Château Beychevelle, 4eme Grand Cru Classé Saint Julien, Bordeaux, France, Magnum, 2001
Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon 54%, Merlot 39%, Petit Verdot 7% from 74ha of vineyards, yield 67hl/ha
A beautiful chateau located right on the Gironde Estuary with grounds sweeping down to the waterfront. The "sailing galley" label is particularly well received on the Asian market as it represents "good luck".
Always an elegant style wine with great aromatic richness offering black fruit, sweet spices, and a light tobacco note.
"Elegant notes of damp earth, underbrush, sweet cherries, and currants arise from the modest bouquet. While a distinctive soil character dominates the fruit, it offers good richness, medium body, and moderate tannin in an elegant, stylish format. It is good to see this well-known property produce an excellent wine"
88/100 points, Robert M. Parker Jr, Wine Advocate, June 2004
"Lots of development on the nose. Much more muted and developed than the 2002 but gentle and easy and really very comfortable to drink already. Maybe not the most intense but very harmonious."
16.5/20 points, Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com, August 2007
