Chateau Beaumont Cru Bourgeois Supérieur
Varietal: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon 47% Merlot 3% Petit Verdot
Soil and Region: Located on the left bank of the Gironde, between the communes of Margaux and Saint-Julien, Château Beaumont draws its finesse and its delicacy from the deep gravels of the best soils of the Haut-Médoc. Château Beaumont has opted for integrated viticulture, following the technical specifications of terra vitis aiming to produce quality grapes with the greatest respect for the environment.
Harvests: The grapes are picked by machines, as they enable us to wait for optimal maturity before harvesting and take prompt action according to weather conditions. Equipped with optical sorting in order to always improve the quality of the grapes
Vinification: In French oak barrels for 12 to 14 months. The wine is aged in 30% new oak barrels to preserve the fruitiness over the oaky aromas. The wine is then fined with egg whites, with traditional racking.
Tasting notes: Great intensity. Color – Very deep with garnet reflections. Nose is very open and inviting with soft oaky notes of vanilla and spice bringing out the red fruits such as blackcurrant and black cherry. Mouth – The attack on the palate is smooth and fresh. The tannic development is of great quality, with fatness giving real mouthfeel. The lightly oaked fruit aromas are very elegant and contribute to the fine aromatic persistence
