Made with a Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot grapes from Saint-Julien, this Haut-Médoc is an exclusive quality cuvee by Château Beychevelle. It is full of elegance and finesse that exudes a beautiful ruby red color.
This medium to full-bodied red wine has aromas of dark fruit and mineral, and flavors of oak, berry, and plum.
This is a wine that is very easy and pleasant to drink, and would be great to pair with beef, lamb, game, poultry, and grilled meats.
Château Beychevelle was built in the 18th century, in the Saint-Julien district of the Haut-Médoc. Its name was given to honor the first Duke of Epernon, a great French admiral and the previous owner of the estate. Boats that passed in front of his estate would lower their sails in respect and allegiance to this man of great repute. Thus, the emblem of the chateau is a ship, and its name comes from the Gascon, “Bêcha vela,” which meant “baisse voile” or “lower the sails, and later on evolved to Beychevelle.
A 4eme Cru Classe chateau, Beychevelle produces blends of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot.
