Viticulture at Beauregard is organic, as at the sister property Smith Haut Lafitte, but Beauregard only lost about 15% of the crop to mildew. Composed of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Beauregard develops slowly to reveal a core of blackberry compote, plum preserves and blueberry pie with touches of smoked meats, tobacco, baking spices, yeast extract and fragrant earth. Full, rich, velvety and packed with rich, expressive black fruit preserves, it has plenty of freshness, finishing long and spicy.-Lisa perrotti-Brown, Wine Advoate

Very pretty and refined with a lovely core of ripe fruit and chocolate. Hints of cedar. Medium body, fine tannins and a juicy finish. - James Suckling

The 2018 Château Beauregard is a deep, concentrated Pomerol that’s going to benefit from bottle age. Classic notes of dark fruits, toasted spiced, roasted herbs and cedar all give way to a medium to full-bodied 2018 that offers a big mid-palate, nicely integrated acidity, and ripe tannins. It’s a touch primordial, but it has class and balance and is going to come together beautifully in bottle. The blend of the 2018 is 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc.-Jeb Dunnuck

Lovely dark plum, warm cassis and boysenberry puree flavors glide through. Very caressing in feel. - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

 

There is lots of density here but it shows a lovely supple side to the fruits with intense damson and black cherry alongside swirls of chocolate and a patisserie choux bun touch of gentle creaminess. A good job, and a wine that’s easy to approach with a build through the palate joined by layers of tannins that are a little deceptive. 3.77pH.-Jane Anson, Decanter

 

 

Beauregard is very pretty and accessible in 2018. Medium in body and quite expressive, the 2018 offers a lovely combination of rich dark fruit allied with just enough structure to give the wine energy while remaining quite supple in feel. Hints of leather, smoke, licorice and lavender add shades of nuance to a core of inky blue/purplish fruit in this easygoing, inviting Pomerol. The blend is 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc, with the Franc adding quite a bit of aromatic depth and supporting structure. It will be interesting to see if the team at Smith Haut Lafitte can take Beauregard to the next level. Tasted three times.
