Tasting Notes Beychevelle 2005

92

Tasted at BBR’s 2005/2009 tasting in London. There is an almost pastille like purity on the nose of the Beychevelle ’05 with cranberry, raspberry, wild strawberry and a touch of thyme and Italian dried meat. Good underlying mineralite here. The palate is medium-bodied with dry tannins on the entry, much more introverted than the nose with fresh black fruit, tobacco and graphite. It is a little tight on the finish at the moment but it will mellow with time. Tasted July 2011.

While this is a strong effort from a property that too often does not live up to its pedigree, I had hoped the 2005 Beychevelle would merit an even higher score. A deep ruby/purple hue is accompanied by a sweet perfume of roasted herbs, black cherries, and even blacker fruits. The wine is medium to full-bodied with sweet tannin, good acidity, and a fruitcake-like spiciness and earthiness. Pure and long with a tannic clout that is neither intrusive nor excessive, this elegant, powerful effort should be at its finest between 2017-2030.
