The 2000 vintage is characterised by its very clean, pleasant, nicely-pronounced fruity qualities (blackberries and cherry) and flesh with great length in the mouth and good acidity providing nice balance. The tannins are present - ripe and in no way astringent. This vintage has more tannic structure than the last and has great ageing potential. Probably the best wine in the last 10 years. 49% Cabernet Sauvignon 38% Merlot 7% Cabernet Franc 6% Petit Verdot

Wonderful floral and blackberry aromas follow through to a compressed palate of full-bodied tannins and ripe fruit. Yet very fine and silky on the palate. Best Beychevelle I have had in years. Best after 2009. 2,200 cases made.

If any wine could be described as beautiful, then Beychevelle is beautiful. Its flavors of liquorice and blackcurrant are smooth and opulent, well proportioned. The texture is rich, ripe and generous.

"Deep ruby/purple in color, with a sweet nose of black currants, earth, licorice, and mineral, the 2000 is relatively powerful and dense for the normally restrained and elegant Beychevelle. Medium to full-bodied, dense, and chewy, it is showing even better out of bottle than it was from cask. While it appears to be the finest example made at Beychevelle since the 1989 and 1982, patience will be required. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020."
