Merlot based, certified organic, powerful with a firm body.
Chateau Beausejour has been owned and operated by the Dupuy family since 1934 and became certified organic in the late nineties. Made from 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, aged for 15 months in oak, 30% of which is new, this is a Bordeaux on the more powerful end of things. Dark, rich with fruit, spice and black tea. Big mouth fell with some chewy tannin on the finish. Needs meat or richly flavored foods and a nice decanting would not hurt either.
