Producer Notes

Built in magnificent 18th century Louis XV style, Chateau Beychevelle sits in the St. Julien district of the Medoc, with neighbors including Chateau Gloria and Chateau St. Pierre.

RP: Recently consistently scoring in the 94-96 point range. Beautifully sweet, slightly herbaceous black currant,licorice aned earthy notes emerge from this nearly opaque, dark ruby/purple-tingeed 1982. Compared ot the more elegant, femine-stype wine often produceed here, it isa best. Dense, thick, rich concentrated and impressive, it can be drunk now and over the next two decades.

This is the finest Beychevelle produced over the last forty years. It reveals the estate's tell-tale elegance in addition to a level of density, muscle, and richness that is rarely found in more recent vintages. A dense ruby/garnet color is followed by a classy nose of black fruits, licorice, minerals, and toast. Ripe, sweet, and thick, with low acidity, medium to full body, impressive richness, light to moderate tannin, and a long finish,
