Château Beau-Site

This property certainly lives up to its name: the well-situated vineyards are on one of the Médoc’s highest points, and its neighbour is the third growth Château Calon-Ségur, one of Saint-Estèphe’s finest properties. It overlooks the Gironde estuary where 39 of the 80 hectares are planted and its early 19th-century underground cellars are among the oldest in the Médoc.

Since Philippe Casteja took over the estate in 2002, it has become increasingly impressive, and this always respectable, good-value claret now has extra weight and fruit. This is a cabernet-dominant wine, with around 60% of the blend made up of this grape, but it also has around 34% merlot, 5% cabernet franc and 1% petit verdot. Beau-Site will age well for between five and 15 years depending on the vintage.
