Château Beauséjour 2013 Héritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse - Saint-Emilion
First Grand Cru Classé since the origin of the Saint-Emilion wine classification, Château Beauséjour, Duffau-Lagarrosse heirs, has belonged to the family since 1847.
Since 2021, Joséphine Duffau-Lagarosse, representing the ninth family generation, has partnered with Prisca Courtin-Clarins of the famous Clarins house.
Joséphine fought to remain at the helm of Château Beauséjour because two other buyers had come forward. But by partnering with Prisca, they found a way to keep the estate in the family while becoming co-owners. This is a case that has been talked about a lot in the "public square" with an amount of 75 million euros.
They have a common project to work according to a "thoughtful" agriculture, putting into practice this fight for biodiversity that drives their generation: agroforestry, beehives, the return of bats, the rehabilitation of a spring to cleaning the vats etc... They have joined a duo of expert oenologists of their age: Axel Marchal and Julien Viaud (Laboratoire Rolland & associés)
Before that, since 2009 it was Stéphane de Derenoncourt and Nicolas Thienpont who participated in the development of these high quality wines.
