Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateau Beychevelle 4eme Cru 2016


Lobenberg: Archetypisch Saint Julien und mit seiner Opulenz und schokoladigen Kirsche ein echter Vorzeigewein für das elegante, gleichwohl klassische Jahr, als aber auch für die Appellation, die so gut der Mittler zwischen der profunden Tiefe Margauxs und der drahtig maskulinen Eleganz von Pauillac ist. Im Zweifel immer einen Saint Julien nehmen und Beychevelle gehört ganz sicher zur ersten Reihe. 96-98/100


Parker über: Chateau Beychevelle 4eme Cru

-- Parker: he 2016 Beychevelle is a blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc cropped at 45 hectoliters per hectare between 3 October and 18 October. It is matured in 50% new oak. Furthermore, it is the first vintage to be matured in the new chichi winery whose glass exterior overlooks the passing traffic on the D2. It has a very pure, fragrant bouquet with black cherries, cassis, cedar and wet limestone, extremely precise to the point where you might think it was from the Right Bank (logical given the proportion of Merlot in the blend). The palate is sensational: understated at first and bridled with ultra-fine tannin, it is a Beychevelle armed with a disarming sense of symmetry. It builds in the mouth towards a fabulously tensile finish that is so fresh and full of energy that the senses are almost overwhelmed. Frankly, it leaves all the other Beychevelles in recent years standing. This is an electrifying 2016 from winemaker Philippe Blanc and his right-hand man, technical director, Romain Ducolomb. 96-98/100


Wine Enthusiast über: Chateau Beychevelle 4eme Cru

-- Wine Enthusiast: With tannins that are beautifully integrated into the rich black-fruit flavors, this is already a well-balanced wine. It is solid and will last, though the attractiveness of the fruit is already there. 94–96/100


Suckling über: Chateau Beychevelle 4eme Cru

-- Suckling: The softness and finesse to this are indeed impressive with blackberry and blackcurrant character. Full-bodied, dense and polished. Lovely texture and length. It builds on the palate. Clearly better in 2015. This is the first year in from the new cellar. 94-95/100


Winespectator über: Chateau Beychevelle 4eme Cru

-- Winespectator: A textbook St.-Julien in the making, with crushed plum and warm cassis notes inlaid with anise and graphite accents. The muscular, driven finish is just a touch chewy in feel but gets soaked up quickly on the finish by the pure fruit. Really solid. 93-96/100
