Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon/Petit Verdot/Malbec * 75cl * 14% ABV * Bordeaux, France
Since 1992, Haut-Beausejour in Saint-Estephe has been in the Louis Roederer portfolio. The Champagne house combined two properties with great potential and quickly set about renovating both the cellars and cuverie. Roundness and finesse come from the Merlot (52%), tannic structure and richness provided by Cabernet Sauvignon (40%), and a splash of Petit Verdot (3%) and Malbec (5%) to add complexity. This is fruit-forward and rounded with a profile of sweet, juicy cherries. Open and soft and ready to drink upon release. Drink to 2028.
