Château
Beauregard

Pomerol
Motier Domaines
Château Beauregard’s history dates back to the 12th century. The Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem (the former name of the Knights of Malta) had a small manor house here which served as a stopover for pilgrims on the road to Santiago de Compostela.

The Beauregard family built an impressive villa in the 17th century. This was in turn replaced by the present-day château designed by a student of Victor Louis, the architect responsible for Bordeaux’s Grand Théâtre.

This elegant chartreuse, or stately home, bears witness to Beauregard’s long history and its intrinsic charm and harmony. The estate has belonged to the Moulin and Cathiard families, longstanding friends, since July 2014. Their shared ambition is to give a new impetus to the château and build a state-of-the-art vat room and barrel cellar in time for the 2015 vintage. The aim is to achieve even greater precision in the winemaking and to make the most of Beauregard’s outstanding terroir. Château Beauregard is in an ideal location on the southern side of the famous Catusseau plateau in Pomerol and has a magnificent gravel and clay terroir.

The Château has an unusual blend of grape varieties, including some 30% Cabernet Franc. This variety is often discreet in its youth, but gains considerable freshness and elegance over time. Brilliantly fruity when young, Château Beauregard displays all the depth and smoothness of the great wines of Pomerol with age.
