Producer

Château Beychevelle

Located in the north of Saint Julien, Château Beychevelle boasts one of the Medoc’s most remarkable châteaux surrounded by immaculate gardens. There are two theories explaining its name and nautical label - both acknowledging the passing ships in the nearby Gironde and the Gascon language - "beychet velo" or "bêche velle" meaning "lowered sails" and "sailing vessel", respectively. Particularly prized amongst the Asian market, this estate is renowned for producing wines of superb concentration and power with excellent ageing potential. In the words of Decanter’s Jane Anson, this château is “one of the most vibrant in Bordeaux right now”.

Region

St Julien, Red Bordeaux

St Julien is like the middle child of the Médoc - not as assertive as Pauillac or as coquettish as Margaux. It lies firmly between the two more outspoken communes and as a result produces a blend of them both. St Julien's wines have often been sought out by aficionados for their balance and consistency, particularly in the UK. Yet due to its middle child nature, it can occasionally be overlooked globally and as a result underrated by those markets outside the UK. Despite the fact that it has no first growths, it has several second growths including Léoville Las Cases, Léoville Barton, Léoville Poyferré and Ducru Beaucaillou as well as the celebrated châteaux such as Talbot and Beychevelle.
