Château Beychevelle, 4eme Cru Classé, St Julien, 2021

Tasting Note:

Erwan Le Brozec took the bold decision to present the 2021 Beychevelle after the 2020, and it just highlighted how good some of these 2021s are. This actually has the same IPT as the 2020. Very precise and focussed with loads of energy. There’s a beautiful perfume and texture to the dark cherry and wild hedgerow fruit. Lots off structure here, more than we're used to at Beychevelle, but there's plenty of drive and a nice fleshy core. Vivid, this balances plush fruit with a slight strictness. Finishes with salty, fruit laced tannins. More focussed and linear than normal. Very good. 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc
