Our oenologists' opinion

Powerful wine with potential

Its garnet color offers an open nose with hints of red fruit gratin and spicy. On the palate, this wine presents a supple attack, quite fleshy on silky tannins. Tasty and full-bodied finish.



Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Do you know ?

In ancient French Beychevelle means " lower the sails". He would be bound to Jean-Louis Nogaret de la Valette who demanded that the ships, in sign of homage, lower their sails as they passed in front of his castle.

Domain and appellation

  • Château Beychevelle

    Since its construction in 1565 by Bishop Francois de Foix-Candale, the most powerful families have stayed there, we can mention the Dukes of Epernon or Jean-Louis Nogaret de la Valette, Grand Admiral of France and Governor of Guyenne.
    Today, Château Beychevelle belongs to Grands Millésimes de France held by the Castel and Suntory groups.

    • Terroir: The land of Château Beychevelle stretches over 250 hectares of which 90 are planted with vines.


    • Viticulture: Raised vine growing and organic farming on 1/3 of the vineyard. No herbicides used. The grape harvests are 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 breeding is done in French oak barrels over a period of 18 months for Beychevelle and 12 months for the Admiral de Beychevelle. Château Beychevelle is bred in 50% new barrels and the Admiral de Beychevelle in 30%. The wines are bottled in the spring.
