Château Beaumont is beautifully positioned between Margaux and Saint Julien, with similar finesse and polish of these illustrious neighbours. Awarded 92-93 Suckling points, this top vintage 2020 is an impressive Cru Bourgeois; silky, elegant, long.
It means reserving the latest vintage before it is bottled. By paying an instalment 'up front', you reserve wine while it is still in the barrel, before the wines are shipped to the UK up to 18 months after being reserved, depending on the region.

How does payment work?
Now you need only pay the ‘cellar door’ price. Prior to delivery, we will invoice you for the second instalment (duty – around £2.23 a bottle at today’s prices) plus VAT on the total. Delivery (currently £7.99) is also applicable, unless you are a member of Unlimited. Alternatively, you can keep your case stored In Bond or Duty Paid in our state of the art temperature- and humidity-controlled customer storage facility (currently £12.60 per case per year).
After placing your order we will sent you a Reservation Certificate to your billing address. If the wines you have chosen are sold out we’ll contact you to advise which are still available.
Beyond the Label
Silky, yet firm tannins, lively black fruits with savoury complexity
Dating back to 1772, this beautiful, grand estate has passed through many noble hands. Bernard Soulas in the early 1980s did much renovation to the vineyards and cellar, but the greater investment was from 1986, when it came into the corporate hands of Société Grands Millésimes, owners too of Saint Julien's Châteaux Beychevelle and Lagrange. Its deep gravel soil vineyards are ideally situated between the two great Haut Médoc communes of Margaux and Saint Julien. No wonder, then, it shows the delicate elegance of the former, with the sleek, textured power of the latter. Its wine always represents excellent value, in part due to the size of its vineyards - 114 hectares. A great wine with intensity, character, length and cellaring potential.
"Polished and beautiful. Lots of blackberry, blackcurrant, mushroom and spice character. Very solid"
James Suckling Critic, 92-93 points
