Chateau Beychevelle – St Julien 2017
About The Brand
Chateau Beychevelle is a prestigious Classified Growth with a soul forged by three centuries of history and legends. Indeed, over the centuries, powerful families have marked this castle in many ways. Under Henry II in particular, Beychevelle was the stronghold of the Dukes of Epernon. The first of them, Jean-Louis Nogaret of Valletta, is at the origin of the name of the Domain. According to the legend, the ships passing in front of his castle had to lower their sails in sign of allegiance. Built in 1757, Chateau Beychevelle is still one of Bordeaux’s finest. Since the Middle Ages, the owners of the Chateau have endowed the estate with the best parcels and perpetuated over the centuries the tradition that still presides over the destiny of this Grand Cru Classe in 1855.
