The 2021 Beychevelle is a strong effort, exhibiting aromas of sweet berries and plums mingled with cigar wrappers and fresh mint. Medium to full-bodied, bright, and fine-boned, it's deep and layered, with powdery tannins, lively acids, and a saline finish. This wine only improved over the five times I tasted it. ~91-94 WA
Darkly herbal, spiced, and perfumed nose. Supple, fruity, forward, and lively, this has an initial vivacious and pulsing energy that settles giving some green pepper, eucalyptus, and cedar notes as well as licorice and clove which then dominate the finish. It starts well, with such pace, and you feel the fruit has been well worked with tannins that are silky and fine. This has density and chews which I love as well as structure and backbone wine overall finesse. Great potential here. Drinking Window 2025 - 2048 ~94 Decanter
From the southern edge of the appellation and a blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, it sports a vivid purple hue to go with terrific aromatics of darker fruits, tobacco, roasted coffee, and loamy earth. This round, medium-bodied, plump, forward, yet undeniably delicious 2021 is going to drink nicely right out of the gate. Harvest here spanned from September 27 to October 8, and the wine will spend 18 months in roughly 70% new French oak. ~91-94 J. Dunnuck
The 2021 Beychevelle is rich and sumptuous, but not quite as pushed in that direction as some recent vintages have been. Then again, that sort of opulence was simply not possible in 2021. Even so, the 2021 flows with dark blue/purplish fruit, incense, espresso, mocha, menthol, and licorice. All the elements are so well balanced. The 2021 is a terrific Beychevelle with a bright future. ~92-94 Antoni Galloni, Vinous Media
