  • Parker/WA : 81

Château Beychevelle is a prestigious great growth steeped in three centuries of history. Beychevelle was the fiefdom of the Ducs d'Epernon. The first duke, Jean Louis Nogaret de la Valette, French Grand Admiral, wielded enormous power. According to legend, all ships had to lower theirs sails as they sailed past the Château in hommage to its powerful owner. This accounted for the name Baisse-Voile, which changed to Beychevelle over the years. Built in the 17th century and reconstructed by the Marquis de Brassier in 1757, Château Beychevelle is one of the jewels of the entire Bordeaux region. Maintaining a wonderful balance between power and finesse, Beychevelle's wine reflects its elegant architecture. The château places great emphasis on environmental protection and health, and earned both Agriculture Raisonnée ("Sustainable Agriculture") and "Terra Vitis" certification in 2005.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Fully mature, with significant amber/orange at the edge, this light-weight wine lacks definition, as well as concentration and complexity. It exhibits a pervasive weedy, earthy character in its flavors and a sharp finish. The fruit is disappearing at an accelerated pace. I believe it to be in a decline. Last tasted, 6/93.
