Château Beychevelle is a winery that has been operating since the mid-17th century. Its ownership is currently divided 50/50 between Suntory and Castel who share management.
The château and vineyard are among the most beautiful in Médoc, earning it the name "Versailles of the Médoc". It offers a relatively large number of Merlots for a Saint-Julien AC. Its excellent location close to the Gironde Estuary fosters ripening of grapes that create florid, soft, and elegant tones. Although its true value is seen after it has aged, it can also be thoroughly enjoyed while still young.
