Buy Ch Beychevelle 2009
Wine Advocate 93 points - The finest Beychevelle since the 2003 and probably since the 1982, Beychevelle?s 2009 is opaque purple in color, with a beautiful, floral nose intermixed with black currant fruit, licorice, cedar wood and Christmas fruitcake. Full-bodied yet still elegant and pure, this wine has velvety tannins, a broad, savory mouthfeel, and a very long finish. There is plenty of tannin behind the extravagant fruit, glycerin and texture of this wine, but it is largely concealed. This wine could actually turn out to be even better than my relatively conservative tasting note. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2042.  (Feb 2012)

Wine Spectator 92 points - This has the dark, winey cassis bush and roasted plum fruit of the appellation, but steps up the integration and length, with racy Linzer torte and graphite notes and a lovely tobacco-filled finish supported by mouthwatering acidity. Best from 2014 through 2026.óJ.M. (Jan 25 2012)
