Close to an even split of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, with 8% Petit Verdot, the 2018 Château Beaumont sports a deep purple color as well as impressive notes of blackcurrants, smoke tobacco and graphite. It's rich, nicely concentrated, has present, ripe tannin, plenty of depth, and a great finish.

Under the same management as Château Beychevelle in Saint-Julien, this estate is now showing its fine potential. The balance between Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot means vivid fruits as well as rich tannins. The wine should develop well but it will be best to wait until 2024.
