Château Beychevelle 2017 – Saint-Julien, Cru Classé

Château Beychevelle 2017 – Saint-Julien, Cru Classé

The nose is fruity, powerful, racy and offers a beautiful finesse of the grain as well as intensity. It reveals notes of ripe cassis, ripe wild raspberry and small notes of ripe blackberry associated with fine touches of toasted, caramelization, sweet spices as well as a very discreet hint of Bourbon vanilla and an imperceptible hint of Timut pepper. The palate is well-balanced and offers a beautiful definition, a beautiful minerality, a fresh frame (beautiful freshness), tension, elegance, finesse, juiciness, a beautiful precision as well as a very beautiful silky and delicate touch. Density as well as richness but full of elegance and an aerial side. On the palate this wine expresses note of fleshy/juicy blackberry, fleshy/juicy cassis and small notes of wild raspberry associated with a hint of small fleshy/juicy/ripe red berries, very fine hints of toasted, chocolate as well as a subtle hint of sweet spics, cardamom and an imperceptible hint of tea. Tannins are elegant, fine, precise and structuring. Beaufitul and gourmande persistence. A very discreet chew on the finish/persistence.
