  Château Beychevelle is a historic estate and Grand Cru Classé wine in Saint Julien, Bordeaux that dates back to the 15th century. During the reign of Henri III of France, the estate was the home of Jean-Louis Nogaret de la Valette, the Duke of Epernon, who was so powerful that ships who passed before his Château had to lower their sails. Hence the proprietary motif of the ship with the “basse-voile” (lowered sail) and the griffin, who according to legend would guard the cellar of wine god Dionysius.    Wines have been produced here since the 17th century. It was classified as a “fourth growth” (Quatrième Cru) in the 1855 Classification. It has passed through the hands of many owners since its begninnings, and is now part of the Grande Millésimes de France. The vineyards are planted with 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, with an average vine age of 25 years. The Grand Vin of the estate is Château Beychevelle, and their second wine, Admiral de Beychevelle.  Read less

Beychevelle is on the rebound as evidenced by what they have accomplished over recent years. A good example of this chateau, the elegant, finesse-styled 2004 exhibits black cherry and cassis fruit int... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2004 Beychevelle 750ml

Die Hauptparzelle des Château BEYCHEVELLE erstreckt sich über ein Terroir aus tiefreichendem Gronne-Kiesel – der beste Boden für die Cabernet Sauvignon-Rebe – und profitiert von den stabilen Klimaverhältnissen an den Ufern der Garonne. Heute rückt der Wein mit seinen herausragenden Qualitäten eher in der Nähe eines «deuxième Cru». Es ist unbestreitbar, dass der Wein an Reichtum, Intensität und Struktur aufweist – doch hat der BEYCHEVELLE auch eine Weichheit und Eleganz, die ihn immer zu einem ausgezeichneten Wein verhalf.
