About

Ratings:

92

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.

90-92 Jeb Dunnuck - jebdunnuck.com

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.

91 James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com

Crushed blackberry, blackcurrant leaf, lavender, clove and licorice on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with firm, fine-grained tannins. Structured with savory and leafy notes on the finish. Try from 2024.

91 Decanter

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.
