Tasting Note:

Only 55% of the 2006 vintage will go into the Grand Vin with yields being low at 48h/ph. The deep gravel terroir and proximity to the Gironde, have resulted in ripe balanced and complex fruit. Dark cherry and damson aromas. Clean pure dark berry and complex gravel flavours on palate. 59% cabernet sauvignon (the highest ever in a Beychevelle) 29% merlot, 7% cabernet franc, 5% petit verdot.
