Tasting Notes

Fruity with red- and dark-fruit aromas. Supple and easy-going on the palate. Light structure but fine tannins. Pleasant early drinking.

Score: 15+

James Lawther MW, Maturity: 2024-2030 11 May 2022

The 2021 Beaumont is a deep, punchy Haut-Médoc. A blast of dried herbs, charred earth, spice, leather and tobacco hits the palate as this pleasantly rustic wine shows off its considerable personality. The 2021 could be quite good if it comes together with élevage.

Score: 88 - 90

Antonio Galloni, Maturity: 2023 - 2031 01 May 2022

The 2021 Beaumont is much leaner on the nose compared directly with the 2020, though it is well defined, slightly herbaceous and fresh in style. The midweight palate is medium-bodied with dry tannins on the entry and a grainy texture. It attenuates slightly toward the cedary finish. Give this 2–3 years in bottle to see if it fills out.

Score: 86 - 88

Neal Martin, Maturity: 2024-2036 01 May 2022

Medium-bodied with juicy currant and beetroot notes. Medium, sleek tannins. Savory finish.

Score: 89 - 90

James Suckling, 01 May 2022

Offering up aromas of sweet berries, spices and loamy soil, the 2021 Beaumont is medium-bodied, lively and nicely balanced, concluding with a discreetly minty finish. The blend is dominated by an unusually high 65% of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Score: 87 - 89

William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 29 April 2022

This is bright and cheerful, not delivering as smoothly as in the past few vintages but there is plenty to enjoy here. Everything in its place, well made with a touch of smoked almosts and grilled oak. 40hl/h yield.

Score: 85

Jane Anson, Jane Anson Inside Bordeaux, 07 April 2022

A rock solid Haut-Médoc, the 2021 Château Beaumont gives up plenty of ripe red and black fruits, a kiss of meatiness in its dried herb and spicy aromatics, medium-bodied richness, and a balanced, well-made style on the palate.

Score: 87 - 88
