Red, Old World, Cabernet-based from Bordeaux, France

Full of fruit with subtle oak flavours it is perfect for meat dishes, caramelized root vegetables and hard cheeses.

Why we recommend this wine
Chateau Beaumont has long been one of our favourite, reasonably priced Bordeaux wines; a great representative of what it is.

The wine
The wine is a blend of the Cabernet Sauvignon which gives the wine its structure, Merlot which gives its smoothness and Petit Verdot provides the sparkle. The proportions of the blend vary by vintage depending on how the different varietals turned out; the 2012 has 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot but no Petit Verdot. The Merlots are very dark, almost black, fleshy with smooth tannins. The Cabernet Sauvignons have great depth with very indulgent fruit. The Petit Verdots, despite being very fruity and charming, did not have sufficient structure to make it into the blend for the first wine of Beaumont.
The wines of Château Beaumont can be appreciated for their fruit when they are still very young or can be cellared for fifteen or so years, when they will reveal all their complexity.

The wine estate
Located on the left bank of the Gironde, between the communes of Margaux and Saint-Julien, Château Beaumont draws its finesse and its delicacy from 113 ha in a single block of deep gravels which are some of the best soils of the Haut-Médoc.
Château Beaumont has opted for integrated viticulture, following the technical specifications of Terra Vitis®, aiming to produce quality grapes with the greatest respect for the environment.
It is owned by the same business group who own Châteaux Beychevelle and Lagrange – Socétié Grands Millésimes de France.
