2009 Château Beychevelle displays not only finesse and balance, but also enormous power. It can undoubtedly be considered as one of the estate’s historic vintages, and we will be delighted to compare it
with other great years.
Black fruit, sweet spices, and light tobacco; rounded on the palate, Château Beychevelle 2009 is characterized by finesse and balance.
The wine is deep in color, with a lovely tint of garnet. The nose is complex, its numerous traits dominated by a note of fresh black fruits (blackberries, black cherries) but also with an elegant floral touch. The attack is gentle and supple, full and generous in the mouth thereafter, and finally yielding truly voluptuous sensations in a very long finish.
The 2009 Ducru-Beaucaillou boasts a beautiful deep violet robe. In the mouth, it exhibits a thick and luscious structure, as well as dense, albeit velvety and elegant, tannins. Its fruit is at once rich and dazzling and its finish silky smooth and wonderfully persistent.
Colour: very deep, dark colour. Brilliant.
Nose: very fresh, spicy, empyreumatic (hints of coffee)
Attack: powerful and fleshy.
Palate: plenty of freshness, beautifully fine and elegant tannins.
Really persistent and powerful, reminiscent of the great vintages to keep.
Colour: blackish and deep.
Nose: extremely complex with aromas of ripe fruit and spice, liquorice along with empyreumatic, toasty notes.
Attack: powerful and fresh.
Palate: dense and plump, with silky, ripe tannins.
2008, the great classical latecomer !
A very dense, almost black colour, with a pure, jammy nose. On the palate, there are hints
of liquorice, cashew nuts and vanilla. A rich, remarkably smooth structure. The finish is
exceptionally long, with plenty of finesse and elegance. Saint-Pierre 2005 will certainly be
a great wine to lay down.
