Something about Chateau Beychevelle
The identity of Beychevelle is based on a legend. At the beginning of the 17th century, the Chateau became the property of the First Duke of Epernon. He was so powerful that ships sailing the Gironde had to lower their sails up until the castle as a sign of respect and allegiance to the Duke. It was during this time that the domaine acquired its emblem, a griffon-bowed ship with its Gascon-derived named “Baisse voile” that would later become Beychevelle.
A superb property with beautiful gardens, Chateau Beychevelle produces one of the prestigious wines from the Saint-Julien appellation, which is located on the Left Bank of the Bordeaux region. More radiant than ever, the estate’s new vat house designed by architect Arnaud Boulain is at the forefront of innovation.
Among the 250-hectare property, Chateau Beychevelle oversees 90 hectares of vines that grow the typical Medoc varieties: 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot.
The uniqueness of Beychevelle’s terroir is due to its magnificent Garonne gravel outcrops and its prime location in the immediate vicinity of the Gironde, which helps regulate and protect against the climate.
As exceptional wines, the style of Chateau Beychevelle is typified by its consistent, excellent quality. Powerful, fleshy and structured, they express the elegance and finesse of the exceptional terroir of Saint-Julien. Made for cellaring, the wines of Chateau Beychevelle evolve superbly over the years.

Beychevelle is on the rebound as evidenced by what they have accomplished over recent years. A good example of this chateau, the elegant, finesse-styled 2004 exhibits black cherry and cassis fruit interwoven with loamy soil, dried herb, and spicy oak notes. Medium-bodied, elegant, finely tuned, and finesse-styled, it is not short on flavor or depth. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2022.
Pretty plum and light earth aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a clean finish. Delicate
Rather light. Simple sweetness and some green notes on the nose - not at all as deep and impressive as some other St Juliens although there is an attractive freshness. Far from the most ambitious wine - a bit weak - but nicely balanced and easy. Should mature relatively fast. Quite appetising tannins. I went back and added half a point to this wine as it will provide attractive drinking even if it's not very serious. Drink 2011-17
