Château Beychevelle 2011 – Saint-Julien, Cru Classé

The nose is elegant, fruity and offers a good definition, precision, a fine minerality and tension. It reveals notes of fleshy blackberry, crushed strawberry and small notes of violet, blackcurrant associated with a touch of crushed wild raspberry as well as discreet hints of nutmeg, lily, tea, grey pepper and a very discreet hint of sweet spices. The mouth is fruity, fresh, well-balanced and offers a juicy/acidulous frame, a beautiful tension and freshness. On the mouth this wine expresses notes of ripe/juicy wild strawberry, ripe/juicy cherry and small notes of violet associated with fine touches of blackberry, nutmeg, tonka bean as well as discreet hints of nutmeg, tea, graphite and a discreet hint of caramelization and Sichuan pepper. Tannins are precise and well-built. Good length.
