Brulieres de Beychevelle is owned by Chateau Beychevelle who are based in St Julien. Being further from the Gironde estuary, they benefit from a cooler climate. The vineyard is in the Haut-Médoc appellation and has been managed organically since 2008. Brulières’ blend consists of two grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Vinified and aged in a separate winery, it is produced with the same level of care as Château Beychevelle and Amiral de Beychevelle. “This third wine under the fourth-growth Beycheville label offers value with style. Produced from grapes that are outside the chateau’s Saint-Julien appellation, it shows plenty of the estate’s stylish winemaking. There’s black currants and attractive acidity and tannins.” – Wine Enthusiast. The Grand Bateau range is made by Chateau Beychevelle’s winemaker Philippe Blanc in the classic Bordeaux tradition with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon for the red and Sauvignon Blanc for the white.
