This is the second wine of the great estate Beychevelle, in Saint Julien. Planted to 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, the vineyard has vines averaging 30 years. Thanks to the strict selection procedures used to make the Château's first wine, the second wine, Amiral de Beychevelle, benefits from high-quality grapes. Made according to the same tradition as its glorious elder, it reveals its qualities earlier, giving the wine-lover all the vivacity of youth.

Wine EnthusiastBarrel sample. This is a smooth, rich wine that's intensely concentrated and packed with great black-currant fruits. The wine has weight and a sense of structure to support the great fruitiness.

Wine SpectatorOffers a juicy feel, offering a lightly roasted cedar frame to the dark plum, blueberry and blackberry fruit flavors, with a ganache-coated finish. Approachable now, but no need to hurry. Best from 2014 through 2024.
