Description/ Tasting NotesA compelling red wine, Amiral de Beychevelle is refined, elegant with more generous structure. Round wine of immense but controlled power, wrapped in a silky, voluptuous texture with scents of red and black cherry, core of blackcurrants and blackberries plus waft of lavender, wild sage and cumin seed.
Winery Info/ Brand
Château Beychevelle was an impressive Cru Classé built in the 17th century and reconstructed by the Marquis de Brassier in 1757. It was later extended by the Heine family at the end of the 19th century. Château Beychevelle has recently been restored to its original splendour in line with the Baroque theme to depict exuberance and splendour during that period. Today, owned by Grands Millésimes de France (Castel and Suntory Groups), Château Beychevelle offers prestigious events in its most unique setting.
Region Info/ Origin
Saint-Julien first became famous for its Bordeaux wine back in the 17th century. At that time, Saint-Julien was in the stage of development, to become a major Bordeaux wine producing appellation in the Left Bank when the entire area of the Medoc was discovered and populated by wealthy aristocrats. Coinciding with creating the famous vineyards we know today, the new landowners quickly began erecting massive showpiece chateaux throughout the region. Many of the original Saint-Julien estates are still standing today and can be easily noticed while driving down the famous D2 highway.
