Château Beychevelle 2009

 Incl. VAT & DP1 Imperial (6l)

The elegant finesse of an exceptional Saint-Julien

The exceptional 2009 vintage has hoisted the iconic Château Beychevelle to the rank of the greatest Saint Julien.

True to the saying that "great terroirs face the water", Château Beychevelle enjoys a superb location on the Left Bank in the Bordeaux region in the immediate vicinity of the Gironde estuary.

The exceptional climatic conditions during 2009 produced perfectly ripe berries, which were full of polyphenols and tannins along with aromatic freshness and acidity.

The Château Beychevelle 2009 reveals the elegance and complexity of the great terroirs of Saint Julien in a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (46%), Merlot (44%), Cabernet Franc (6%) and Petit Verdot (4%).

With great aromatic richness, the Château Beychevelle 2009 seduces immediately with the complexity of its bouquet that opens with black fruit, sweet spice and blond tobacco notes. On the palate, the wine unfolds all its power while maintaining a perfect balance as the mouthfeel evolves with grace and finesse. An exceptional Saint-Julien that still promises to keep for years to come in the cellar.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet colored, the 2009 Beychevelle begins a little closed, slowly revealing notes of iron ore, tilled soil, fungi and underbrush over a core of blackberry preserves, warm plums and cassis with touches of mocha and camphor. Full-bodied and richly fruited in the mouth, it has a firm texture of ripe, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with a compelling mineral lift.
