Critique Review

This comes from a small property on the plateau of Pomerol. The wine is structured, with some serious tannins as well as generous Merlot fruits. Its shape and concentration are just right for aging while the blackberry flavors promise a more fruity future. Drink this wine from 2023.

ROGER VOSS, Wine Enthusiast 2020

Lovely nose with bright blackberries and delicate, savory and spicy notes. Impressive concentration and a beautifully crafted tannin structure that supports the fullish body,without in any way dominating it. Long, mineral finish. Drink or hold.

Vineyard Info

The 6 hectares of vine covering the beautiful property of Clos Beauregard run across the lower stretches of the Château Beauregard, to which it was attached up until the 1930s. The 40 year-old vine, a token of excellent farming, is mostly Merlot growing on a mix of sand and clay soil. It is elaborated with the high precision demanded by the finest wines. All plots are worked with leaves thinned on the east side to enable the grapes to reach full maturity and development. When ripe, grapes are harvested by hand and vinified in traditional Bordeaux-style in temperature controlled vats.

This beautifully structured wine reveals its full character as it matures in new French oak casks. In order to optimize the potential of this terroir, Clos Beauregard has been backed by the enological expertise of Michel Rolland and his team since the 2011 vintage. A real partnership has grown up between our enologists and Michel’s team, which steps in at the key stages of this lovely wine’s development.
