Winemaker's Notes

Beychevelle, always known as a very smooth and delicate wine, has become richer and more muscular in recent decades. Incorporating a larger proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend, a longer cuvaison, more new oak for barrel aging, and the option of a second label for lighter wines have all resulted in a better constructed, more concentrated style of St. Julien.

These changes have not meant a sacrifice of charm or finesse, however. Even in top years, Château Beychevelle is uncommonly smooth, supple and drinkable at a young age. With lovely soft, plummy, gentle flavors, it does not need to be laid down for long aging.
