1999 Chateau Beychevelle Grand Cru Classe Saint-Julien

Wine Description

(From 2008 Vintage) 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.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2000 Vintage) The 2000 vintage is characterised by its very clean, pleasant, nicely-pronounced fruity qualities (blackberries and cherry) and flesh with great length in the mouth and good acidity providing nice balance. The tannins are present - ripe and in no way astringent. This vintage has more tannic structure than the last and has great ageing potential. Probably the best wine in the last 10 years. 49% Cabernet Sauvignon 38% Merlot 7% Cabernet Franc 6% Petit Verdot
