2015 Beauregard, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1261099 95 points James Suckling

 Impressive and deep-set plums, cherries and violets, not to mention licorice and lightly spicy oak-derived accents, meet with mocha on the nose. The palate has a really impressive core of fleshy, bright red-plum and blueberry flavors all wrapped in supple tannins that have freshness and effortless depth. Try from 2022.  (2/2018)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Beauregard has a lovely fragrant, earth-inspired nose with a core of black raspberries, warm mulberries and plum preserves plus touches of garrigue and violets. Medium-bodied, soft and beautifully elegant with amazing freshness and energy, it finishes long and minerally. (LPB)  (2/2018)

 The 2015 Beauregard has turned out better than I had originally expected. Today, I see a wine of notable textural richness and far better balance than en primeur. Most, if not all, of that can be attributed to the work the winemaking team did in tweaking the blend. Sumptuous and racy to the core, the 2015 is gorgeous today. The more floral/savory element of the Franc that was so evident during aging has softened considerably. This is an impressive debut for the first vintage under the management of the Cathiard family. Black cherry, chocolate, new leather and spice notes add to the wine's succulent, inviting personality. Tasted three times. (AG)  (2/2018)

 I tasted the 2015 Château Beauregard on two separate occasions and it’s a medium to full-bodied, elegant 2015 that has lots of Cabernet Franc showing in its pretty red and black fruits, spring flower, leafy herbs and toasty oak aromas and flavors. Possessing fine tannin, a terrific floral character, nicely integrated acidity, and a great finish, give bottles a few years and enjoy through 2035. It’s worth noting that this estate was recently purchased by the Moulin family and the estate is seeing a complete renovation.  (11/2017)

88-91 points Wine Spectator

 Engaging, with a juicy core of plum and anise, backed by a bolt of fruitcake. Shows good energy overall. Should be a crowd-pleaser. (JM, Web Only-2016)

 Dark lustrous crimson. Bought by Smith Haut Lafitte and Galeries Lafayette family. Debut vintage. Floral nose. Polished. Dry finish but lots of attention clearly went into this wine! There's an Edinburg rock quality. (JR)  (4/2016)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

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.
Country:

France

- 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.
