Wine Details



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 1995 Vintage) Roast coffee bean aromas. Concentrated, savoury fruit palate supported by fruit tannins.

    Dark and delicious, starting note of a high C, moving in to a middle d, then ending on a natural E

    62% Cabernet Sauvignon; 31% Merlot; 5% Cabernet Franc; 2% Petit Verdot. If a bit shy on overt fruitiness, this solid young wine comes with a good sense of essential extract and teases with glimmers of black fruits, olive and loamy earth elements in both its concentrated aromas and flavors. It toughens up at the finish as befits a young claret, but its fruit holds on and convinces that a wait of five years is worthwhile.
