Situated in the far south of the St-Julien appellation, the label shows a beautiful galley with a large sail. The name derives from the ownership of the Chateau in the 16th century by the Duc d’Eperon, Admiral of France at the time. The sailors would "Baisse-Vaille", or lower their sails, as a sign of respect as they drifted past. The wine is renowned for its rich, supple, mocha character. Always a favorite amongst our customers and consistently high scoring. The best Beychevelle are concentrated and powerful and can age for decades. 
Rich, layered red with lots of ripe fruit and creamy, round tannins. Yet, it’s fresh and refined at the same time. Flavorful finish. Ripe and solid. Equal to the 2018 in quality.” – JS

James Suckling

Dense and concentrated, this wine is layered in dark tannins, rich chocolate and black fruits. The estate is producing richer wines than in the past without sacrificing the Saint-Julien style.
