The 2016 Beychevelle is comprised of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. It spent 18 months aging in 50% new and 50% second use barrels. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it is a little broody to begin, opening slowly to reveal subtle savory notes of dried herbs, charcuterie and black olives before breaking through to a profound core of warm cassis, baked black plums, red currant jelly and candied violets.

The 2016 Beychevelle is comprised of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. It spent 18 months aging in 50% new and 50% second use barrels. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it is a little broody to begin, opening slowly to reveal subtle savory notes of dried herbs, charcuterie and black olives before breaking through to a profound core of warm cassis, baked black plums, red currant jelly and candied violets. The palate is medium-bodied and delicately played with a quiet intensity of tightly wound nuances and fantastic freshness, finishing with a lingering savory lift. This latent beauty will require a bit more time than most 2016s, but it promises to overdeliver to those prepared to wait. Around 19,000 cases were made.

Stacks of cassis, graphite and smoke on the nose of this rather full-bodied St.-Julien with a ton of velvety tannins that drive the long finish that’s simultaneously sweet, fresh and powdery. Try in 2022.

The 2016 harvests
Spread over a month, with some pauses dictated by the various ripening dates of the different terroirs and grape varieties, the 2016 harvests were the latest in Château Beychevelle’s history.
They took place in perfect weather conditions. The quality of the harvest was exceptional: the grapes were ripe, healthy and flavourful.

First Impressions
The 2016 vintage confirms the refined, elegant character of Château Beychevelle’s wines. It benefits from a new dimension with a more precise, more generous structure.
This is a wine of immense but controlled power, wrapped in a silky, voluptuous texture.

A New “custom-made” Vat Room
The 2016 vintage had the honour of inaugurating Château Beychevelle’s new winery facilities. The results exceeded our expectations!
Thanks to this cutting-edge equipment, the vintage reveals the full potential of Château Beychevelle’s exceptional terroir. The new winery has been customized to the vineyard, with every vine having a place in a plot-by-plot vinification process,that enables each terroir to express all of its complexity and depth. More spacious, and with an improved layout, our new technical facilities also enable a gentle transfer of the grapes by gravity, very precise temperature control, and extractions adjusted to the characteristics of each vat. Combining innovation and tradition, Château Beychevelle demonstrates its "haute-couture" expertise.
