    A new owner, new winery, but the same winemaking team and possibly Vincent Priou’s greatest success during his many years running the estate. Striking ruby colour, this is a suave and sophisticated wine, with pure red berry flavours. Very graceful and deliciously giving at the end. Top class!

    The 2015 Beauregard has an intense bouquet with black cherries, boysenberry and smoky/tobacco aromas, more precocious than some of its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with gentle grip, foursquare and conservative in style and yet I appreciate its delineation and poise, with a persistent and mineral-driven finish. This is a very good performance and suggests some melioration in bottle. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.

    The 2015 Beauregard shows a more intensely earthy, savory side of Pomerol. Hints of iron, smoke, tobacco and leather are nicely delineated in the glass. Pliant and succulent, the 2015 shows plenty of raciness, while the significant presence of Cabernet Franc (25%) in the blend comes through in the wine's floral, savory aromatic finish. Beauregard is not a huge wine, but it does appear to have considerable latent potential. Needless to say, it will be interesting to see what Daniel and Florence Cathiard, along with the technical team led by Fabien Teitgen, do here over the coming years. Tasted two times.

    Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Beauregard has a lovely fragrant, earth-inspired nose with a core of black raspberries, warm mulberries and plum preserves plus touches of garrigue and violets. Medium-bodied, soft and beautifully elegant with amazing freshness and energy, it finishes long and minerally. Lisa Perrotti Brown Score 93/100 Drink Dates 2019 - 2039

    This is really exotic with bright blackberry, blueberry and chocolate aromas and flavors. Lots of walnuts. Full body, extra soft and silky tannins. Best I have tasted from here. 90% merlot and 10% cabernet franc.

    The estate has moved up a gear with this vintage and with new ownership. Bright fruit with lift and fragrance. Purity and precision on the palate; opulence as well. Refined tannins.

    (95 Merlot, 5 Cabernet Franc) | 50% new oak. | 14.5% alc. Neither too oaky, nor too green, this is a confusing wine because the astringency is pervasive and this must be accountable to over-extraction and raw tannins. The fruit, or rather what I can sense of the fruit, is aromatic and enjoyable. The question is, will it shed its tannic, oaky cloak before the fruit gives up the game? I doubt it.

    Dark lustrous crimson. Bought by Smith Haut Lafitte and Galeries Lafayette family. Debut vintage. Floral nose. Polished. Dry finish but lots of attention clearly went into this wine! There's an Edinburg rock quality. Drink 2023-2033

    The change of ownership in 2015 - enter Florence and Daniel Cathiard - has given this property a shot in the arm. It’s a grassy, leafy, Cabernet Franc-influenced Pomerol with scented oak, bright acidity and a voluptuous mid palate. Drink: 2020-28

Producer

Château Beauregard

Located on the southern end of Pomerol's plateau, Château Beauregard is renowned for being one of the most beautiful estates in the region, created by a student of Victor Louis, the architect of the city of Bordeaux's Grand Théâtre. Beauregard has over 40 acres of vineyard land which is planted with 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. For many years, the estate was owned by the Clauzel family which sold the property in 1991 to Crédit Foncier de France who has heavily invested in the vineyards and chai enabling the true quality of their fruit to shine through.

Region

Pomerol

The small sub-region of Pomerol is situated north-east of the industrious city of Libourne. Pomerol's soils are predominately iron-rich clay with a smattering of gravel that produce wines with extraordinary power and depth. As a result of this clay-dominance, it has the highest percentage of Merlot planted in all of Bordeaux. Certain châteaux are produced exclusively from this grape, but most incorporate smaller quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc as well. Despite its hefty (if not exclusive) proportion of Merlot, many people think of wines from this region as separate entities. As one wine aficionado stated recently, "It's not Merlot. It's Pomerol." Despite the region's small size, Pomerol contains some of the world's most sought after (and expensive) wines including Pétrus, Le Pin, Lafleur, l'Evangile and Vieux Château Certan. Unlike other Bordelais subregions, there is no system of classification. The châteaux are traded on reputation alone.
