2016 Château Beauregard - Rotwein
5/15/2017 Le Figaro - L LE FIGARO - L'AVIS DU VIN (CLUB VIN) : 17 / 20 Nez de fruits rouges profonds, boisé encore marqué, griotte, floral. Bouche fraîche, ample, fruitée, finale graphite, tanins amples, belle fraîcheur. 5/10/2017 Wein Wisser WEIN WISSER (RENÉ GABRIEL) : 17 / 20 5/3/2017 Bettane & Desseauve BETTANE & DESSEAUVE ( BETTANE & DESSEAUVE) : 94-95 / 100 Ample, tannin fin, long, profond, fraîcheur aromatique : le vin possède une vraie complexité avec une belle énergie et une texture soyeuse. 5/2/2017 Martin WINE ADVOCATE (NEAL MARTIN) : 91-93 / 100 The 2016 Beauregard, which now boasts one of the most modern cellars since its acquisition by the Cathiard and Moulin-Houzé families (although with winemaker Vincent Priou still on board), has a clean and pure bouquet with detailed blackberry and raspberry notes tinged with vanilla and light violet aromas. This is a classy set of aromatics from Beauregard that show more intensity than usual. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannin, a little foursquare in style, quite conservative yet with abundant freshness and fine tannin towards the finish. It is nothing flash. It is the best Beauregard that I have tasted. 4/28/2017 Quarin JEAN-MARC QUARIN (JEAN-MARC QUARIN) : 15 / 20 Vin suave, au corps tendre, mais manquant d’éclat dans le fruit. 4/27/2017 The Wine Cellar Insider THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER (JEFF LEVE) : 90-92 / 100 With a nose that offers a field of spring flowers, gently ripened plums and wet earth, the wine is fresh with round tannins, medium/full body and a black cherry core of fruits on the palate and in the finish. 4/25/2017 Jukes MATTHEWJUKES.COM (MATTHEW JUKES) : 17 / 20 (80 Merlot, 20 Cabernet Franc) | 60% new oak This is a solid and well-made Beauregard without being anything particularly special. The fruit is balanced and the oak is, too, in spite of being quite strident right now. Otherwise the length is fine and the tannins are not too raw. It just doesn’t go out of its way to impress. 17+ 4/24/2017 Decanter.com DECANTER.COM (JANE ANSON) : 92 / 100 This is the second vintage under new owners (Galleries Lafayette family), with Fabien Tetgien of Smith Haut Lafitte overseeing the winemaking and Vincent Priou heading up the team in Pomerol full time. This is an extremely promising wine, with damsons, graphite, and touches of chocolate and exotic spices, while the tannins are soft and plush even at this early stage. A sexy, polished wine that delivers on the vintage. 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc. Drinking Window 2025 - 2040 4/21/2017 Robinson JANCIS ROBINSON (JANCIS ROBINSON) : 16,5 / 20 Dark purple. Very heady and rich on the nose. Super-luscious and easy to like with the richness of the appellation but not too much sweetness and certainly no oak or alcohol in evidence. Just not especially long but a decent effort. 4/19/2017 Wine Enthusiast WINE ENTHUSIAST (ROGER VOSS) : 89-91 / 100 Barrel Sample. The ripe fruit is showing well in this property, which has the same winemaking team as Château Smith Haut Lafitte in Pessac-Léognan. It is a rich, spicy wine with soft tannins and acidity at the end. 4/10/2017 Wine Spectator WINE SPECTATOR (JAMES MOLESWORTH) : 90-93 / 100 Juicy, with raspberry, blueberry and boysenberry pâte de fruit notes coursing through. Spice hints on the finish add range while energetic acidity keeps it all fresh. Delicious.—J.M. 4/5/2017 Jamessuckling.com JAMESSUCKLING.COM (JAMES SUCKLING) : 93-94 / 100 Tight and linear on the palate with a lovely depth of fruit and polished tannins. Medium to full body and an attractive, fine-grained texture.
