Tasting Notes

    Score: 88-90

    Bright pure elderberry and cassis flavours. This has a classic directness of fruit, with well controlled tannins, a gentle touch of freshness and clean uplifting finish.

    Score: 88-90

    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.

    A nice Beaumont with generous fruit, which is a shade or two darker than in most vintages, and also some fit tannins and a long finish. This will be a notable effort for this estate and it will be sure to impress fans, too.

    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. Drink 2022-2028

Producer

Château Beaumont

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.

Region

Haut-Médoc

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.
