The 2015 Beauregard shows a more intensely earthy, savory side of Pomerol. Hints of iron, smoke, tobacco and leather are nicely delineated in the glass. Pliant and succulent, the 2015 shows plenty of raciness, while the significant presence of Cabernet Franc (25%) in the blend comes through in the wine's floral, savory aromatic finish. Beauregard is not a huge wine, but it does appear to have considerable latent potential. Needless to say, it will be interesting to see what Daniel and Florence Cathiard, along with the technical team led by Fabien Teitgen, do here over the coming years. Tasted two times.

The 2015 Beauregard has undergone a complete overhaul since its purchase by the Moulin family of Gallarie Lafayette, of which the Cathiards at Smith Haut Lafitte are shareholders. Chancing upon Daniel Cathiard at the UGC tasting held in Beauregard's new vat-room, he told me how stressful it was, seeing the Italian-made, concrete vats being lowered by crane just a few days before the harvest. Their shape, not unlike an English cooling tower, is certainly an arresting sight. But Daniel's high blood pressure was not in vain, since this wine has one of the best bouquets that I have encountered from this Pomerol estate. The 30% Cabernet Franc imparts wild heather and fennel aromas intermixed with the pure black fruit that are entrancing. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet opening, very smooth and sensual for Beauregard, perhaps needing a little more tension and backbone on the finish. There is satisfying body and depth, though I think the investment will really pay off in a future vintage rather than 2015. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2019-2035

This is really exotic with bright blackberry, blueberry and chocolate aromas and flavors. Lots of walnuts. Full body, extra soft and silky tannins. Best I have tasted from here. 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Mar 2016, JamesSuckling.com

Engaging, with a juicy core of plum and anise, backed by a bolt of fruitcake. Shows good energy overall. Should be a crowd-pleaser. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

Dark lustrous crimson. Bought by Smith Haut Lafitte and Galeries Lafayette family. Debut vintage. Floral nose. Polished. Dry finish but lots of attention clearly went into this wine! There's an Edinburg rock quality. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2023-2033

The estate has moved up a gear with this vintage and with new ownership. Bright fruit with lift and fragrance. Purity and precision on the palate; opulence as well. Refined tannins. Apr 2016, James Lawther MW, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2021-2032

The change of ownership in 2015 - enter Florence and Daniel Cathiard - has given this property a shot in the arm. It’s a grassy, leafy, Cabernet Franc-influenced Pomerol with scented oak, bright acidity and a voluptuous mid palate. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2020-2028
