Do you know ?

Beychevelle means "lower the sail" in old French. It is said to be linked to Jean-Louis Nogaret de la Valette who demanded that ships, as a sign of homage, lower their sails when passing his castle.

Domain and appellation

  • Chateau Beychevelle

    Château Beychevelle's land covers 250 hectares, of which approximately 90 are planted with vines. The heart of the vineyard is located on two plateaus of deep Garonne gravel from the Güntz era on the banks of the Gironde, the preferred terroir for Cabernet Sauvignon.
    Viticulture: Integrated vineyard management and organic farming for 13 of the vineyards. No herbicides are used. Harvesting is manual and selective according to the grape varieties, the age of the vines and the terroir.
    Vinification: The vinification is made to measure according to the vintage. The wine is aged in French oak barrels for 18 months for Beychevelle and 12 months for Amiral de Beychevelle. Château Beychevelle is aged in 50% new barrels and Amiral de Beychevelle in 30%. The wine is then fined with egg whites with traditional "candlelight" racking. The wines are bottled in the spring.
