Description

The rigorous selection process undergone by the grand vin results in the creation of its 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.

Tasting

The 2018 vintage was the scene of a play in two acts.

A FIRST PART OF THE SEASON...
The cold and particularly rainy winter of 2018 allowed the soil to build up precious
water reserves for the rest of the season. The mild and wet spring and humid, was favourable to the development of the vine... but also to but also for mildew. Particularly careful monitoring of the vines was necessary in order to avoid losing the risk of losing the harvest.

A SECOND PART OF THE SEASON VERY DRY AND SUNNY!
Exceptionally, four dry and sunny months followed one another until the harvest. Without suffering from drought, thanks to the rainfall accumulated during the
the first period, and by alternating cool nights and hot days, the vine days, the vines benefited from optimal climatic conditions to produce to produce fresh and concentrated grapes.

This vintage shows a balance rarely achieved at this stage. The ripe red and black fruit bouquet invites us to discover an intense and intense and harmonious palate. Very silky tannins carry a fruit of freshness and concentration.
