The generosity of an elegant and refined Saint-Julien

In line with the exceptional 2009 vintage, 2010 has made Chateau Beychevelle shine among the greatest names in Saint Julien. Chateau Beychevelle is a prestigious benchmark of the appellation on the Left Bank of the Bordeaux region, and is ideally located on a magnificent terroir on the edge of the Gironde estuary.

The Chateau Beychevelle 2010 blend consists of Cabernet Sauvignon (54%), Merlot (38%), Cabernet Franc (5%) and Petit Verdot (3%), all which reveal the refinement and complexity of the vintage.

The freshness of the fruit characterizes the Chateau Beychevelle 2010. The bouquet reveals complex aromas of black fruit, spice and licorice while the palate offers a generous mouthfeel. The strength of its personality is in its structure with its refined and round tannins. The Château Beychevelle 2010 elegantly stretches to the very end with a persistent finish. A magnificent vintage for this exceptional Saint Julien.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Showing better from bottle than it did from barrel, where it was also impressive, but not quite at this level, the 2010 Beychevelle displays sweet black currant, black cherry, foresty notes, medium to full-bodied texture with impressive purity and moderately high tannins (although they've softened considerably during the wine's upbringing in barrel). Layered and rich for a Beychevelle, this wine should easily withstand three decades of cellaring. I would give it another 3-4 years of bottle age, but this is a fabulous effort from the first chateau one sees upon entering the appellation of St.-Julien.
