Dense and concentrated plum and damson on display. Some austerity right now, as you hope in a young wine. Harvest from September 12 on young vines and more than a week later for the older vines through to October 4. 3.7pH. Tasted again a few weeks later, delicious, same score.

Deep purple-black in color, the 2019 Beauregard has an expressive nose of baked plums, black cherry preserves and blueberry pie with hints of spice box, wilted roses, dark chocolate and aniseed. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is filled with lively, vibrant black fruits, framed by finely grained tannins, finishing on a provocative mineral note.

A juicy red with walnut, chocolate and berry character. Medium to full body, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish.
