    The deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Beychevelle wafts sensuously from the glass with fragrant Black Forest cake, potpourri, star anise and black tea scents over a core of black raspberries, warm blackcurrants and kirsch with touches of fallen leaves and lavender. Full-bodied and packed with fragrant red and black fruit layers, it has a firm, velvety texture and fantastic freshness lifting the very long, perfumed finish. Beautiful! Anticipated time in barrel is 18 months, 60% new and 40% second fill. The tentative blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc.

  • 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.
