"The Dupuy family has been in the village of Puisseguin since the Middle Ages. Marceau Dupuy, both a doctor and a man of politics, purchased Chateau Beauséjour, located right in the center of the village, in 1934. It remains today as it was then, 18 hectares of vineyard on the clay and limestone plateau of Saint Emilion planted with 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. Marceau’s son Alain, upon returning from the war in 1945, took control over Beauséjour as well as another family property, Chateau Langlais. This second estate, belonging to Alain’s maternal grandfather, is also located in the appellation of Puisseguin St Emilion. The vineyards, 12 hectares in all, lie just east of Chateau Beauséjour and are planted with Merlot (70%), Cabernet Franc (25%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (5%)." - Importer's notes
