92-93 Points - James Suckling

Shows some serious length here with berries, chocolate and orange peel. Medium body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. 40% cabernet franc makes this happen. Rest merlot.

Very little aroma, just a hint of graphite. Could do with more flesh in the middle to help with the light but dry tannins. Pretty lean.

Score: 86-88+

The lower lying part of this vineyard in Pomerol received some frost. A blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc, the 2017 Beauregard is medium garnet-purple colored with a nose of warm red currants and kirsch plus suggestions of potpourri and dusty soil. Medium-bodied, it is just a little lean in the mid-palate with grippy tannins leading to a firm finish.

Score: 88-90

The 2017 Beauregard, whose lower reaches were hit by the frost, has a straightforward bouquet with touches of mint and fennel infusing the red and black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, a little bitterness towards the second half that just deprives this of the harmony it might have otherwise had. There is a fairly long finish so let’s see how this performs once in bottle.
