2014 Pomerol Château Beauregard

Colour Red
Origin France, Bordeaux
Sub-district Pomerol & Lalande de Pomerol
Village Pomerol
ABV 14%

70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc. This is really attractively scented on the nose, with a good feel too. Very fine grip from almost powdery tannins gives perfect structure to the lovely fruit. A real stand-out at the Pomerol UGC tasting. Rating: 92 L&S (Mar 2015)

The 2014 Beauregard has a light blackberry and briary scented bouquet with a touch of smoke. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin, a little firm in the mouth and short on the finish. At least there is decent freshness here, albeit a straightforward Pomerol at the end of the day. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting.

The 2014 Beauregard comes across as a bit rustic and rough around the edges, with limited depth and nuance. I had hoped the 2014 would come together a bit more during its aging, but it has not. Today, the wine is compact and lacking in depth. It will be interesting to see where new owners Daniel and Florence Cathiard take the estate in the coming years.

The Château Beauregard 2014 was probably limited in its potential because of the parcels lying on sandy soils. It has a rounded redcurrant and raspberry-scented bouquet, the oak nicely integrated, though just a little simple compared to its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with an easy-going style, which is typical of the estate. There is a fine line of acidity, tart cherry and blackberry fruit with a hint of soy on the finish. This is respectable, early-drinking Pomerol. Drinking range: 2016 - 2021 Rating: 86-88 Neal Martin, (May 2015)

Château Beauregard

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.
