Tasting Notes Beychevelle 1996

88

A more mature but deeper colour compared to the '98 Beychevelle with a distinct amber/brick rim. The palate has good fruit intensity with boysenberry, briary, leather and a touch of dried herbs. Good lift. The palate is medium-bodied, cohesive, a bit light on the middle, perhaps more advanced than I would prefer for a '96 but an assertive on the finish with hints of cooked game and spice. Good length with a pleasing austere finish. Fine. Drink now-2015. Tasted May 2008.

Beychevelle's 1996 reveals an evolved, dark plum color. The nose offers toasty new oak in an open, charming style with berry fruit intermixed with spice. It is an uninspiring example, particularly for such a top-notch terroir, but the wine is medium-bodied and cleanly made, with moderate longevity. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2012.
