Saint-Julien 

Geology

The vineyard is established on sedimentary rock while the complex subsoil consists of different layers of gravel, marl and pebbles.

The soil of Saint-Julien is often referred to as «a geological mosaic».

Grape varieties

Cabernet-Sauvignon is the majority grape variety, building the backbone of the wine, while Merlot brings riper notes. Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc contribute to the flavor with floral hues.

Particularity

Its bouquet full of nobility assembles a rich aromatic palette (black fruits and spices in particular), contributing to the charm of its wines.

One of the finest châteaux in the Médoc, awarded the title of Fourth Grand Cru Classé in the Saint Julien appellation in 1855.

The history of Château Beychevelle dates back to the 16th century, when the estate belonged to the Foix-Candale family. Its name, derived from the expression "Baisse voile", comes from the fact that boats "lowered their sails" as they passed in front of the château when it belonged to the Governor of Guyenne in the 17th century. A past between land and sea that can be seen on the bottles.
