Tom Cannavan (01-2007) Very round and plummy on the nose, with a mellow pencil-shaving quality and those opulent notes of fudge, tobacco and woodsmoke in the background. Sweetness of fruit here, with the palate rich and full-textured, with really quite fat, forward black fruits that nevertheless have a lip-smacking juiciness and racy edge of tannin and acidity. Chocolate and earthy, smoky notes emerge in the finish in a really attractive Beychevelle.

(01-2003) Dark red. Good intensity. Belle. Net. Medium intensity. Fruity. Fees. Note blackberry. The smooth touch and taste are at the rendezvous. The wine, good build, fairly juicy, grows on end tasty and fine tannins, fruit, licorice and long, with a feeling of coating and velvet tannin rarely achieved so far in this vintage. It's very good.

(06-2004) Elegant notes of damp earth, underbrush, sweet cherries, and currants arise from the modest bouquet. While a distinctive soil character dominates the fruit, it offers good richness, medium body, and moderate tannin in an elegant, stylish format.

Beychevelle

Château Beychevelle is a fourth classified grand cru (classification of 1855) of the Saint-Julien appellation. Located on the left bank of the Médoc, the vineyard includes 92 hectares of vines. The vines are around 30 years old and benefit from reasoned treatment. Château Beychevelle is a classic Saint-Julien: roundness, rich aromas, and power. The classic harmony of the greatest Médoc, which deserves much more than the fourth cru of the 1855 classification.


Beychevelle also produces a second wine called Amiral de Beychevelle. And also offers another Saint Julien under the pretty name: Le Château Moulin de la rose. Château Beychevelle one of the purest 17th century jewels of the Médoc, but one can still bow to the exceptional quality of its wine. When fully ripe after 10 years, it turns out to be smooth, supple, exceptionally balanced and graceful, in short: classic, like the architecture and the gardens of the château.


The best vintages of Beychevelle are undoubtedly 1982 and the vintage 1986. The wines of 19892000 and grands crus of 2005 are equally exceptional. Finally, Château Beychevelle has also produced great vintages such as 20092010 and the 2015 vintage.
