"A very classical St. Julien that’s got good concentration and real elegance, too. Great black fruits on the nose with subtle oak, and the richness and dry tannins are balanced out beautifully. You could drink it now, but this will age beautifully."
94 Antonio Galloni - Vinous
"The 2014 Beychevelle is dark, ample and yet also quite nuanced. Blue and purplish stone fruits, lavender, spice, menthol and licorice notes abound in this super-expressive Saint-Julien. There is lovely freshness and vivacity to the flavors, but this is a pretty intense, succulent style. Tasted two times."

"This is already a delicious wine in the balanced Saint-Julien style. Smooth and ripe, it is fruity with a structure that promises medium-term aging. The rich aftertaste shows both the promise and the pleasure of the wine. Drink from 2020. -RV"

" This has a fleshy feel, with plum and blackberry compote notes driving along thanks to a solid graphite spine. Anise and roasted apple wood accents frame the finish, which has excellent length. A textbook St.-Julien that should age well. Best from 2019 through 2030. 19,835 cases made. -JM"
