4. Château de Béchaud 2018, Saint-Émilion Grand Cru. New vintage.
34% Cabernet Franc, 66% Merlot.
Bam! Deep, dark, and high impact, oaky complexity, layered, exotic flashes like shafts of light piercing the darkness, roses and tar, antique wood. Palate is very smooth and full with creamy notes and satisfying length. Very fine Saint-Émilion Grand Cru with a bright future. Young but drinking well.
Drink now to 2030
