Chateau Beauvillage 2014
- Merlot,Cabernet Sauvignon
Deep colour. Open nose of jammy fruits (fig, plums). On the palate the style is rather open, dense with a good structure, fruit intertwined with oaky and spicy notes, and firm tannin, a guarantee of a good ageing potential. To taste at 17-C over steaks, cooked poultry and strong cheeses
The 2014 Château Beauvillage offer a nice mix of blackberries, cassis, toast, spices, sweet pipe tobacco all take shape in the glass. Medium bodied, balanced and velvety with plenty of sweet cassis and spices which work their way through the finish. A lovely showing which is accessible now and should also handle some short-term cellaring. (Best 2017-2023) - May, 2017 (JD)-International Wine Report-91 Points
