Tasting Note:

We were smitten with the 2015 Beychevelle, and 2016 is equally impressive. Compared to the 2015 (which we re-tasted at the Chateau), this is more refined and vibrant. Their Technical Director, Romain Ducolomb showed us around their impressive new winery. This new facility certainly allows them greater precision during wine-making and this shows in the wine, which in 2016 parades a beautiful perfume of bright ripe berries. This is not overly complex, but it is packed with bright seductive juicy fruit and there are nicely polished, supple tannins coated in red cherry fruit. A seamless, harmonious and charming Beychevelle produced from 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc.
