Description/ Tasting Notes

Spicy, plum-like bouquet and caramel aromas. Round, fruity, quite silky and soft, and nicely concentrated on the taste and lacking complexity and depth.

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, St 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.
