      Beginning to crack up ever so slightly, the 1964 Beychevelle still has a good measure of chunky fruitiness a rustic, medium- to full-bodied feel on the palate, and a creeping brownish cast to the color. The bouquet is particularly spicy for Beychevelle.

    Built in magnificent 18th century Louis XV style, Chateau Beychevelle sits in the St. Julien district of the Medoc, with neighbors including Chateau Gloria and Chateau St. Pierre. The name Beychevelle was derived from the expression "Baisse-Vaille" meaning "lower sails". This act was a symbol of respect by the French Navy to the Duc d'Eperon, who was Admiral of France at the time and 16th century owner of the estate. The chateau is a 4eme Cru Classe, and produces a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. At its best, the wine is known for its rich, concentrated fruit that ages with ease. In addition to its flagship wine, the estate also makes a second label called Amiral de Beychevelle and an AC Haut Medoc production called Brulieres de Beychevelles.

    Located in the southwest of France, Bordeaux is the single largest fine-wine-producing region in the world, with more than 15,000 growers spread over 57 appellations and more than 700 million bottles produced annually. The region boasts a two-thousand-year winemaking history and some of the wine world's most recognized and highly sought-after names. Red Bordeaux blends comprise eighty percent of production, but dry and sweet whites are also well-known. The region is divided into the Left and Right Banks (of the Dordogne River); Cabernet Sauvignon prevails in the former and Merlot in the latter.
