PARALLEL WINETASTINGS OF PUISSEGUIN SAINT-EMILION
During the 2016 Saint-Emilion Portes Ouvertes, Gérard Dupuy and his team will start with a visit of the basements and the cellars of Château Beauséjour. Within the building, you will discover the many oak barrels for the ageing of the wines. Next, there will be tastings of 2009 and 2013 vintages of Château Langlais.

“For us, every vintage is different. They each have their characteristics.
Most important to the consumer, it is the standard of quality. We always put the bar high on the production of our wines”.
