Tasting Notes
92/100 - HK Tatler (J. Suckling)
This is really excellent, with super-fine tannins and a long, long finish. Beautiful and fruity, yet firm and powerful. Really like the quality of the tannins. Nutty.

My first wine memory
When I was 7 : my first tasting lesson with my grand-father Borie in the cellars.

One word to describe my wine
Made to give a moment of pleasure to anyone who tastes it.

The history of the Château
Château BEAU SITE is one of the most ancient estate from the well-known area of SAINT-ESTEPHE. Located on the tophill of the town, as its name mentions it, it is exceptionally placed on the banks of the Gironde river, with a full-south exposure, on the hill facing Calon Segur. The vines, whose old stocks were carefully kept, grow on its gravely hills and produce wines of great distinction, elegant and complete, as worthy as the ones from its famous neighbour.

Food pairings for my wine
Red meat, cheese
