Located between St Julien and Margaux. Eric Boissenot consults at Chateau Beaumont, one of the larger Cru Bourgeois, with 113 hectares in a single block, the vines averaging twenty years of age. Wines spend 12 to 14 months in oak barrels, one-third of them renewed each year.
Intense colour, ranging from ruby to garnet. The nose delivers notes of black fruit notes with cassis and blackberry, followed by empyreumatic fragrances that vary between vanilla and roasting. The young reds are full-bodied, marked by a hint of oak and hints of sweet spices. After a few years of aging, the tannins melt. Ageing – up to 10 years.
Beautiful with lamb, red meats, roast guinea fowl and hard cheeses.
