2012 Les Brulières de Beychevelle, Haut-Medoc

SKU #1240563 90 points Wine Enthusiast

 This wine comes from vineyards owned by Saint-Julien Château Beychevelle that lie just outside the appellation. It’s a sophisticated wine that has great balance between the ripe black fruits and fresh acidity. Keenly structured, it has a dark texture and layers of attractive fruit and acidity. (RV)  (5/2015)

Jancis Robinson

 Deep crimson. Leafy cassis aroma. Dry but extremely creamy in texture, like a creamy coffee but with black fruits through the middle. A bit short but offering gentle pleasure. (JH)  (10/2015)

The team at Chateau Beychevelle gives us this smooth, balanced and impeccably made wine. This has loads of rich, dark fruit, great texture and hints of cocoa and cola on the tasty finish. Another not to be missed exuberant and easy to drink bottle from the affordable 2012 vintage.

This is very elegant and really a good deal for this price. Wet stone and dark chocolate along with some very welcoming notes of capsicum, cassis. It is very friendly, with a perfect balance of acidity and tannins.

Buy this wine now and enjoy the sweet aromas of toasty oak and cassis. In the moderne style but with plenty of acidity and balance. Once tasted you will drink the whole bottle quickly. Made by the Beychevelle people and I prefer this to their 2nd wine. Elegance personified with a hint of cola on the nose and roses on the palate.
Drink from 2015 to 2020

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the Médoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
