2019 CHÂTEAU BEYCHEVELLE, ST.-JULIEN

A large print of the Beychevelle label stares down at us in the office, with its familiar image of a sailing ship, commemorating the admiral who once owned the Château.  Passing ships were required to lower their sales in his honour.  The resemblance to a 'dragon boat' has made this a collectable wine in China and Beychevelle, resulting in a positive effect on its potential as an investment-grade wine.  Quality is improving and Jane Anson describes the 2019 as a 'confident and well expressed Beychevelle' (94 points). 

 

 

At £657 IB, this is the cheapest Beychevelle on the market (all other vintages are trading above £700) and is 8.7% below the release price of the 2018 (£720)

Offered En Primeur, landing Spring 2022.

Producer Profile

Château Beychevelle, Cru Classé St.-Julien

Château Beychevelle is a Quatrièmes Cru Classé in Saint-Julien.  A large print of the Beychevelle label stares down at us in the office, with its familiar image of a sailing ship, commemorating the admiral who once owned the Château.  Passing ships were required to lower their sales in his honour.  The resemblance to a 'dragon boat' has made this a collectable wine in China and Beychevelle, resulting in a positive effect on its potential as an investment-grade wine. 

The 90-hectare estate is run by Philippe Blanc.  The classical château was built in the 17th century, reconstructed by the Marquis de Brassier in 1757, and extended by the Heine family at the end of the 19th century.
