Château Beychevelle, 4eme Cru Classé, St Julien, 2018

Tasting Note:

Romain Ducolomb is doing a wonderful job at Beychevelle. Superb efforts in 2015, 2016 and 2017 have been followed up with another stellar wine in 2018 - possibly the best of the lot. Quite fragrant initially with plenty of kirsch, flowers and exotic spice. It is ripe and fleshy with lots of silky Merlot character, plum coulis, plump, juicy bramble fruit and Chambord, interwoven with some gravelly minerality and starry cranberry. This is very sumptuous, even hedonistic, but there is harmony and a silky, luxurious feel to the tannins that makes this so appealing. Finishes with pure, ripe griotte. Delicious. 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot.
