"This is a true treasure from Bordeaux. The quality of this wine is simply outrageous. This wine has great raspberry, strawberry, cherry and black currant flavors with great minerality and a hint of leather. The finish is rather long and silky smooth. This is a true 'sleeper' wine at a price hard to understand after you try it for the first time!" -Importer
"The wines of Château Beaumont are characterized by their supple, feminine structure, which is often silky. The tannins are generally mellow and rarely aggressive. All this contributes to making the wine full of charm and finesse. It can be tasted young, except for certain vintages which absolutely must be allowed to rest for a few years in the cellar. It highlights the dominance of Cabernet Sauvignon on this land which is reputed to be among the best for growing this varietal...It is typical of the excellent Garonne gravel ridges which make up the land of the estate and thus the treasure of Beaumont." -Winery
"Positioned on the left bank of the Garonne, between Saint-Julien and Margaux, Château Beaumont draws its finesse and delicate qualities from the deep gravel of the best soils in the Haut-Médoc. Château Beaumont has chosen to produce wine using Integrated Farming according to the Terra Vitis specifications, which aim to produce quality grapes with the greatest respect for the environment." -Winery
This wine was scored 85 Points by the Wine Spectator.
