The 2015 Beychevelle is a blend of 47% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot aged 18 months in barrel, 50% of which were new and 50% second fill. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it's scented of smoked meats, scorched earth, garrigue and new leather with a core of cassis, cherry cordial and plum preserves. The medium-bodied palate is a little firm but delicate, with lovely vibrancy and a bit of grip on the finish.

Lovely mulled plum and blackberry fruit glides along a cleanly embedded graphite edge, while violet and anise details skirt along the edges. The finish picks up a tasty ganache coating while keeping the energy up. Rock-solid. Best from 2022 through 2040. 20,500 cases made.

Doté d'une élégance plutôt robuste, Beychevelle exprime un fruit sombre de cerise noire épicée et un boisé fondu. Les tanins sont un tantinet stricts à ce stade, mais frais et vibrants. Finale saline.

Grande profondeur intense, longueur ultra racée. Noblement aromatique, avec une chair supérieure aux grands millésimes de la décennie précédente, signe d’une sélection plus sévère, tannin de cèdre, finesse considérable, saint-julien à son sommet de séduction.

Rich, ripe, round, and loaded with juicy sweet black fruits, tobacco leaf, espresso and cedar, the wine is full bodied, deep, complex, polished and round. There is length, which lets you enjoy the purity in all the sweet fruit and the silky textured finish.

Saint-Julien

The A.O.C Saint-Julien (968 hectares) was formalized in 1936. Located between Pauillac and Margaux both geographically and in style, it is one of the smallest Medoc appellation but the most consistent in quality. 18 active producers including 11 Classified Growths.
The appellation extends over 4.8 kilometers long by 3.2 kilometers wide and offers wines whose tannins have an incomparable finesse. What characterizes Saint-Julien is the terroir and the micro-climate. The terroir is a subtle blend between the contributions of stony alluvium from the Garonne and those from the Dordogne. The contributions therefore from the Pyrenees and the Massif Central. You should know that this agglomeration of rocks slowly broken then spread over the millennia is an exceptional case.
