Chateau Beychevelle

This fourth growth has around 77 hectares of vines in the St.-Julien appellation, the heart of them bordering Ducru-Beaucaillou. The Japanese firm Suntory have owned a large stake in the property since the 1980s and, along with Castel Group, are the ultimate owners today. With around 60% Cabernet, the style here has always been supple and smooth, yet with great capacity to age and whilst the wines are no longer the bargain they were 25 years ago, they can still represent good value.
