Château Beaumont 2016, Haut-Medoc
£21.95 per bottle
BLEND- 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot
"The 2016 Beaumont has quite a powerful bouquet with dense black fruit, boysenberry and cedar, traces of pencil lead developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite spicy compared to its peers, then it reins everything back in for what is a refined finish. Classy stuff, but I would afford this a couple of years in bottle. Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois tasting in London."
Neal Martin, vinous.com, October 2018
Located between St Julien and Margaux, Château Beaumont aims to produce a rich and crowd pleasing wine. They have hired consultant Eric Boissenot, a renown oenologist in Bordeaux who is involved in many estates, in order to do so and the results are promissing.
Nose full of fresh red and black fruits with subtle hints of spice. The palate is beautifully balanced, with stunning rich black fruits and full, fine and ripe tannins.
