Nice liquid-fresh 'real wine' style, good, if not especially massive, consistency, a dry and classic claret elegance. Cool and supple yet full in all the right places and the tautness of gentle tannins. All very well-done. One of the real successes this year on Pomerol, with good line and length. 2016-2024 Rating: 90 L&S (Apr 2014)

Dark red-ruby. Almost overripe elements mingle with fresh floral and earthy notes on the nose. Enters with nice density and good floral lift, showing bright red fruit flavors and finishing persistent, with rising tannins. Though not especially complex, there's a lot to like here; I tasted this blind with Saint-Emilions in the same flight, and the wine's sweetness and spiciness made it clear that I was in Pomerol territory. Such site-faithfulness, or somewhereness, is always a good thing in my book. Rating: 87-90 Ian d'Agata - Stephen Tanzer website (May 2014)
Sweet ripe black plum on the nose and the palate is fleshy rich and ripe fruited. There is structure firmer at the back but the black fruits give a lovely depth and richness on the finish. 2017 -28. Rating: 89 - 91 Derek Smedley MW, www.dereksmedleymw.co.uk (May 2014)

Unusually for Pomerol, Château Beauregard has a rather fine château built in 1795 that they proudly display on the label. Rather than having a fine view – or beau regard – the estate is named after the Beauregard family who owned it in the 17th Century. Since acquisition by Vignobles-Foncier in 1991 the whole estate has been renovated, and all the Cabernet Sauvignon replaced with more suitable Merlot, and Beauregard has been set on an upward trajectory. The recent (2014) sale of the estate to the Moulin-Houzé family offers optimism for further improvement, not least because at the same time a minority share was taken by the Caithard family whose stewardship Château Smith Haut Lafitte has yielded great results. Sitting just east of the village of Catusseau, Beauregard is practically on the border with Saint Emilion and can boast Cheval Blanc as a near neighbour. The 17.5ha of vineyard are planted with 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc with the best vines being nearer the château on the Pomerol plateau and its more typical clay soil. The average age of the vines is around 35 years.
