Château Beychevelle 2007
The colour is a deep ruby of remarkable density, a precursor of fine maturity and richness. Fruit aromas of cherries, black fruit and blueberry dominate the nose. Woody notes are perceptible, but not over powering. In the mouth there is a freshness on the attack, hints of black fruit, cherries; the structure is elegant, the tannins mature and silky. This wine is very clear, direct but highly appealing with no harshness or austerity. It has density, balance and fleshiness. The length builds into a long, delicious finish. Maturing will allow this wine to develop even more numerous and complex nuances of aroma and taste, making it even more attractive with age.
