Tasting Notes and Scores

90-92+

Wine Advocate

Deep purple-black colored, the 2020 Beauregard gives up pronounced notes of baked black plums, blackberry pie and black cherry preserves, plus hints of tar, aniseed, tilled loam and chargrill, with a touch of fried herbs. The medium to full-bodied palate offers chewy tannins and soft acidity to support the black berry and savory layers, finishing on a stewed tea note. The tannins should become a lot more polished after barrel aging, but based on this tasting, I've been conservative with my score.

The 2020 Beauregard was picked from September 8 at 37hl/ha (winemaker Vincent Priou told me that having been organic for almost a decade, the vineyard is very stable in terms of yield). Matured in 45% new oak, it has a very pure and refined bouquet, one of the best that I have found on a Beauregard at this stage. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannins, a slightly grainy texture and a spicy undercurrent. Very cohesive and silky-smooth on the finish. This just might be the best Beauregard made to date. Bravo!

Michael Schuster

(70% M, 30% CF; 36hl/ha; 14% ABV; 45% new)
Soft, rich, black-cherry and oak-vanilla nose, very appealing; rich, supple, fresh, and very finely tannic; sweet, gently caressing wine, very long to taste, complex, vibrant with an acidity so well-integrated for the year; black-fruit ripe, yet fresh and creamy, linear and fleshy at once, deep and satisfying, and with lovely length. The 30% Cabernet Franc class and finesse is very clear, and this is beautiful wine, the very image of fine Pomerol at a (relatively) affordable price. 2026–40+.

James Suckling

Very impressive purity of fruit with blackberry, black-olive, and earth character. Some black truffle, too. It’s full-bodied and very compact with firm, racy tannins. Goes on for a very long time. Could be better than the super 2016. From organically grown grapes. 70% merlot and 30% cabernet franc.

Jancis Robinson

Full bottle 1,349 g. Cask sample taken 6 April. 70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, certified organic. Fermented in concrete tronconic vats. Aged in 45% new oak.
Deepest purple-crimson with purple rim. Surprisingly subtle but deep aroma of pure black fruit with only a gentle hint of the leafiness I expect from the Cab Franc. On the palate, concentrated black fruit, slightly savoury/rocky in that darkness, chewy but not astringent tannins. Lovely freshness on the finish to balance the whole, and a gentle fruit sweetness on the finish. (JH)

Jeff Leve

Deep garnet in color, the wine quickly shows off its floral aromatics along with spice, licorice and black plums. Soft and silky, polished, fresh and elegant, the chocolate centric finish with all its ripe, dark red pit fruits tastes as good as it feels. Beauregard has really been upping their game the last couple of years. 92-94

Jeb Dunnuck

From another estate that’s been on the uptick lately, the 2020 Château Beauregard offers a beautiful perfume of jammy black and blue fruits as well as classic Pomerol floral and earthy mineral aromas and flavors. Fleshy, soft, up-front, yet concentrated, with a solid spine of tannins, this is another one of those Pomerols that delivers wonderful purity of fruit along with a rare mix of richness and elegance. It will drink well for 20-25 years.
