Description

A great Saint-Julien red wine harmoniously combining power and elegance

The estate

Château Beychevelle, a superb property with magnificent gardens, is one of the most prestigious estates in the Saint-Julien appellation, located on the Left Bank of the Bordeaux region. More radiant than ever, the property benefits from a new cellar at the cutting edge of innovation designed by the architect Arnaud Boulain. The style of Château Beychevelle is defined by the consistency of its excellent quality wines. Powerful, fleshy and structured, they express the finesse of the great Saint-Julien terroir with elegance. Château Beychevelle's wines are made to be kept for a long time and evolve superbly over the years.

The vineyard

Château Beychevelle 2022 is a Saint-Julien wine from a 90-hectare vineyard. The specifics of this terroir lies in its magnificent Garonne gravelly slopes and its immediate proximity to the Gironde estuary, which regulates and protects the climate.

The vintage

A relatively dry and cold winter led to budburst on 25 March. The beginning of spring was marked by unstable weather conditions and an intense frost on 3 and 4 April, which had an impact on the vineyards. The particularly mild and warm conditions in May advanced early and rapid flowering. Despite stormy spells in June, rainfall remained low and insufficient to replenish water reserves. With temperatures at 40°C and maximums regularly above 30°C, July was the driest month since 1960. The vineyards, especially the old vines, resisted these extreme conditions. The harvest, which took place under excellent conditions from 12 to 29 September, revealed small grapes with an attractive concentration and freshness.

Winemaking and ageing

Following the harvest, a meticulous sorting was carried out in order to keep only the most qualitative batches. The wine was aged in barrels (70% of which were new).

Blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (54%)
Merlot (42%)
Petit Verdot (4%)
