Château Beychevelle, 4eme Cru Classé, St Julien, 2022

Tasting Note:

The dream team of Philippe Blanc, Erwan Le Brozec and Romain Ducolomb is doing a wonderful job at Beychevelle. Following their excellent 2021, the 2022 goes up another gear. Notes of Asian spice, damsons and violets waft from the glass. There's plenty of plump red fruit in the middle; stylish, natural, nothing feels forced. The mid-palate is beautifully pixelated and measured with notes of Chambord, ripe plums and gravelly cassis, while the tannins are super-refined and silky, laced with lots of fine detail. An excellent Beychevelle produced from 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot.

"The 2022 Beychevelle is fabulous. In most recent vintages Beychevelle has been a flamboyant, extravagant Saint-Julien, but in 2022 is its surprisingly vibrant and fresh, almost shockingly so. Ripe red cherry/plum fruit, blood orange, rose petal and spice are all beautifully delineated. More than anything, I admire the wine’s freshness and drive, qualities that have not often been present in recent vintages. That makes the 2022 one of my favorite recent vintages here. Tasted three times.* 94-96pts"* - Antonio Galloni, Vinous**

“A blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, and 4% Petit Verdot, the 2022 Beychevelle has a TPI of 78 and a pH of 3.8. It is deep garnet-purple in color and needs a swirl or two to wake up pronounced notes of crème de cassis, plum preserves, and Morello cherries, giving way to nuances of candied violets, Darjeeling tea, and dark chocolate. The medium to full-bodied palate is densely laden with layers of black fruit preserves, supported by fine-grained tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long with a mineral lift. 94-96pts" - Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, The Wine Independent.
