The Beychevelle 2010 displays very good intensity on the nose with dark berries a touch of Dorset plum and an almost Margaux-like floral element. The palate is full-bodied certainly a very powerful Saint Julien that reminds me of Ducru Beaucaillou. Enormous structure on the palate silky smooth tannins very nice symmetry with notes of blackberry cedar and a touch of allspice. The rounded finish belies the backbone underneath although you can feel the grip on the aftertaste. This is as good as the 2009 but more masculine and will need longer to reach its plateau. Drink 2018-

Beautiful aromas of blackberries, currants and flowers. Very aromatic. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and gorgeous fruit. It's polished and very refined. One of the best Beychevelles in years. Try in 2018.

It’s a pure-fruited, ripe and lightly tannic wine, emphasizing a blackberry note. This will evolve relatively quickly, reaching a peak in approximately eight years.

Showing better from bottle than it did from barrel, where it was also impressive, but not quite at this level, the 2010 Beychevelle displays sweet black currant, black cherry, foresty notes, medium to full-bodied texture... Showing better from bottle than it did from barrel, where it was also impressive, but not quite at this level, the 2010 Beychevelle displays sweet black currant, black cherry, foresty notes, medium to full-bodied texture with impressive purity and moderately high tannins (although they’ve softened considerably during the wine’s upbringing in barrel). Layered and rich for a Beychevelle, this wine should easily withstand three decades of cellaring. I would give it another 3-4 years of bottle age, but this is a fabulous effort from the first chateau one sees upon entering the appellation of St.-Julien. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Features a gutsy feel, displaying dark, roasted cedar and tobacco notes framing a core of steeped fig, blackberry paste and plum skin that rumbles through the tarry finish. Shows strong grip on the back end, with the briary edge extending nicely. Best from 2016 through 2035. – JM

Lively aromas of cassis, black cherry, licorice and flowers. Gripping and energetic, with captivating flowers and spices lifting the medicinal dark berry, licorice and mineral flavors. More intense than usual for this property: the tannins are serious but suave and this very youthful wine appears to have the density of material for two or three decades of evolution in bottle. It may well ultimately merit a higher score.

A blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon 38% Merlot 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot create a structured masculine four-square styled wine dominated by fresh ripe cassis notes. This old school style of wine will please some tasters more than it did me.

Yields of 45 hl/ha. Inviting notes of blackberry and boysenberry burst from the glass on a big perfumed nose. Very fine and precise tannins are elegantly balanced with the dark fruit on the structured palate which offers beautiful length. This is a fine example of power and class that should stand the test of time. Drink 2020-2040.
