The rigorous selection process undergone by the grand vin results in the creation of Chateau Beychevelle's younger brother, Amiral de Beychevelle. Despite being made from young vines, Amiral de Beychevelle benefits from the same growing techniques, meticulous sorting, and traditional barrel ageing.It has the same elegance and finesse as its older brother, but reveals its character more quickly, offering wine-enthusiasts the full vivacity of its youth. It can be kept for up to fifteen years, depending on the vintage.
91 Points - James Suckling A prestigious wine, "Cru Classé" with the soul forged by three centuries of history. A juicy red with dark-berry, chocolate and spice character. Just a hint of walnuts. Medium body, round yet firm tannins and a pretty finish. Second wine of Beychevelle.
