Dear Wine Lover,
A few weeks ago we organized a blind tasting, internally at ARVI, on Bordeaux wines with the goal to select the very best value for money wine of this great region! We had very beautiful surprises but we have been blown away by a wine that costs less than CHF 20.00, and we were shocked when the bottle was shown the beautiful Château Beaumont 2015!!
Bordeaux is well known for its top Chateaux but many times we forget that there are over 10000 other smaller Chateaux that offer great wines at excellent prices. The original selection counted among 50 wines and together with all the sales team we picked out the best wine of this selection. The Bordeaux 2015 vintage will never stop to impress, so does Beaumont 2015 from the Haut-Médoc appellation! Between the Margaux appellation and St. Julien.
With a history dating back to 1772, Beaumont is now under the same ownership as Château Beychevelle in St. Emilion, a wine that has really impressed in 2015 and that only costs a fraction of Beychevelle! This is the typical Bordeaux red for your daily drinking pleasure, offering classic Bordeaux style notes and which costs 4 times less than Beychevelle today sold at around CHF 100.-. We were not the only ones impressed by its quality, as also all major wines critics agree on its fascinating value for money:
Antonio Galloni: The 2015 Beaumont is a gorgeous, everyday wine
Robert Parkers Wine Advocate: Good Potential
Decanter: more class than expected
The best Beaumont so far.
James Suckling: Seriously savory and texturally complex this is a powerful wine
Jeb Dunnuck: One of the standouts in my Cru Bourgeois tasting
Wine Enthusiast: With smoky aromas and structured tannins, this is still young and firm.
At less than CHF 20.00 this wine will give you great pleasure without breaking the bank
75.0 cl Château Beaumont - Haut Médoc - 2015 CHF 19.00
(CHF 20.45 Vat incl.)

James Suckling 92 points: Seriously savory and texturally complex this is a powerful wine thats also very fresh. I love the long, crisp finish. If this had a little bit more concentration it would be sensational. Drink or hold.
Wine Enthusiast 92 points: With smoky aromas and structured tannins, this is still young and firm. Under those tannins, the black currant fruit is developing to give a ripe wine with fine acidity and structure. Drink from 2020.
Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate 90 points: Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois annual tasting, the 2015 Beaumont has a more exotic bouquet than its peers with red cherries, wild strawberry and pressed flowers. It gains more and more refinement as it aerates. The palate is medium-bodied with a structured opening, the tannin enrobed with clean and pure blackberry and raspberry fruit, leading to a dense finish that just needs to attain more detail. Good potential. Tasted September 2017.
