This is the second vintage under new owners (Galleries Lafayette family), with Fabien Tetgien of Smith Haut Lafitte overseeing the winemaking and Vincent Priou heading up the team in Pomerol full time. This is an extremely promising wine, with damsons, graphite, and touches of chocolate and exotic spices, while the tannins are soft and plush even at this early stage. A sexy, polished wine that delivers on the vintage. 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc.

Tight and linear on the palate with a lovely depth of fruit and polished tannins. Medium to full body and an attractive, fine-grained texture.

The 2016 Beauregard, which now boasts one of the most modern cellars since its acquisition by the Cathiard and Moulin-Houzé families (although with winemaker Vincent Priou still on board), has a clean and pure bouquet with detailed blackberry and raspberry notes tinged with vanilla and light violet aromas. This is a classy set of aromatics from Beauregard that show more intensity than usual. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannin, a little foursquare in style, quite conservative yet with abundant freshness and fine tannin towards the finish. It is nothing flash. It is the best Beauregard that I have tasted.
