Chateau Beychevelle Saint-Julien 4ème Grand Cru Classé

Wine Description

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
