TASTING NOTES

"A very classical St. Julien that’s got good concentration and real elegance, too. Great black fruits on the nose with subtle oak, and the richness and dry tannins are balanced out beautifully. You could drink it now, but this will age beautifully." JamesSuckling.com

"The 2014 Beychevelle is dark, ample and yet also quite nuanced. Blue and purplish stone fruits, lavender, spice, menthol and licorice notes abound in this super-expressive Saint-Julien. There is lovely freshness and vivacity to the flavors, but this is a pretty intense, succulent style. Tasted two times." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"The 2014 Beychevelle has a very comely, pure bouquet with heightened dark cherry, blackcurrant and wilted violet scents rendering it almost more Margaux-like than Saint Julien. The palate is medium-bodied, svelte in texture with light tannin. It is a nimble Beychevelle, light on its feet with wonderful freshness and tension towards the finish. This is a very well-crafted wine from Philippe Blanc and his team, a St. Julien that is nimble on its toes." Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"This has a fleshy feel, with plum and blackberry compote notes driving along thanks to a solid graphite spine. Anise and roasted apple wood on the finish. Best from 2019 through 2030. 19,835 cases made." Wine Spectator

"The 2014 Beychevelle has an intense bouquet with macerated small black cherries, bilberry, brine and light oyster shell aromas that just feel a little ostentatious within the context of the growing season. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, quite elegant in style, the acidity well judged with a crisp, silky smooth mixture of black and blue fruit to the finish. It leans slightly to the more modern style of winemaking but it is very well pulled off and it has the matière to suggest long-term ageing. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting."
