Château Beau-Site - Saint-Estèphe 2016


Château Beau-Site – whose meaning is ‘beautiful site’ – was very highly regarded in the mid-19th century, but the owner never submitted samples to the brokers in charge of the classification of 1855, so the estate was overlooked. Owned by Borie-Manoux since 1955, considerable efforts and investments have been made in this Cru Bourgeois property. Beau-Site’s 18th century underground cellar is one of the oldest in the Médoc and presents the perfect maturing conditions for a wine that is vinified with the same care and technique as a Grand Cru Classé.

Dark, ruby red in appearance, Château Beau-Site displays aromas of tobacco leaf, leather and blackcurrant on the nose. The palate is savory and herbal with an earthy minerality and hints of tobacco smoke.
