Tasting Note:

Philippe Blanc says the “Fruit is very dominant with nice dark cherry and black fruit, but the tannin structure is big and very accessible”. Compact and rather closed aromatically, hints of black cherry, graphite, and summer flowers emerge reluctantly. The palate is so alive with bright purple fruit, sweet, precise and very vibrant, there’s a wonderful intensity and gorgeous fine-grained texture to the fruit. Pure, long and very focussed. Ripe raspberry intersperced with minerals and cassis; there is less sweetness than in recent years, almost a touch of dry stoniness about it. There’s a lovely florality beginning to come through. An excellent, detailed Beychevelle with more precision and and energy than in some years.

"Smoke, grilled almond on the nose, even a touch of rubber from an edge of reduction. This has depth to black chocolate and bilberry fruit, it is well balanced and seductive. Enjoyable, it's pretty broad shouldered but it sits well within the successful run of vintages at Beychevelle. A yield of 47hl/ha. 18 months ageing. 55% first wine. Drinking Window 2029" - 2044. 94/100 - Jane Anson, Decanter.com
