  • From Coravin. Aromas of black fruits; a combination of brambles, plums and blackcurrant, with earthy elements, sweet spices, a little leather and aniseed, a touch of blood and mint. In the mouth it's juicy and savoury spiced whilst being a little sweetly fruited. There is also an aniseed note here, with a little leathery edge to the surprisingly softly grained tannins. Finishes with a little alcohol warmth. Beginning to show some tertiary but this is possibly a little too young for me.

  • I can't believe it is 4 years since we last tasted this vintage of Beaumont. As before, it was very approachable soon after opening and showed a very deep colour and a rich, spicy nose. Quite a big wine but restrained, with rich, dark fruit and spice on the palate. The fruit was complex but not 'sweet'. Tannins provided a firm backbone but were nicely integrated and softer than before. It was good with food and opened nicely over a few hours, showing increasing complexity.
    A sample was retained to see how it survives over a day or so. It was definitely better after 24h showing an intense, spicy nose and a complex, soft palate.
    Not great claret but very good indeed. I think this is certainly ready but has life ahead. 90+

  • 2 bottles drunk on New Year's Eve. No discernable difference. Both were fully mature with soft tannins and enough fruit. Excellent example of what a top cru bourgeois should be, much better than my Potensac from the same year, but lacking the extra character of a great wine. Glad I have 12 more, but I won't keep them too much longer--perhaps another 2 years before they start to dry out.

  • This wine could go another decade or two. Lots of big, ripe fruit aromas and flavors. Inky purple. Nothing special, but a nice food wine.

  • Decanted for 2 hours which it needed in my opinion. Very different than my last bottle. Much darker fruit profile, traces of oak. Would never guess this was a 14 year old cru bourgeois, punches above its weight. I would agree with others that it is drinking well but no rush.
