The Beychevelle 2010 has a very refined bouquet with blackberry, mineral, a touch of wild heather – all beautifully defined although still a little closed after bottling. The palate is medium-bodied with a spicy entry, light peppery fruit and a deep, almost broody finish that demonstrates great weight and persistency. This is a great Beychevelle from Philippe Blanc and his team, though it deserves several years in bottle...95" Neal Martin The Wine Journal 2/13

Toller Beychevelle. 2010 war ein gutes Jahr und das schmeckt man auch: sehr fein, präsente Frucht, leichtes Holz, noch etwas zu herbe Tannine, wird aber noch abgebaut
External Reviews for Beychevelle
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.
Château Beychevelle is a prestigious great growth steeped in three centuries of history. Beychevelle was the fiefdom of the Ducs d'Epernon. The first duke, Jean Louis Nogaret de la Valette, French Grand Admiral, wielded enormous power. According to legend, all ships had to lower theirs sails as they sailed past the Château in hommage to its powerful owner. This accounted for the name Baisse-Voile, which changed to Beychevelle over the years. Built in the 17th century and reconstructed by the Marquis de Brassier in 1757, Château Beychevelle is one of the jewels of the entire Bordeaux region. Maintaining a wonderful balance between power and finesse, Beychevelle's wine reflects its elegant architecture. The château places great emphasis on environmental protection and health, and earned both Agriculture Raisonnée ("Sustainable Agriculture") and "Terra Vitis" certification in 2005.
Beychevelle’s style privileges elegance over weight, and such is the case with the 2010. It’s a pure-fruited, ripe and lightly tannic wine, emphasizing a blackberry note. This will evolve relatively quickly, reaching a peak in approximately eight years.
Features a gutsy feel, displaying dark, roasted cedar and tobacco notes framing a core of steeped fig, blackberry paste and plum skin that rumbles through the tarry finish. Shows strong grip on the back end, with the briary edge extending nicely. Best from 2016 through 2035.
2010: Flowery blueberry, red and black currant fruit notes intermixed with a hint of damp earth emerge from this wine's moderate aromatics. Elegant with medium body as well as a classic Beychevelle style with high tannins and a more restrained struct... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

A blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon 38% Merlot 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot create a structured masculine four-square styled wine dominated by fresh ripe cassis notes. This old school style of wine will please some tasters more than it did me. Jeff Leve.
