2009 Beauregard, Pomerol

SKU #1085397 93 points James Suckling

 Wonderful aromas of blueberries, blackberries and dark chocolate, follow through to a full body, with super well-integrated tannins and bright gorgeous dark fruits. Wonderful length too. One of the best wines from here in a number of years. Best in 2016. (JS)  (2/2012)

90 points Vinous

 Good full ruby. Inviting nose shows pinot-like aromas of fresh raspberry, strawberry, violet and underbrush, plus a whiff of leather. Easygoing and sweet, with pliant flavors of black cherry, dark berries and smoky underbrush given adequate lift and precision by sound acids. Finishes with round, chocolatey tannins and good length. Not particularly gripping, but offers the charm of Pomerol merlot. (ID)  (5/2010)

90 points Wine Spectator

 This powerful red delivers dark flavors of smoke, tobacco, mineral and game, with a core of plum and blackberry in a polished texture. Shows austere character, but balanced and focused. Drink now through 2020. (TM)  (3/2012)

89 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 An elegant, mid-weight Pomerol with sweet licorice, plum, mocha and raspberry fruit, this wine is generously endowed, with lots of silky glycerin coating the palate. I’m sure the alcohol hits 14% plus. This is more finessed than powerful Pomerol, so drink it over the next 10-15 years. (RP)  (2/2012)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Bright red-ruby. Cherry, plum, leather, mocha and licorice on the nose. A supple, harmonious midweight with ripe acidity and a restrained sweetness to its plum, berry and smoky oak flavors. Tannins are a touch dusty but there's good finishing fruit. (ST)  (7/2012)

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the Médoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
