Clos Beauregard is a 15-acre (6-hectare) plot that runs across the lower stretches of Château Beauregard, to which it was attached up until 1935 when the parcel was sold to Antoine Moueix. The property had been managed by Antoine’s grandson Jean-Michel until it was recently purchased by Crus et Domaines de France, backed by the enological expertise of Michel Rolland.
Location of Vineyard
Bordered on the north by the Barbanne Creek, to the east by the village of Saint-Emilion and to the south and west by the town of Libourne, Pomerol is the smallest of all Bordeaux appellations, yet it commands global recognition. Clos Beauregard is situated in the commune of Toulifant, about two-thirds of a mile (1km) south of Chateau Beauregard. The vineyard is planted with 93% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc with an average vine age of 40 years. The terroir is a mix of sand and clay soil.
The Merlot of the Pomerol region is famed for producing some of the most plush and velvetytextured wines in the world, and this wine provides a true expression of the Pomerol terroir at an unrivaled value. 100% hand-harvested and fermented in stainless steel tanks, the wine is then transferred to a mix of new and 1 year old barrels for 12 months before bottling.
