Chateau Beychevelle (2016)

New

Bursting, vivacious wild raspberry, dark cherry, subtle plum and cool inflected mineral blueberries suffuse on the nose with aplomb and considerable charisma. Seriously charming. Dark fruit melds perfectly with red tones. Pinpoint violets. Purple mineral, rocks and very pale blue fruit ambles alongside. The balance between crisp acidity and minerality may well be perfect, flawless. Graphite and pencil shavings just add extra layers to this.

    Château Beychevelle is a 4ème Cru Classé St-Julien wine property that boasts one of the most impressive châteaux in the whole of the Médoc. Its label depicts a beautiful galley with a large sail, as a consequence of its ownership in the 16th century by the Duc d`Eperon, Admiral of France at the time. The expression "Baisse-Vaille", meaning "lower sails", later evolved into the name Beychevelle. Today the property is owned by Grands Millésimesde France.

    Beychevelle's 85 hectares of vineyards are located in the far south of the St-Julien appellation, just outside the hamlet of St-Julien-Beychevelle. The wine is typically a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. It is matured in oak barrels (50-60% new) for 18 months. It is renowned for its suppleness, smoothness and its rich, and sometimes chocolatey character.
