2019 Château Beychevelle, Cru Classé St-Julien

2019 Château Beychevelle, Cru Classé St-Julien

Beychevelle has been on a rich vein of form over recent years, and the 2019 continues this. This large St-Julien estate, overlooking the Gironde estuary, is a beautiful property with sea-faring links: it was owned by a 16th century admiral of France, and the label depicts a galley with a large sail. It’s a wine that’s worth securing at release price: to get hold of a vintage later comes with a premium.

Tasting notes

Rich, layered red with lots of ripe fruit and creamy, round tannins. Yet, it’s fresh and refined at the same time. Flavorful finish. Ripe and solid. Equal to the 2018 in quality.

James Suckling, jamessuckling.com (June 2020)

A confident and well expressed Beychevelle, this is bristling with blackberry and cassis fruits, creamy through the mid palate as so many of the best wines are in this vintage. It's broad shouldered which takes it a little out of appellation signature, but the glamour is well balanced by a lovely crushed mint leaf finish.
