Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
91 VM / 90 DE / 91-92 JS
The 2016 Beaumont has quite a powerful bouquet with dense black fruit, boysenberry and cedar, traces of pencil lead developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite spicy compared to its peers, then it reins everything back in for what is a refined finish. Classy stuff, but I would afford this a couple of years in bottle. Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois tasting in London.
A juicy and pretty wine with berry and chocolate character, a medium body and a clean finish. Clearly better than the 2015. - James Suckling
