Beychevelle appears to have handled the 2011 vintage in an intelligent manner, producing a soft, round, attractive, medium-bodied wine that, while not terribly deep or powerful, is well-balanced with excellent equilibrium and lots of dusty, loamy soil notes interwoven with black cherry and plummy fruit. This pretty St.-Julien can be drunk over the next decade. Wine Advocate.April, 2014

The Beychevelle 2011 is a blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot that was picked between 14th and 29th September, with twelve days of picking between those dates. The yield is one of Beychevelle’s lowest at 39.5hl/ha with 13.2% alcohol and an IPT of 78. It has decent concentration on the nose, red rather than black fruit: raspberry, cranberry and a touch of pomegranate struck through with graphite and tobacco. It is medium-bodied with chalky tannins on the entry that is showing a little grittiness and chalkiness to its texture. It has crisp acidity and firm backbone with a grainy, masculine, tobacco tinged, tapered finish that is a little raw at present. Tasted April 2012. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

A medium-bodied, pleasant, lighter style of St.-Julien, the 2011 Beychevelle reveals a dark plum/ruby color in addition to notes of strawberries, black cherries, new saddle leather and hints of herbs and earth. Refreshing and delicate, it should drink well for 10-15 years. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate February 2012

Plenty of blueberry and currant character with soft and velvety tannins and a pretty balance of fruit, alcohol and bright acidity. Nicely done. jamessuckling.com

This has good ripe plum and black cherry fruit woven with a currant eau-de-vie aroma. There's fine-grained structure and an easy, vanilla-tinged finish. Not as dense as the top St.-Juliens. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

Deep crimson. Delicately, leafily fragrant. On the lighter side but the tannins reined in to keep the balance. Finishes dry but still fragrant. jancisrobinson.com

With lead pencil, cedar and cassis, the wine is medium bodied and tannic, ending with bright cassis and cranberry. theWineCellarInsider.com

Nice concentration and density here compared to other St Julien reds. Good to see that the winemaking team was able to balance the dense tannins with the fresh flavour profile. Flavours range from cassis, blackberries to fresh Chinese red dates. A great Beychevelle given the vintage conditions. AsianPalate.com

This appears to be the most rustic of all the more famous St Juliens in 2011. It has a meaty nose and a rather unapologetic brand of tannin. Will be interesting to see if this pulls together after another year in barrel.
