The Beaumont has an attractive nose with ripe raspberry and strawberry fruit laced with cedar. The palate is well balanced with chunky tannins, but they have extracted the fruit well without overdoing it and the result is a simple but finely tuned Bordeaux 2011 to drink over the next 5-8 years. Tasted April 2012. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com
Blackish crimson. Slightly leafy black fruit. Pretty firm and dry and rather hard work on the finish, fresh nevertheless and the tannins are not aggressive, just very firm. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com
For a supposed early drinker the 2011 Beaumont could have done with a tick less tannin. It's well concentrated though and if it can shed some of the dryness will be ok.
Attractive cassis fruit, nice smoothness and some charm as well as grip. Drink 2014-2018. Decanter.com
Dark plum, black currant and fig notes are melded together at the core, with ample tobacco and roasted wood spice hints starting to fill in along the edges. There's lots of singed wood on the finish, but also plenty of flesh and drive. A little bit old-school. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com
