Joe Czerwinski (robertparker.com) "A blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 10% Syrah and 10% Rolle, it boasts floral and melon aromas, while on the palate, it's medium-bodied, plump and fleshy, with a zesty, tangerine-tinged finish."

The 2016 Beychevelle has a stunning bouquet of vibrant, shimmering blackberry and wild strawberry fruit laced with crushed stone and rose petals. The well-balanced palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and a slightly savory/dried blood finish that lingers in the mouth. Tasting both in London and in Bordeaux, I found the latter bottle to have a little more precision and race on the finish. This will surely be a benchmark for this Saint Julien estate.

Stacks of cassis, graphite and smoke on the nose of this rather full-bodied St.-Julien with a ton of velvety tannins that drive the long finish that’s simultaneously sweet, fresh and powdery. Try in 2022.
In a village in Provence, Château Miraval is surrounded by ancient woods, olive trees and vineyards.The olive groves sit high above old stone walled terraces dating back to Roman times. Organic farming and cultivation practices result in well-aerated, porous soil with a deep root system to exploit the uniqueness of the terroir. The sweet, peppery oil has notes of almond, hazelnut, and artichoke, with aromas of freshly cut grass and a spicy finish.
