The satellite communes of Saint-Emilion on Bordeaux's Right Bank continue to overperform as younger generations improve vineyard care and choose lower yields and grape concentration over getting paid by the ton. One fine example is Chateau Beaulieu from the Puisseguin Saint-Emilion appellation. This wine has classic elegance with a full body supported by a muscular structure. Its firmness may surprise given its base of 90% Merlot (with 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon) yet it flows with a steady grace. Plum, black cherry fruit pair with a light oak toast and hint of cedar. This will continue to develop in bottle for the next 3-4 years, until then pop a cork as you fire up the grill!
