($38-$53) Dullish ruby-red. Full-blown, exotic aromas of plum jam, roasted meat and leather, with a suggestion of tropical chocolate. Big, plush and full; a seamless wine that avoids coming off as flat. Finishes with ripe tannins and a lingering flavor of chocolate. I underrated this wine in barrel. Unusually fleshy for Beychevelle, which is not a bad thing.

Given the performance of this somewhat mystifying but beautifully situated estate in St.-Julien, we might be seeing a resurrection in quality, or at least much more consistency. A beauty in an up-front, supple, sexy style is the generous and savory, dark ruby /plum-colored 2003 Beychevelle. Medium to full-bodied with loads of fruit and glycerin, it is much more approachable than usual, but also generously proportioned and exceptionally well-balanced.

Aromas of toasted oak with chocolate, berry and meat follow through to a full-bodied palate, with velvety tannins and a medium berry and vanilla aftertaste. Pretty wine. Needs some more bottle age. 20,830 cases made.

Ready to drink. I decanted for an hour and the wine was smooth and full of character. It even improved by the second day when I finished the bottle! This was a bit fruitier than most Bordeaux I have had, but it was still quite enjoyable.
