50% Cabernet Sauvignon 47% Merlot 3% Petit Verdot. Sweet raspberry compote notes on the nose find a match in the restrained palate which reins the wine back in to an overall elegant style. This is a very well judged expression of the vintage, and should be a joy to drink.
The 2015 Beaumont has a more floral bouquet compared to other Haut-Médoc barrel samples: well-defined with subtle cold granite scents percolating through the red berry fruit. The palate is fresh and crisp with fine tannin, plus there is satisfying depth of fruit. It is your classic Bordeaux here, the kind of bottle you happily find on your dinner table and is finished down to the last drop. This is a well-made, straight down the line Claret that is probably overlooked these days. I would buy a couple of cases and just enjoy them with Claret-lovers over the next decade.
Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois annual tasting, the 2015 Beaumont has a more exotic bouquet than its peers with red cherries, wild strawberry and pressed flowers. It gains more and more refinement as it aerates. The palate is medium-bodied with a structured opening, the tannin enrobed with clean and pure blackberry and raspberry fruit, leading to a dense finish that just needs to attain more detail. Good potential. Tasted September 2017. Neal Martin Score 90/100 Drink Dates 2020 - 2035
Dark crimson. Light but very correct nose. Quite robust. Just a tad stodgy but everything is there. Chunky tannins on the end. Drink 2017-2021
A firm and silky red with chocolate, berry and chewy aromas and flavors. Medium body. Straightforward finish.
A dark, brooding wine, the 2015 Beaumont is full of character and personality. Tobacco, scorched earth, black cherry and licorice are some of the signatures in a hearty, pleasantly rustic Haut-Médoc that will deliver excellent drinking, especially at the dinner table.
Concentrated cassis fruit – more class than expected, and will show very well. The best Beaumont so far.
Simple, forward, clean and fruity this is a clean and rather obvious wine and it does the job well in an entry level manner.
Since 1986 when this property was purchased by two insurance companies, Château Beaumont has been producing some of the best value Cru Bourgeois available in Bordeaux.
The Haut-Médoc is an appellation within the Médoc that stretches along the left bank of the Gironde from Blanquefort in the south to the north of Bordeaux. The region encompasses the more famous communes of St-Estèphe, Pauillac, St-Julien and Margaux. Following the 1855 classification many of its most famous estates were classified and scored as first, second, third, fourth or fifth growths. This was based on their social and commercial positions at the time. Most of these classed growths use the village appellation name, such as Pauillac. However five of these classed growths fell outside a village appellation so take the name Haut-Médoc. Many of the vineyards which are classified as Haut-Médoc may actually also be referred to as Cru Bourgeois wines. These wines have lower permitted yields and so offer great value for money.
