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.
An exotic, rich, prune laden bouquet with a slight hint of vanilla. The high proportion of Merlot in the blend always provides a rich, black forest fruit cake character to the wine – so flamboyant! The mouthfeel is seductive with layers of black fruits, no hard edges and soft underlying tannins. A stunning Beychevelle.
