94 points Vinous: "It has a strict, almost broody bouquet of dense, graphite-infused black fruit. The palate is more a mixture of red and black fruit and fine-grained tannin, very harmonious in style; touches of pencil lead appear on the precise, sustained finish.

96 points Wine & Spirits: "This grows at high altitudes, inhigh-density plantings on ancient terraces above the Ebro river, some of the vines dating to 1946, the youngest planted in 1986. Those alluvial soils and old vines performed remarkably well in 2016, delivering a fresh blend—Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano—with cool, silken tannins and the sort of peppery spice you might find in fresh-pressed olive oil. It’s bright and juicy, layering thyme and rosemary fragrance into the fruit complexity. A glorious young Rioja suited to aging, or to ...

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This one of a pair of wines that are produced by Château Beychevelle in Saint-Julien from vines in the neighboring Haut-Médoc appellation.

There is not a ton of subtlety here, but I am not sure that matters all that much given how immensely pleasing the 2016 is. Crushed rocks, graphite, lavender, blackberry, plum, and violet infuse a Saint-Émilion that offers tremendous textural richness as well as vibrancy. Most importantly of all, the 2016 is flat-out delicious. This is a decidedly opulent, dark Saint-Émilion with all of the elements impeccably balanced. I loved it.

This is the continuation of the old Z bottling, but here the wine is aged mostly in 2,500-liter oak vats rather than in smaller barriques. There are herbal notes reminiscent of green tea leaves, spices and berries.
