47% cabernet sauvignon 47% merlot 4% cabernet franc and 2% petit verdot. The 250 hectare estate is planted in deep gravel with an average vine age of 25 years. Aged 18 months in 50% new oak. Notes of blackberry and Santa Rosa plum dominate the nose which also shows aromas of eucalyptus clove mocha and vanilla. Medium-bodied on the palate the tannins are broad and mouth-filling. There is a high level of acidity present but also enough fruit to balance it and allow for a long lingering finish. Give it 5-8 years to come together and enjoy through 2030. Tasted twice. Alex Shaw.


Winemaker's Notes:

"This has good ripe plum and black cherry fruit woven with a currant eau-de-vie aroma. There's fine-grained structure and an easy, vanilla-tinged finish...88-91" WS 04/12 "Plenty of blueberry and currant character with soft and velvety tannins and a pretty balance of fruit, alcohol and bright acidity. Nicely done...90-91" JS 04/12 "A medium-bodied, pleasant, lighter style of St.-Julien, the 2011 Beychevelle reveals a dark plum/ruby color in addition to notes of strawberries, black cherries, new saddle leather and hints of herbs and earth. Refreshing and delicate, it should drink well for 10-15 years...87-89" WA 04/12
