The 2006 Beychevelle exhibits a beautiful dark colour. The fruity aromas fully express itself and are marked by notes of black fruit among which is black cherry. The palate is full of fruity aromas discreetly completed with a delicate wooden flavour. The tannins are present without being coarse. On the contrary, they are velvety and carry the wine structure without corrupting the smoothness of the whole. The acidity is specific of this special Bordeaux vintage (as were the 2001 and 2004 vintages) and brings, with its precision, freshness until the finish. The Saint-Julien 2006 Beychevelle can be opened in 2018 or later.
