Description

This is the only vintage of Beychevelle’s last three to have a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon. Given that the estate achieved a yield of 47 hl/ha when its neighbours were in the low 30s, this is somewhat surprising. The additional Cabernet looks to have tuned down some of the delicious immediacy of recent years. Along with the sumptuous mulberry and buttered-toast notes, there is some Asian spice and a remarkable level of freshness. The 2020 Beychevelle has lost none of its seductive qualities but has gained another notch of gravitas.
