A silky red wine from Saint-Julien

Chateau Beychevelle is a Classified 3rd Growth from Saint-Julien. The vineyard spreads over a total area of 90 hectares, planted on a typical terroir of deep gravel from the Garonne. The 2016 vintage is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (47%), Merlot (47%), Cabernet Franc (5%) and Petit Verdot (1%).

Chateau Beychevelle 2016 is refined and elegant, respecting the long tradition of the property. Precise and generous, the mouth is coated with a silky and voluptuous flavours. The wine is of a rare beauty and power, where subtlety, complexity, freshness and depth blend together perfectly. 



Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Beychevelle is a blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc cropped at 45 hectoliters per hectare between 3 October and 18 October. It is matured in 50% new oak. Furthermore, it is the first vintage to be matured in the new chichi winery whose glass exterior overlooks the passing traffic on the D2. It has a very pure, fragrant bouquet with black cherries, cassis, cedar and wet limestone, extremely precise to the point where you might think it was from the Right Bank (logical given the proportion of Merlot in the blend). The palate is sensational: understated at first and bridled with ultra-fine tannin, it is a Beychevelle armed with a disarming sense of symmetry. It builds in the mouth towards a fabulously tensile finish that is so fresh and full of energy that the senses are almost overwhelmed. Frankly, it leaves all the other Beychevelles in recent years standing. This is an electrifying 2016 from winemaker Philippe Blanc and his right-hand man, technical director, Romain Ducolomb.
