"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." Drinking Window 2023 - 2035, 91 Points, Jane Anson, Decanter


“Beaumont is a consistent over achiever and one of the best Haut-Médoc properties.” James Suckling


Château Beaumont has been a favourite drinking claret for many years among discerning British drinkers, the Clubs of St James’s street and our customers. Their 2018 is a revelation and the best Beaumont we have ever tasted – indeed we all re-tasted it several times to be absolutely sure – and it was even better. At under £10 a bottle (in bond) it represents fabulous value for money.


The château is under the same ownership as Château Beychevelle and Château Lagrange and receives the same attention and investment as its classified growth siblings. The 2018 has incredible structure from its cabernet sauvignon grapes (53%) and finesse and elegance from the merlot. All is in balance here – the wines will be approachable within a couple of years and will go for a good 10-15 years


 This is a wine you should buy in magnums for those special occasions as well as bottles.


Our advice to everyone – in the great vintage years (such as 2018) buy as much affordable claret as you can – this is a great example


Duty and VAT will be payable when the wine arrives in the UK, expected in late 2020.

About

The estate is located at Cussac between the communes of Margaux and Saint-Julien, on a single plot with deep sandy gravel soils. A little more than half of plantings are Cabernet Sauvignon, with the rest made up of Merlot and a small amount of Petit Verdot. The typical blend of the finished wine is broadly similar. The history of Ch. Beaumont begins in 1772, with vines first planted in 1824, followed by the construction of the Chateau itself in 1854 – one year before the famous classification of Bordeaux took place. It is now owned by the same business group that owns Ch. Beychevelle and Ch. Lagrange – Socétié Grands Millésimes de France – who have shown the same level of investment and care in raising the quality here as they have at their other more famous properties. Located on the left bank of the Gironde, between the communes of Margaux and Saint-Julien, Ch. Beaumont’s vineyards are planted to 53 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot.

"It's a brilliant wine, reminiscent of the excellent 2015 and possibly even better. It's one of my picks of the vintage in terms of its value to quality ratio, and you won't have to wait too long to drink it." 93 Points, Jane Anson, Decanter
