The 2016 Beaumont has quite a powerful bouquet with dense black fruit, boysenberry and cedar, traces of pencil lead developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite spicy compared to its peers, then it reins everything back in for what is a refined finish. Classy stuff, but I would afford this a couple of years in bottle. Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois tasting in London.

This solid estate has produced a classic 2016 Château Beaumont with juicy cherry fruits, leafy herbs, and saddle leather notes in its balanced, medium-bodied, straight-up delicious profile. It’s ideal for drinking over the coming 5-7 years. 2019 - 2026.
