A triumphant galley sweeps across the front of Château Beychevelle’s bottle, which pays homage to its 16th century ownership under Duc d’Epernon, Admiral of France. Today, the Château continues its unvanquished legacy, by creating a highly respected signature wine renowned for its rounded, lavish flavour which is occasionally punctuated by hints of chocolate. This is a luxurious wine, whose vineyards comprise an abundant mixture of Cabernet Sauvignon (c.52%), Merlot (c.40%), Cabernet Franc (c.5%) and Petit Verdot (c.3%) to form its sumptuous ruby-red colour. Often known as the “Versailles of the Medoc”, Beychevelle is a grand estate that continues to support cutting-edge contemporary art through the Beychevelle Foundation. Blending viticulture with art may seem unexpected for many, but Château Beychevelle reminds us of the creativity, craftsmanship and ingenuity that exists behind the cultivation of some of our most treasured wines.
