From an estate that appears to be on an upward trajectory, the 2019 Château Beauregard is a textbook 2019 with its pure, elegant, seamless style. Black cherries, darker currants, leafy herbs, and floral notes all emerge on the nose, and its wonderfully textured, medium to full-bodied, has gorgeous tannins, and a great finish. It's up with the 2018 and certainly one of the finest vintages I've tasted from this address. It will drink well for 15-20 years. Best after 2022.

Dense and concentrated plum and damson on display. Some austerity right now, as you hope in a young wine. Harvest from September 12 on young vines and more than a week later for the older vines through to October 4. 3.7pH. Tasted again a few weeks later, delicious, same score. Barrel Sample: 94

The 2019 Beauregard offers up a rich bouquet of plums, cherries, baking chocolate and licorice, followed by a full-bodied, fleshy and sumptuous palate that's broad and enveloping, with an ample core of fruit, melting tannins and ripe but succulent acids. This is a gourmand, demonstrative Pomerol that's already drinking well. This certified-organic estate on the edge of the Pomerol plateau, opposite Petit Village, has been replanted at higher density and benefits from carefully winemaking. Best after 2021.
Chateau Beauregard Pomerol 2019
Located northeast of Libourne, Pomerol, neighboring Saint-Emilion, is the smallest of the prestigious Bordeaux appellations, with only 800 hectares of vines. Its exceptional terroir is dominated by clayey gravel on which flourish Merlot, the king grape variety of the region, and Cabernet Franc, located on the deepest gravel. Beauregard, is located at the entrance of the appellation on an area of 17.5 hectares, which ranks it among the largest Pomerol properties. Its plot is planted with 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. In 2016, the property received 4% Cabernet Sauvignon which will be used in the blend within a few years.
The vines reach the nobility of age with an average of 35 years and all the new plantings are done at very high density, ie 9,200 vines / ha.
At Beauregard, the facilities have been completely redesigned. A new high-precision gravity vat houses 22 thermo-regulated tapered concrete vats, with a capacity of 60 to 80 hl, allowing extremely advanced vinification by plot. Two barrel cellars, one of which is gravity-fed, respect the laws of wine aging in its greatest conformity.
It is with even more precision that the harvest and its vinification are now done at Château Beauregard, thanks in particular to the new high-tech vat room. Manual harvesting respects the optimal phenolic maturity of the plot or even within the plot.
Sorting has been completely redesigned with a brand new harvest reception line that combines 2 selective sorting tables, a high-frequency destemmer and an optical sorting table. The vatting is done by gravity.
Small vats of 3 hl raise the harvest by elevator. 22 truncated conical vats in raw concrete, thermo-regulated in the mass - whose small volumes are studied to respond to the intra-plot selection of the harvest - welcome the harvest. The alcoholic fermentation takes place at a regulated temperature between 25° and 30° C depending on the potential of the vats and the desired tannic extraction. For the best batches, the malolactic fermentation takes place in new barrels. We select up to 7 different coopers and mature our wines between 15 and 20 months.
The history of Beauregard goes back to the 12th century and to the Knights Hospitallers of Saint John of Jerusalem, to whom we owe the famous Cross of the Templars, emblem of Beauregard. Active in the Pomerol region and owners of a small manor, they were already cultivating these lands. On this site, the Beauregard family had a first building built five centuries later, which was replaced during the Napoleonic era by the current Château: a magnificent Gironde charterhouse, which opens onto a terrace with two dovecotes overlooking a moat and a very beautiful park, the work of a pupil of Victor Louis, architect of the Grand Théâtre de Bordeaux.
This residence was a model for the Guggenheim family, who had a copy built in Port Washington, on the Long Island peninsula, and named it “Mille-Fleurs”. It was in the middle of the 18th century that Beauregard moved from polyculture to viticulture.
Over the decades, its successive owners have contributed to its development and its classification as one of the best wines of Pomerol.
In 2014, the Moulin and Cathiard families bought Château Beauregard and carried out an in-depth transformation. They also acquired the historic properties: Château Pavillon Beauregard in Lalande de Pomerol, Château Bastor Lamontagne in Sauternes and Château Saint Robert in the Graves. In Beauregard, the classical architecture of the place remains intact. The 200-year-old charterhouse has been completely renovated and now has 5 luxury rooms overlooking the park and the vineyard. A new vat room sees the light of day, adjoining the existing but completely redesigned barrel cellar. Two new reception areas have been created to welcome customers.
