Neal Martin’s en-primeur note from 2006:
“This is an excellent wine. An intense nose of blackberry, cedar and a touch of liquorice. A full-bodied, quite ambitious palate with good acidity. Tight, with blackberry and raspberry fruit. Very focused on the finish. Impressive. Tasted April 2006.”
Robert Parker’s much more recent note from 2015:
“This is an excellent wine from Beaumont, a property sandwiched between the famous appellations of Pauillac and Margaux. Their 2005 has attractive plum, black cherry and blackcurrant fruit dominating the nose along with medium body, soft tannins and a round, juicy mouthfeel. Drinkable now, this wine should continue to offer delicious consumption over the next 4-5 years.”

Another bottle from my mate’s cellar.
Pop and pour along with a 2013 Te Mata Coleraine. The Coleraine with a haunting perfume including a nice whack of vanilla oak but such a drinkable wine already. The Beaumont with obvious bricking colour and recognisable Bordeaux nose but also very inviting.
I found the Beaumont has a hint of caramel on the nose. Drinking provides a lot of enjoyment from the medium-full body of dark fruits in a forest setting with slight cedar and smooth tannins.
After some warming up and breathing, this started to shine and showing classy darker fruit with all that Bordeaux tannin and structure. Really good with a chicken sausage and more luscious again after a couple of hours.
A fine Haut Medoc effort which is drinking really well now so I think get into it and enjoy. Excellent QPR from a great Bx year.
