Cellar/Tasting Notes
The 2006 Beychevelle has a beautiful deep colour and expressive fruity aromas with overtones of wild berries and black cherries. The bouquet reflect good ripeness. This fruitiness follows through on the palate, with under stated toasty oak. There is plenty of tannin, but this is smooth and contributes to the wine's structure, without making it hard. While 2006 Beychevelle clearly has fine ageing potential, the softness of the tannin means this wine will undoubtedly be pleasant to drink in 5 years. Good acidity adds a great deal of freshness and contributes to a delicious, long aftertaste.
Wine Enthusiast (WE): 90
"Beychevelle’s style is for elegance, and this wine epitomizes that character. It is sweet, soft, with light tannins, achieving a balance of black fruits and acidity, light in structure and depth."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 90
A property that seems to be awakening, this St.-Julien leans toward more of a Margaux style. The attractive earthy, floral, red currant, and raspberry notes are impressively intense and complex in the aromatics. This dark ruby/purple-tinged wine displays elegance, finesse, and a beautiful mouthfeel in a restrained, moderately intense, but still classic style with sweet tannins. Tobacco, cedar, earth, and red and black fruits are prominent in both the aromas and the flavors. This wine can be drunk now or cellared for 15-20 years.
