Château Beychevelle, AOC Saint Julien 2016

RRP £70

The first vintage since the estate constructed its aesthetically gorgeous cellar space, which adds precision to the winemaking, surpassing the already impressive 2010 and 2015 vintages, which we also tasted on this visit. Sumptuous yet linear, this wine exhibits lovely ripe fruit, leading to a precise, smooth finish.
