Tasted ex-chateau and single blind in Southwold. The Beychevelle 2008 appears to be improving in bottle, even at this early juncture. Sure, there remains some oak to be subsumed on the nose, but it does not overwhelm its attractive aromas of crisp blackberry, cassis and a touch of graphite. It is more Pauillac in style than Saint Julien. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, grippy tannins. There is impressive precision and mineralite on the finish. This is an excellent Saint Julien.

Tasting note


The 2008 Chateau Beychevelle from the prestigious Saint-Julien appellation is a testament to the elegance and finesse of Bordeaux's finest terroirs. With a medium to deep ruby-red hue, this wine exudes aromas of cassis and blackcurrant, complemented by leafy touches and a hint of spice. On the palate, it presents a harmonious balance of mid-weight structure and fair alcohol, culminating in a satisfying finish. While already expressing a graceful complexity, this wine promises to reveal further character after a decade and will continue to mature beautifully for several decades, depending on the vintage.
