2016 Château Haut-Beauséjour  (St. Estèphe) 89
Medium bodied with dark red fruits, spice and herbs on the nose, this wine offers forward, sweet, juicy cherries, round fruits and softness in the texture. This opened-styled wine should be just about ready on release.

2010 Château Haut-Beauséjour  (St. Estèphe) 88
2010 Haut Beausejour With 53% Merlot and 47% Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend, this well-priced St. Estephe wine combines smoke, espresso bean, red and black fruit and hints of spice for a wine with freshness, backbone and a fair price. A top value Bordeaux wine pick from St. Estephe. 88-90 Pts

2009 Château Haut-Beauséjour  (St. Estèphe) 89
Beausejour is another value play from the vintage. From a terroir located close to Phelan Segur, this is a supple style of wine and should drink well early.

2008 Château Haut-Beauséjour  (St. Estèphe) 85
Mature, developed, pleasant, spicy, earthy, red berry oriented wine that\'s easy to drink. If you have a bottle or two, it is time to drink up.

2005 Château Haut-Beauséjour  (St. Estèphe) 83
Surprisingly light, with a bright, red fruit, earth and spice character. This is already fully mature and requires drinking sooner than later, as there is not much going on now, and I suspect there will be less going on here in the future. Subsequent vintages from 2009 forward have been much better wines that are also more age-worthy.

Medium bodied, earthy, light in fruit, but with nice, tobacco, tinged, red fruit aromatics, the wine is just past full maturity and needs to be consumed sooner than later.
