2008 BEYCHEVELLE / 龍船酒莊 (PRE-ORDER)

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.

FROM THE
EXPERTS

This ageworthy, elegant, well-made Beychevelle displays copious red and black cherry fruit notes intertwined with dusty, loamy soil and oak undertones, decent acidity, moderate tannin and impressive intensity as well as length. Give it 1-3 years of cellaring and enjoy it over the next 15-18 years.

The 2008 Beychevelle has a lifted, graphite and tertiary scented bouquet, gaining intensity with aeration, a subtle mulch-like aroma tucked beneath the black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, blackberry and bilberry fruit laced with cedar. It feels quite solid towards the back end with an insistent grip. As such, it is not a refined Beychevelle, but it is structured and a candidate for long-term ageing. 2020 - 2045

Sweet and fragrant and transparent with lots of polish and ripe tannins almost submerged in crunchy black fruit flavours. Sufficient acidity. An appetising package. Dry finish. Good integrity. Appetising.
