1982 Chateau Beychevelle 75cl
A bottle of 1982 Château Beychevelle Grand Vin from Bordeaux's Saint-Julien appellation.
Beychevelle was classified as a 'Fourth Growth' in the 1855 Bordeaux Classification, and its 88 hectares of vineyards are planted with 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot.
'Beautifully sweet, slightly herbaceous black currant, licorice, and earthy notes emerge from this nearly opaque, dark ruby/purple-tinged 1982. Compared to the more elegant, feminine-styled wine often produced here, it is a beast. Dense, thick, rich, concentrated, and impressive, it can be drunk now and over the next two decades. 94/100' Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, 2009
