"92 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Beausejour (Duffau Lagarrosse) is a blend of 90% Merlot picked between 25 September and 5 October and 10% Cabernet Franc picked on 5 and 12 October. Deep, almost opaque in color, it has a seductive and very pure black cherry, crÃ¨me de cassis and vanilla-tinged bouquet that feels backward at the moment. There is a sense of opulence here but it feels as if it is being held back. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, crisp acidity, lovely balance and purity. Perhaps as I remarked from barrel, it is not endowed with the tension of the best vintages that I have encountered from the estate, but it feels long and tender in the mouth and should drink well for 20+ years. (NM) (2/2018)"
98 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "One of the undisputed stars of the vintage, the 2015 BeausÃ©jour HÃ©ritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse is dark, brooding and explosive to its core. The essence of super-ripe dark cherry, plum, graphite, crushed rocks, gravel, smoke and incense infuses a dramatic, sweeping Saint-Ã‰milion endowed with superb power and intensity. Sumptuous, spectacularly rich and also massively structured, the 2015 is going to need at least a decade to come into its own. Those lucky enough to find it are in for a treat, as the 2015 is a total stunner. Nicolas Thienpont and his team hit a number of home runs in 2015, including at BeausÃ©jour HÃ©ritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse, where both wines are simply great. Tasted two times with consistent notes. (AG) (2/2018)"
100 Points, James Suckling: "This is extraordinary. There has never been a wine like this here since the famous 1990 or underrated 1989. Violets, flowers, stones and limestone. Oyster-shell undertones. Full-bodied, muscular and so structured. A phenomenal wine that reminds me of the great Bordeaux of the 1950s. Try in 2026." 4/16 " 2/18.
96 Points, Wine Spectator: "This has some sizzle, with roasted mesquite and ebullient red licorice notes out front, as well as steak to match, featuring a core sporting ample crushed cherry, red currant and plum fruit flavors. Light tea and chalk threads skitter through the finish, where the fruit echoes nicely. This has grown a bit since the barrel tasting. Best from 2023 through 2040. (JM) (3/2018)"
