Bordered to the north by the Barbanne Creek, to the east by the village of St. Émilion and to the south and west by the town of Libourne, Pomerol is the smallest of all Bordeaux appellations, but commands global recognition. Clos Beauregard is a 15 acre plot that runs across the lower stretches of the Château de Beauregard, to which it was attached up until the 1930’s.

The Merlot of the Pomerol region is famed for producing some of the most plush and velvety-textured wines in the world. Clos Beauregard is planted to 93% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc with an average vine age of 40-years. The vineyards are planted on a mix of sand and clay soils and are 100% hand-harvested.

Tasting Notes

Deep purple hues and shades of garnet red are complemented by aromas of blueberry jam, violets, vanilla, and spice.  The palate is plush and velvety, with flavors of black cherry fruit and notes of blackberry jam, coffee, cocoa powder, plum, and smoke.

Food Pairing

Serve with grilled red meats, stews or cheeses
