Château Beauvillage Médoc 2018
- Textured, savoury
Château Beauvillage makes one wine and one wine only. They’ve been at it this way since 1925. Good thing they are so skilled at it. Year after year, it delivers its distinctive character. The winemaker adapts the fermentation process to the specific vintage conditions, but always keeping the blend the same - 55% merlot and 45% cabernet sauvignon.
The 2018 edition saw 12 months in toasted French oak before bottling. It’s wonderfully complex and aromatic with ripe fruit notes of cherry and plum with hints of cedar, mocha and smoke behind the scenes. The tannins are silky and lead to a lingering finish. This is a wine of richness and structure, something both hedonistic and serious at the same time.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.
