A large estate of 69 hectares, Beychevelle has the reputation of producing generally forward wine to give easy early drinking pleasure. Yields were low at 47hl/ha.
This is a beautifully made wine, full of crème de cassis and an underlay of chocolate, supported by impressive tannins and a firm structure. A very polished and attractive finish.
Sirloin of beef served pink with roast potatoes. Yummy!
