The finesse and complexity of a fine Saint-Julien red wine
Chateau Beychevelle, a superb estate with magnificent gardens, is one of the most prestigious estates in the Saint-Julien appellation, located on the left bank of the Bordeaux region. Chateau Beychevelle’s style is defined by its consistent and excellent-quality wines. Powerful, full, structured, they elegantly express the finesse of the fine Saint-Julien terroir. Chateau Beychevelle's wines are ageworthy wines and evolve superbly with time.
The specificity of the terroir of Chateau Beychevelle is due to its magnificent Garonne gravelly slopes and the close proximity to the Gironde Estuary, which regulates and protects the climate. The vineyard is composed of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
This Chateau Beychevelle 1996 exudes a seductive freshness, refinement and offers delicate tannins.
