A revelation. We had heard that some of the Cru Bourgeois were amazing but this one is exceptional. Tasted alongside 30 or 40 other wines of similar ilk the Chateau Beaumont really stood out.
Rich, deep purple colour and aromas of black fruits, red cherries, pencil shavings and soft spice. The palate is warm, full-bodied with wonderfully integrated, deep black fruit and spice flavours backed up by wonderfully soft oak and tannins. Throw loads of this in your cellar and start drinking it in 2024 and you will still be wowing your friends at dinner parties well into the 30's!

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Beaumont leaps from the glass with vibrant black and red cherries and warm cassis notes plus an undercurrent of bay leaves, lavender and pencil shavings. Full-bodied, firm and grainy, the mid-palate is taut and muscular with plenty of energy and an herbal lift on the finish.

Firm, deep and well extracted, this is a rich purple colour with sweet blackberry fruits on the nose along with some gentle spicing. It`s an elegant and extremely classic Médoc wine. The tannins are already smooth and starting to integrate with the fruits. The quality bodes well for the medium-priced wines in this vintage. One of the value picks of the Médoc.

47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot; 38% new oak. Barrel sample. Inky dark with purple rim. There`s a pretty fruit sweetness on the nose and a touch of vanilla, much less severe than the Moulis and Listrac wines just tasted. Well balanced on the palate too, for a tannic wine, and more refined texture on the finish. Dry but not drying.
