We had a sentimental feel for Beauregard because it was one of our first really affordable 1982 wines we tasted in early 2000s. So good we bought 2 cases and only finished drinking about 5 years ago.
2015 was undoubtedly a great Bordeaux vintage. Hence, we bought a few cases of this this wine. Happened to be highly rated too! :)
'Impressive and deep-set plums, cherries and violets, not to mention licorice and lightly spicy oak-derived accents, meet with mocha on the nose. The palate has a really impressive core of fleshy, bright red-plum and blueberry flavors all wrapped in supple tannins that have freshness and effortless depth. Try from 2022.' James Suckling 95 pts
'Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Beauregard has a lovely fragrant, earth-inspired nose with a core of black raspberries, warm mulberries and plum preserves plus touches of garrigue and violets. Medium-bodied, soft and beautifully elegant with amazing freshness and energy, it finishes long and minerally.' Wine Advocate 93 pts
'The 2015 Beauregard has turned out better than I had originally expected. Today, I see a wine of notable textural richness and far better balance than en primeur. Most, if not all, of that can be attributed to the work the winemaking team did in tweaking the blend. Sumptuous and racy to the core, the 2015 is gorgeous today. The more floral/savory element of the Franc that was so evident during aging has softened considerably. This is an impressive debut for the first vintage under the management of the Cathiard family. Black cherry, chocolate, new leather and spice notes add to the wine's succulent, inviting personality. Tasted three times.' Vinous 93 pts
