Château Beauregard has been in the Burrier family for six generations with Frédéric Marc in charge since 1999, bringing impressive technical qualifications but also 13 years’ invaluable experience at Beaune négociant Louis Jadot, working alongside Jacques Lardiére. He is also leading the campaign for the elevation for certain Pouilly vineyards.
They have been vinifying single-vineyard sites here since 1995 such is the diversity amongst the domaine’s individual terroir holdings.
Recent vintages winningly transcribe the domaine’s vision of rich but characterful Pouilly, refined by long barrel élevage. A property with clearly-focused, quality ambitions and the means to achieve them.
Grand Beauregard is a blend of the best individual climats (Vers Cras, La Maréchaude, Aux Charmes, Les Insarts, Vignes Blanches, Vers Pouilly, Les Chardonnets, Les Châtaigniers). It is a hugely complex, age-worthy and gastronomic wine – it os on the list of 14 of France’s 3-starred Michelin restaurants.
There are also two excellent wines from the Beaujolais available.
