Château Beychevelle, 4ème cru classé 2009

RRP £92

Beychevelle, with its dragon boat symbol on the label, is known for yielding impressive returns thanks to its appeal in China. The château also happens to make excellent wines. This vintage has a quivering, crystalline bouquet of bilberry and cassis. In the mouth, pure, sweet, succulent and juicy (characteristically) blue fruit. Sweet, extracted to perfection, this wine boasts mouth-coating seduction and admirable length.
