Ruby. Blackberries, fruits, anise, blueberries, floral nose, elegant. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, fresh, fruity, detailed, elegant, lovely balance and texture, long. A beautiful and elegant Beychevelle. 93-95

  • 94p

Deep colour. Very attractive pure blackcurrant inky aromas with espresso oak notes. Well concentrated pure blackcurrant, blackberry flavours, fine plentiful al dente touch bitter tannins and beautiful espresso roasted coffee nuances. Finishes long and sweet with lovely pastille-like notes. Lovely wine. Tasted at the Union des Grand Crus. 95 points

  • 95p

One of the great and positive surprises of the vintage 2016. Dark purple red with violet hue and black core. Excellent nose and concentration, dark berry fruit, crushed blackberries, blackcurrant jam, black cherries and sweet elderberries. The aroma of the nose is complemented by hints of dark chocolate, mocha and hints of black truffles as well as oriental spices. On the palate opulent and well structured with sweet fruit, dark berries and black cherries, vanilla and hints of gingerbread, rich dark chocolate nuances in the background. Tannins are perfectly ripe and the wine has a wonderful length. The best Beychevelle ever tasted en primeur. 96
