The rigorous selection process undergone by the grand vin results in the creation of its younger brother, Amiral de Beychevelle.Despite being made from young vines, Amiral de Beychevelle benefits from the same growing techniques, meticulous sorting, and traditional barrel ageing.It has the same elegance and finesse as its older brother, but reveals its character more quickly, offering wine-enthusiasts the full vivacity of its youth. It can be kept for up to fifteen years, depending on the vintage.
This masterfully crafted wine offers both to the nose and the palate an abundance of rich and ripe flavours (spices, black fruits, cigar box aromas and toasty new oak). It is opulent, almost decadent in style, with exotic fruit overflowing from the glass ! Perfect for drinking now and will age beautifully for another 5-6 years.Ideal with with red meats (magret, game, rack of lamb, …) and cheeses. Of course, excellent as well as pre-dinner drink!
