2003 4ème Cru Classé Saint Julien
|Grapes||Cab Franc, Merlot, Cab Sauv|
|Classification||4ème Cru Classé|
53% Cabernet sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot. As seems to have become the norm, it takes a massively concentrated year for Beychevelle to pull out something medium-bodied. This is very nice - there is a freshness of fruit and good rich consistency and nice length. L&S (Mar 2005)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Given the performance of this somewhat mystifying but beautifully situated estate in St.-Julien, we might be seeing a resurrection in quality, or at least much more consistency. A beauty in an up-front, supple, sexy style is the generous and savory, dark ruby /plum-colored 2003 Beychevelle. Medium to full-bodied with loads of fruit and glycerin, it is much more approachable than usual, but also generously proportioned and exceptionally well-balanced. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2022.
