The wines of Château de Beauregard, Mâconnais, Burgundy

I’ve not come across this Mâcon producer before, but this is a deeply impressive line-up of whites. Directed since 1999 by Frédéric Burrier, a lot have work has gone into the vineyards, and this seems to be paying dividends. Some of them are available in the UK from the Wine Society (prices in brackets).

Château de Beauregard Mâcon Vergisson 2001
Minerally, nutty nose is savoury and rounded. The palate is rich, fruity and nutty with a distinctive savoury minerally character. Good concentration. Very good+ 88/100

Château de Beauregard Saint Véran 2000
Refined, savoury nose is classy with nice lemony freshness. The palate is crisp and full with bright fruit and a nutty edge. Lots of lemony intensity. Very appealing and concentrated. Very good/excellent 90/100 (£8.95)

Château de Beauregard Pouilly-Fuissé Les Ménètrières 2001
Lovely, lively rich lemony fruited nose – very forward and appealing. The palate is rich, nutty and fruity with a toasty edge. A big wine showing good concentration. Very good/excellent 91/100 (£18.50)

Château de Beauregard Pouilly-Fuissé La Maréchaude 2000
Lovely forward nose showing brilliantly balanced lemony fruit and some nutty, toasty richness. The palate is richly textured and nutty, crisp and full. Savoury with a herbal touch to it. Quite a serious wine, this is very appealing and moreish. Very good/excellent 91/100

Château de Beauregard Pouilly-Fuissé Le Grand Beauregard 1999
The top cuvee. Savoury, intense toasty, nutty nose with complex lemony fruit. The palate shows lovely nutty complexity. Very rich and structured with lots of fruit. Great balance to this superb wine. Very good/excellent 93/100
