The long history of Château Beaumont dates back to the late 18th Centruy. After passing through the illustrious hands of various Lieutenant Colonels, Senators, and an ambitious industrialist, it eventually came to Bernard Soulas in the eighties who completely redeveloped the vineyard and Château. In 1986, it was acquired by the current owners, Société Grands Millésimes de France, who also preside over St Julien's Beychevelle. The vineyards are planted on deep gravelly soils in the Haut-Médoc between Margaux and St Julien. Dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, the wines are characterised by their charm, silky texture and reliable, text-book Bordeaux flavours.
