Winery Info/ Brand
"Chateau Beausejour Duffau Lagarrosse started out life as a part of what we know of today as the Chateau Beau-Sejour Becot estate all the way back in 1847. In 1869, the 14 hectare Beau-Sejour vineyards became the property of Pierre-Paulin Ducarpe. Pierre-Paulin Ducarpe divided the estate between his two children. The chateau, plus other structures along with 50% of the vineyards went to his daughter. After she married, she assumed her husband’s name, Duffau-Lagarosse and Chateau Beausejour Duffau-Lagarosse came into being. The other half of the property eventually became what we know of as Chateau Beau-Sejour Becot today.
Region Info/ Origin
Saint-Emilion is a charming medieval village located in the heart of the famous Bordeaux wine area. It is a unique site where world-famous wineries, beautiful architecture and great monuments can be found. The legend tells a story about a monk, Emilion, from Brittany who fled from his hometown in Vannes to seek refuge in the eighth century. Living the life of a hermit, he accomplished a few miracles and rapidly became famous in the region and even far beyond its border. Even after his death his followers carried on his legacy and even named the town after his name. From the ninth century to the 19th century, men had the will to mine the soil in order to standardise the whole architectural looking of not only the city of Saint-Emilion but also a few ones in the region (such as Right Banc Bordeaux).
