  • Neal Martin, April 2023, Score: 95-97

    The 2022 Beychevelle was picked between 12-29 September at 36hL/ha, matured in 70% new oak. It has an intense bouquet with black cherries, blueberry and touches of cassis and violet. Not as ostentatious as some other Saint-Julien wines at this early stage, but delineated, and it positively brims with energy. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit framed by beautifully-sculpted tannins. The 2022 is very harmonious, satin-like in texture, and gently fans out toward the finish. It ends up being one of the most seductive Beychevelles I have tasted from barrel, one not to be overlooked. Chapeau, Mr. White! 14.08% alcohol. Drink 2030-2065

  • Wine Advocate, April 2023, Score: 92-94

    Unwinding in the glass with aromas of dark berries, cherries and cassis mingled with hints of violets and licorice, framed by creamy new oak, the 2022 Beychevelle is medium to full-bodied, velvety and layered, with a fleshy core of fruit framed by rich, unusually suave and polished tannins in the context of recent vintages at this address. It's a blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot, with a pH of 3.85, quite typical for this address.

  • Antonio Galloni, April 2023, Score: 94-96

    The 2022 Beychevelle is fabulous. In most recent vintages Beychevelle has been a flamboyant, extravagant Saint-Julien, but in 2022 is its surprisingly vibrant and fresh, almost shockingly so. Ripe red cherry/plum fruit, blood orange, rose petal and spice are all beautifully delineated. More than anything, I admire the wine’s freshness and drive, qualities that have not often been present in recent vintages. That makes the 2022 one of my favorite recent vintages here. Tasted three times.

  • Goedhuis, April 2023, Score: 94-96

    A plush and exotic wine with 42% Merlot balancing the Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. Scents of spice, vanilla oak and ripe bramble fruits sing from the glass. Juicy and flavoursome, with dark chocolate and coffee bean, the fullness is kept nicely in check by a firm tannic integrity, leading to a satisfyingly persistent finish.

  • James Suckling, April 2023, Score: 94-95

    The tannins are very well-integrated with lovely bright fruit of currants and blackberries. Medium to full body. Vivid and pretty. 54% cabernet sauvignon, 42% merlot and 4% petit verdot.

  • Jancis Robinson, April 2023, Score: 17.5

    Fragrant and floral on the nose. Lovely texture and tannins, the palate satiny and fine. Pure, fresh and long as well. Nothing overstated and plenty of charm. (James Lawther MW). Drink 2030-2045.

  • Jane Anson, April 2023, Score: 93

    Silky and supple fruit and texture, this is impressive, with carefully built architecture, and clear ageing potential. Conveys the creamy ripe fruits of the vintage but sets them in a serious tannic frame, with bitter chocolate and slate character. Heat climbs on the finish, but the St Julien fresh mint leaf signoff comes in to keep things balanced. 36hl/h yield, 60% new oak.

  • Jeb Dunnuck, April 2023, Score: 95-97+

    I was able to taste the 2022 Château Beychevelle on multiple occasions, and it never failed to impress me. Based on 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot that will see 18 months in 70% new oak, it's one of those wines that makes you stop and say "wow" due to its purity, depth, and texture. Sporting a dense purple hue as well as lots of blueberry and black cherry fruits, it's full-bodied and has a layered, seamless mouthfeel, building yet gorgeous tannins, and subtle background notes of crushed violets, flowers, and graphite. This is a sensational effort from director Philippe Blanc.

  • Matthew Jukes, April 2023, Score: 18+

    Château Beychevelle (4ème Cru Saint-Julien) 54 Cabernet Sauvignon, 42 Merlot, 4 Petit Verdot 70% new oak 14% alc Beychevelle is always a textural treat, and this 2022 is no exception. Tender, refreshing and with lovely silkiness, there is so much to admire here, and the superb volume of juicy fruit is counterbalanced by vivid freshness and amazing length. Pure, bright, actively tannic, and invigorating, this is a classic vintage for Beychevelle and a wine that will age slowly and deliberately for a long time.

Particularly prized amongst the Asian market, this estate is renowned for producing wines of superb concentration and power with excellent ageing potential. In the words of Decanter’s Jane Anson, this château is “one of the most vibrant in Bordeaux right now”.Read less

Region

St Julien

St Julien is like the middle child of the Médoc - not as assertive as Pauillac or as coquettish as Margaux. It lies firmly between the two more outspoken communes and as a result produces a blend of them both. St Julien's wines have often been sought out by aficionados for their balance and consistency, particularly in the UK. Yet due to its middle child nature, it can occasionally be overlooked globally and as a result underrated by those markets outside the UK. Despite the fact that it has no first growths, it has several second growths including Léoville Las Cases, Léoville Barton, Léoville Poyferré and Ducru Beaucaillou as well as the celebrated châteaux such as Talbot and Beychevelle.
