Why we recommend this wine
Château Beaumont has long been one of our favourite, reasonably priced Bordeaux wines; a great representative of what it is. 

The wine
The wine is a blend of the Cabernet Sauvignon which gives the wine its structure, Merlot which gives its smoothness and Petit Verdot provides the sparkle. The proportions of the blend vary by vintage depending on how the different varietals turned out. Fruity Merlots provide a pleasant structure and silky tannins. The Cabernet Sauvignons are quite lively, but their ripeness is sufficient to avoid green notes. The Petit Verdots were harvested in good health, and therefore completely ripe. Although Cabernet is usually around 50% of the blend, Merlot is not far behind. This is typical of the Left Bank wines; very few are pure Cabernet.
The wines of Château Beaumont can be appreciated for their fruit when they are still very young or can be cellared for fifteen or so years, when they will reveal all their complexity. 2015 was a great vintage in Bordeaux so this wine will cellar for 10 or so years. 

The wine estate
Located on the left bank of the Gironde, between the communes of Margaux and Saint-Julien, Château Beaumont draws its finesse and its delicacy from 113 ha in a single block of deep gravels which are some of the best soils of the Haut-Médoc.
Château Beaumont has opted for integrated viticulture, following the technical specifications of Terra Vitis®, aiming to produce quality grapes with the greatest respect for the environment.
It is owned by the same business group who own Châteaux Beychevelle and Lagrange – Société Grands Millésimes de France.

With rich fruit and good tannins it is the ideal match for rich grilled or roast meats, hearty stews, roast vegetables and strong, hard cheeses. Also see our guide to pairing food and wine here.

Did you know?
Very few red Bordeaux wines are purely one cultivar; whilst Cabernet and Merlot dominate you will also find Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. The proportions of the wine in each vintage vary depending upon the success of each cultivar.
