Goedhuis, April 2016,
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.
Neal Martin, July 2019,
The 2015 Beaumont feels quite sophisticated on the nose with wild strawberry and subtle pressed flower scents. The palate is medium-bodied with firm grip and fine tannin, plus plenty of classic tobacco-infused fruit on the finish. This is a superb wine from Beaumont. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.
Neal Martin, April 2016,
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.
Antonio Galloni, April 2016,
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.
James Suckling, April 2016,
A firm and silky red with chocolate, berry and chewy aromas and flavors. Medium body. Straightforward finish.
Decanter, April 2016,
Concentrated cassis fruit – more class than expected, and will show very well. The best Beaumont so far.
Matthew Jukes, April 2016,
Simple, forward, clean and fruity this is a clean and rather obvious wine and it does the job well in an entry level manner.
Jancis Robinson, April 2016,
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
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.
