    April 17, 2021 - On continue les tests avec les Bordeaux 2016 après Calon-Ségur il y a 2 semaines et celui-çi ne déçoit pas non pas. Wow toute qu'une substance dans ce vin et c'est déjà approchable (assez pour avoir du plaisir à tout de moins). Ce Beychevelle fait très rive-gauche avec de belle note de cèdre, d'herbes séchées et cassis. La couleur est moyennement foncé avec de bon tannins mais somme toute déjà un peu fondue. Ce sera une belle bouteille dans 10-15 ans, mais l'expérience de les essayer en jeunesse est concluante.

    October 17, 2020 - Good Bordeaux, but not great, and not more than 92 points. Wont but another bottle, also pricey.

    July 18, 2020 - I must admit, along with Lagrange, this St. Julian holds a special place for yours truly. This is possibly my favorite vintage in quite some time. Black cherry, blackberry, currant, tobacco leaf, mineral and flower shop. Full in body and long in regards to finish. Deep and velvety tannins, that still keep the requisite focus. So good now, in a very surprising way. This classic wonder will age very well. There’s a welcomed wild side to this... Drink 2021 -.
