Château Beauséjour Fronsac 2019
The same family has owned Château Bel-Air in Pomerol since 1914 and now into the 5 generation of ownership under the Melet family.
A 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc blend, Château Beauséjour typically sees a portion of the wine aged for 12-18 months in seasoned French oak barrels. An excellent entry level Bordeaux from the superb 2019 vintage. Presents a beautiful flamboyant dark garnet color. A warm, attractive, bouquet with blackberry and spice aromas. Quite round on the palate, with fine tannins. Tremendous value and very easy drinking here!
