saint-Émilions of the vintage. Tasted three times.

93-96 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous (May 2018)

Intense, with juicy layers of fig, boysenberry and blackberry compote coursing through. Bramble and spice notes fire up on the finish, which kicks in with an extra bolt of energy at the end. A showy wine that pulls it off.
