James Molesworth - Wine Spectator

Dark and winey, with tobacco, bittersweet cocoa and tar notes wrapped around a core of black currant and fig fruit. Grippy from start to finish, but showing cut and drive, this is a very grounded Pomerol that will need some time to unwind. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2022 through 2040. 1,916 cases made. — JM

Nez sur la fraise épicée et la truffe, profond, ample et fin, de grande classe, vin long et salivant, avec une très belle finale.

Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Beauregard is slightly muted to begin, offering up subtle scents of warm blueberries, stewed plums and cherry preserves plus touches of dried roses, black tea and cigar box. Medium-bodied, the palate has a lovely soft texture and plenty of expressive red and black fruits, finishing long and perfumed. Drinking Window : 2020 - 2032. 92+

The 2017 Beauregard is a dark, powerful wine. Black fruit, chocolate, spice, espresso, new oak and licorice give the 2017 an impression of virile power that comes through in the wine's rich, unctuous feel as well. There is not a lot of subtlety here, but the 2017 is nicely balanced in this style. I would prefer to drink it over the near to medium term.

Jeff Leve - The Wine Cellar Insider

With plums and chocolate on the nose, this medium-bodied wine is headfirst, lithe, smooth and fresh. Medium-bodied and open, the focus is on its sweet red fruits, soft tannins and forward nature.

Neal Martin - Vinous

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.

Winemakers Note

Château Beauregard, the pleasure from eyes to palate Owned by the Moulins and Cathiard families since 2014, Château Beauregard is being reborn around its primary function: to produce a great Pomerol wine in the heart of a historic place dedicated to the residence of its guests. The property has built its reputation for several decades, not only on the majesty of the place, but also thanks to remarkably fresh and elegant wines. Historically, it was one of the first estates in the region to expand its vineyards in the 18th century, and has enjoyed an exceptional terroir ever since. Its location on the southeastern edge of the famous Pomerol plateau allows the estate to exploit fascinating and valuable land for the cultivation of vines. Its vineyard covers 17.5 hectares - making it one of the largest in the Pomerol appellation - and is composed of more than 35 plots. Driven by the desire to develop this estate with great humility and rigor, the teams decided to implement organic farming in 2009. This philosophy, both engaging and demanding, is bearing fruit today. The wines have gained in purity, freshness and ageing capacity.
