Beychevelle 2022

Beychevelle

Case Format: 3x75cl

Max score: 97.0

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.

Georgina Hindle

Supple, rich and velvety. Great delineation of tannins and fruit with creamy blueberries and cola touches alongside savoury elements of dark chocolate, liquorice and salt. Structured, fresh and well worked, this feels sophisticated, focussed and confident. Its missing a touch of acidity, but this has plenty of polish, seduction and potential to age. A yield of 36hl/ha.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown

A blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, and 4% Petit Verdot, the 2022 Beychevelle has a TPI of 78 and a pH of 3.8. It is deep garnet-purple in color and needs a swirl or two to wake up pronounced notes of crème de cassis, plum preserves, and Morello cherries, giving way to nuances of candied violets, Darjeeling tea, and dark chocolate. The medium to full-bodied palate is densely laden with layers of black fruit preserves, supported by fine-grained tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long with a mineral lift.
