One of 10 Fourth Growths listed in the Bordeaux classification of 1855, Château Beychevelle is a jewel of the Médoc, with fairytale architecture and outstanding wines to match. The label depicts a galley complete with sail, in honour of the time when the château was owned by Duc d’Epernon, Admiral of France, in the 16th century. The expression ‘baisse-vaille’ means ‘lower the sails’ and it later merged to become the name of the château – Beychevelle. Critic James Suckling called Bordeaux’s 2022 vintage “exceptional”, and Antonio Galloni said: “Forced to pick one appellation for attention, it is Saint-Julien”. This is a Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot-blend, with a dash of Petit Verdot, showing pure fruits and creamy new oak spice.

"Tannins are very well-integrated with bright fruit of currants and blackberries. Vivid and pretty" James Suckling
