2019 Chateau Beaumont, Haut Medoc
Classic claret from a great Bordeaux vintage and brilliant value. 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and a smattering of Petit Verdot.
"The 2019 Beaumont has a delineated, fresh, cedar and pencil lead infused bouquet, lifted black fruit, light tobacco scents that emerge with time. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly brusque tannins on the entry, but I appreciate the edginess and tension of this wine and the grip it exerts on the finish. Worth seeking out."
