Showing better from bottle than it did from barrel, where it was also impressive, but not quite at this level, the 2010 Beychevelle displays sweet black currant, black cherry, foresty notes, medium to full-bodied texture with impressive purity and moderately high tannins (although they’ve softened considerably during the wine’s upbringing in barrel). Layered and rich for a Beychevelle, this wine should easily withstand three decades of cellaring. I would give it another 3-4 years of bottle age, but this is a fabulous effort from the first chateau one sees upon entering the appellation of St.-Julien. Wine Advocate.February, 2013

The Beychevelle 2010 displays very good intensity on the nose with dark berries, a touch of Dorset plum and an almost Margaux-like floral element. The palate is full-bodied, certainly a very powerful Saint Julien that reminds me of Ducru Beaucaillou. Enormous structure on the palate, silky smooth tannins, very nice symmetry with notes of blackberry, cedar and a touch of allspice. The rounded finish belies the backbone underneath although you can feel the grip on the aftertaste. This is as good as the 2009, but more masculine and will need longer to reach its plateau. Tasted March 2011. Neal Martin erobertparker.com

Mineral, lemon grass and berries on the nose. Full bodied, with ultra-fine tannins and a wonderful finish. Lasts for minutes. This is the best Beychevelle in years. Maybe decades.jamessuckling.com

Juicy, with a beam of cassis and spice bread, laced with smoke, graphite and crushed plum on the velvety finish. James Molseworth, winespectator.com

Medium intense colour, with a slightly simple toasty oak nose. Pretty chewy palate. Very dry tannins! Very pure expression but it will need a great deal of time to show itself in any flattering light. jancisrobinson.com

Beautifully concentrated cassis fruit, lovely aromatics on the nose, fine middle palate and good grippy tannins, a very good Beychevelle. Drink 2018-30. Steven Spurrier, decanter.com

The vanguard of draconine ultramarine red flows to crimson lake, from which a light breeze of mayflower and frankincense wings past the nose.A supple sheet of webbed tannins is lowered onto the tongue to become furled with layers of black cherries, blackcurrants, cranberries, figs and almonds.Floating into the mid-palate of peaches, rich crystallised fruits on oak and polished cedar, the transit continues to a long finish in its serpentine wake.A tribute to the château on dry land, the 2010 is almost approachable and will increase in intensity as its goes on its course through the ‘forties.

Beychevelle A blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot create a structured, masculine, four-square styled wine dominated by fresh, ripe, cassis notes. This old school style of wine will please some tasters more than it did me. winecellarinsider.com

The deep ruby 2010 Beychevelles has subtle aromatics of plummy and blackberry fruits, with dense tannins and a warm generosity on the palate. This is clearly a well-made, restrained style of wine, classic in approach with good balance and a fairly long finish, and one of the best recent Beychevelles for laying down. asianpalate.com

Meaty masculine nose, severely tannic butthewaves of fresh, ripe fruit underneath are sensational. Lovely creamy, silky finish. This is very, very good this year.
