Château Beychevelle Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

$129

Deep ruby/purple in color, with a sweet nose of black currants, earth, licorice, and mineral, the 2000 is relatively powerful and dense for the normally restrained and elegant Beychevelle. Medium to full-bodied, dense, and chewy, it is showing even better out of bottle than it was from cask. While it appears to be the finest example made at Beychevelle since the 1989 and 1982, patience will be required. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020. Robert Parker

Good funk. Smoky, nutty and in a drinking window that is showing its class.

Brett bomb. Too much band-aid overpowers the wine. One dimensional. Med tannins.

Incredible, musky taste with a remarkably bright cherry overtone. Dry to the finish with hints of pepper on the edge of the tongue.

Earthy, but delicious on the palate. Soft with little acidity, it can still cellar for another 10 years, but drinking well now.
