Château Beaumont, Haut-Medoc 2020
Available En Primeur
We will shortly be closing our en primeur offer on Château Beaumont 2020 at a mere £8.75 a bottle in bond. This is the best known (and loved) affordable of all the Médocs Cru Bourgeois and is to be found in most good Clubs, fine restaurants and the cellars of claret drinkers throughout Great Britain. Coming from the same stable as Château Beychevelle, it is a wine of great charm and consistency that always punches above its weight as it has done in the exceptional 2020 vintage. My advice is here is simple - buy as much as you can.
Finally, how well does it age? Here is a note from Matthew, a member of our team, who has been drinking his Beaumont 2010 and it shows just how well it tastes after 10 years: It really opens up and gains both weight and character after an hour, or even two, in the decanter. In the glass, still a vigorous dark ruby despite 10 years of age. On the nose chunky dark fruit, plums and blackberries. And this continues on the palate, dark fruits, spice, refreshing acidity and a faint hint of baked fruit. I think it still has a few years of good drinking ahead!

How does this wine taste?
Perpetual over-achiever, Château Beaumont has again scored a home run in 2020. The nose is supremely pretty, offering fresh crushed morello cherry and strawberry, whilst the delivery is one of attractive generosity. The palate is awash with blackberry, sweet cherry and cassis flavours. Luxurious, direct and offering a refreshing crystaline fruit component, Beaumont should find a home in everyones cellar this vintage.
What do the critics say?
"The 2020 Beaumont is dark dark, fleshy and wonderfully expressive. Charcoal, scorched earth, lavender and spice give this dark, plummy Haut-Médoc Cru Bourgeois Superieur so much character and personality. Expressive spice and floral notes reappear on the long, beautifully articulated finish. This is a winner. Drink 2026-2040."
