Château Beychevelle 2016 – Saint-Julien, Cru Classé

Château Beychevelle 2016 – Saint-Julien, Cru Classé

The nose is elegant, fine, fresh and offers a beautiful racy power. It reveals notes of ripe/fresh blackberry, gravels (terroir) and small notes of fresh strawberry/blackberry associated with very fine touches of lily, lilac as well as fine hints of tonka bean, toasted, very discreet hints of exotic spices as well as a very discreet hint of Cuben pepper and an imperceptible hint of incense. The palate is fresh, fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, juiciness, precision, a fine straightness, a fine tension, delicacy as well as gourmandize. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy/fresh raspberry, juicy/fresh cherry and small notes of juicy/fresh blackberry associated with fine touches of racy minerality (terroir/gravels), flowers as well as very discreet hints of toasted, tonka bean as well as a subtle hint of spices. Tannins are elegant and finely chewy.
