BORDEAUX EN PRIMEUR 2020 - One of the best value wines of the Haut-Médoc, Château Beaumont 2020 has been released today (May 4th 2021). The 2020 vintage is yet another success for Beaumont as this scores 92-93 points from James Suckling, its highest score ever.
"A linear and polished young red with compact, silky tannins that are polished and beautiful... Very solid wine from here." 92-93pts, James Suckling
With a history dating back to 1824 and currently under watchful stewardship of Grands Millésimes de France, the owner of Château Beychevelle, this leading Cru Bourgeois estate produces elegant, fragrant and generous claret. The 2020 is 'linear and polished' offering gorgeous expressive fruit with 'compact, silky tannins that are polished and beautiful' (JS). We can't agree more with Suckling when he says the Beaumont 2020 is a 'very solid wine'.
Beaumont 2020 is the best vintage to date from this value estate and is the perfect way to ease ourselves into the 2020 Bordeaux En Primeur Campaign.
Drinking Window: 2023 - 2028
"2020 has ended up being a really good but variable year with wines of outstanding potential for many Bordeaux estates." Jancis Robinson MW
"After tasting more than 400 barrel samples from the 2020 vintage, I can 100% confirm that it is another great year for Bordeaux. The 2020 vintage marks a rare trilogy of excellent vintages that produced wines at the same or very close quality level across the board from great named chateaux to lesser-known estates." James Suckling
