Château Beychevelle, A prestigious Cru Classé whose character has been forged by three centuries of history…Nowhere does the word Château in its noblest sense ring as true as it does at Beychevelle. Since the Middle Ages, the illustrious owners of Château Beychevelle have gradually endowed it with the best plots of land and have perpetuated the tradition that has always been of prime importance in the destiny of this Grand Cru Classé It is tremendously fruity (with blackcurrant, black cherry and very ripe blackberry nuances) reflecting just the right degree of maturity in the grapes, without any overripeness. The wine is very full-bodied on the palate, but also well-structured and silky. The oak is understated and elegant. While there is plenty of tannin, this is quite delicious and without any noticeable astringency, which bodes well for good ageing.
