Deep purple-black colored, the 2020 Beychevelle offers up vibrant notes of black raspberries, fresh black cherries and cassis, plus hints of wild sage, chocolate mint, rose hip tea and fallen leaves, with an exotic hint of Indian spices. The medium to full-bodied palate offers layers of crunchy black fruits with a firm, grainy texture and just enough freshness, finishing long and perfumed.

The wine's structure and serious tannins are, happily, balanced by the rich generosity of the fruit flavors. Together, the two elements of this very fine wine will allow it to develop with weight and concentration.

Delivers vivid fruit, with an eye-catching beam of cassis, kirsch and plum sauce notes that flow through nicely, supported by a light brambly edge and a well-inlaid graphite spine. The finish is scored by violet and anise as the fruit lingers. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2027 through 2037.

Un bouquet capiteux, parfumé, aux arômes précis et chatoyants, qui ne sont pas sans rappeler des prairies d’été. On y retrouve aussi des notes de fougères et de feuilles de thé. Suit une bouche limpide, voluptueuse et alléchante, avec une densité de fruits qui gagne en douceur. Un ensemble harmonieux et puissant qui se termine tout en splendeur, révélant dans une finale soyeuse des notes épicées, chocolatées. Un très grand vin.

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.
