jebdunnuck.com, April 2024

I love the 2005 Château Beychevelle, a beautifully complex, nuanced, medium-bodied Saint- Julien that has pure crème de cassis and darker fruits as well as smoked tobacco, truffly earth, and graphite nuances. It’s not a...

janeanson.com, May 2024

Still vibrant and young at 19 years old, full of charm, silky textured tannins that are well integrated but still very much cradling the fruit, with waves of cigar box, crushed rocks, earth, saffron and tobacco. Great...

The Wine Independent, July 2022

The 2005 Beychevelle is composed of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, and 4% Petit Verdot. Deep brick in color, it skips out with shimmery, care-free scents of kirsch, raspberry pie, blackcurrant...

TheWineCellarInsider.com, September 2022

Medium-bodied, crisp, and crunchy with accents of tobacco leaf, cedar, cigar box, and flowers, the wine is fresh, as well as firm on the currant-filled palate. Drink from 2022-2037.

Wine Enthusiast, June 2008

Very much in an elegant style, this wine shows soft, almost velvet tannins supporting the ripe fruit. It has richness, a round character masking the dense texture, and setting off the clean red berry fruits and fresh...

Decanter, June 2021

The 2005 vintage produced a seductive effort from Beychevelle, with lush plum and mulberry fruit accented with pepper and anise on the nose. The dense, silky texture hints at the relatively large proportion of Merlot in...

Vinous, March 2023

The 2005 Beychevelle has an attractive nose with brambly red fruit, marmalade, cedar and light leather aromas. This is just a little rustic, yet full of vigor and presence. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins...

Wine & Spirits, October 2008

We hit Beychevelle at a fragrant, gentle moment in its evolution. With a few hours of air, the wine was a lithe beauty, its cool red fruit giving a soft, sculpted feel. My notes are all about elegance, finesse and...

Neal Martin's Wine Journal, February 2015

The Château Beychevelle 2005 has a comparatively rich and opulent bouquet, which is quite unexpected, offering with sensual, ripe black cherry and boysenberry fruit, fresh mint and licorice. It has retained that...
