Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Spectator | Rating: 91-94

Juicy, with a beam of cassis and spice bread, laced with smoke, graphite and crushed plum on the velvety finish.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

Showing better from bottle than it did from barrel, where it was also impressive, but not quite at this level, the 2010 Beychevelle displays sweet black currant, black cherry, foresty notes, medium to full-bodied texture with impressive purity and moderately high tannins (although they've softened considerably during the wine's upbringing in barrel). Layered and rich for a Beychevelle, this wine should easily withstand three decades of cellaring. I would give it another 3-4 years of bottle age, but this is a fabulous effort from the first chateau one sees upon entering the appellation of St.-Julien.

Good deep red. Lively aromas of cassis, black cherry, licorice and flowers. Gripping and energetic, with captivating flowers and spices lifting the medicinal dark berry, licorice and mineral flavors. More intense than usual for this property: the tannins are serious but suave and this very youthful wine appears to have the density of material for two or three decades of evolution in bottle. It may well ultimately merit a higher score.

About This Producer

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.

Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend

Six varieties are permitted to be used in a red Bordeaux blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and, less frequently, Carmenere. Each lends a specific characteristic to the finished blends, most of which are dominated by large percentages of either Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings aromatics and age-ability, or Merlot, which adds softness and body. In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet blends are found on the Left Bank and Merlot on the Right.
