1945 Beychevelle, St-Julien

SKU #1205872

This fourth growth estate in St-Julien is located on a plateau and boasts well-draining gravel soils that are similar to Latour. The estate makes classically styled Bordeaux that are suited to long aging. Neal Martin writes on the historic vintage in Vinous: "For certain, it is clear that after 75 years, many Bordeaux wines still brim with vigor and often gift a profound sense of pleasure. It is strange to think that some of these 1945s will outlive the countless men and women who served in World War II. It is fascinating how many share a eucalyptus scent, a signature not just of Mouton-Rothschild but of many wines across Bordeaux and even the Vintage Port. That must surely derive from the concentrated berries and the volatile acidity that imparts an exotic allure. ... Time marches on, yet we must never forget what happened lest we repeat the past. So, on the infrequent occasion you might find yourself in front of a bottle of 1945, raise a toast and remember not just the significance of that year, but those who made it possible for us to enjoy our freedom."
