    Dark purple colour, this shows intense black forest fruits on the nose. It has the characteristic Beychevelle succulence and bold dark fruit flavours. The generous fruit then gives way to a grippy tannic core which is beautifully held together by a soft line of acidity which refreshes the palate throughout

    The 2019 Beychevelle, one of the only wines that I actually tasted at the château with Philippe Blanc prior to lockdown, has a wonderful bouquet with detailed blackberry, briary, cedar and light touches of mocha unfurling from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity, a discrete marine influence taking over towards the finish. There is a tang of seaweed and brine on the aftertaste. It keeps you coming back for more. This is a great 2019 from Blanc and his team though we must wait to see if it will surpass their 2018. Drink 2025 - 2060

    The 2019 Beychevelle is a rich, unctuous wine. Blackberry jam, cloves, licorice, bittersweet chocolate and torrefaction infuse the 2019 with tons of darkness that works well with the wine's flamboyant personality. Beychevelle will appeal most to readers who enjoy exotic, super-ripe wines. In 2019, Beychevelle pushes the limits, in my view.

    Rich, layered red with lots of ripe fruit and creamy, round tannins. Yet, it’s fresh and refined at the same time. Flavorful finish. Ripe and solid. Equal to the 2018 in quality.

    A confident and well expressed Beychevelle, this is bristling with blackberry and cassis fruits, creamy through the mid palate as so many of the best wines are in this vintage. It's broad shouldered which takes it a little out of appellation signature, but the glamour is well balanced by a lovely crushed mint leaf finish. Harvest September 23 to October 10, 55% of production in this main estate wine, 45% in the 2nd wine. 60% new oak. 3% Cabernet Franc completes the blend. Drinking Window 2028 - 2044

    Fragrant and floral on the nose. Plenty of zest and energy on the palate. Smooth, velvety texture. Tannins plentiful but polished. Clean and digeste with a persistent, palate-cleansing finish. (JL) Drink 2026 – 2045

    Wine Cellar Insider, June 2020,
    Score: 95-97

    Deep in color, with a floral, blackberry, cedar, cherry, cocoa and tobacco leaf nose. On the palate, the wine is soft, polished, elegant and with depth of flavor. There is freshness, a good mid-palate, length, purity and loads of sweet black and dark red fruits with silky tannins in the finish.

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

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.
