2005 Château Beauregard, Pomerol
Winemaker Vincent Priou believes that the 2005 vintage is his finest wine to date; certainly we cannot recall a more delicious wine from the property. Scents and flavours opened in the glass to reveal a mid-weight, lithe, attractive pomerol with a plum and fruit-cake dominated palate. Neither overworked nor excessively tannic, this is natural, pure, vibrant pomerol. A touch of minerality broadens black fruit flavours. Very reasonably priced.
