The “fabulous” Beychevelle 2022 is finally out, and its competitive release price promises a quick sell-out. “One of the favourite recent vintages” in the eyes of Galloni, the latest millesime is a perfect marriage between flamboyant fruit and electric freshness clear hallmarks of the 2022 vintage. Building on its outstanding track-record of performance over time and strong international demand, Beychevelle 2022 should be a no brainer at today’s release price.

“The 2022 Beychevelle is fabulous. In most recent vintages Beychevelle has been a flamboyant, extravagant Saint-Julien, but in 2022 is its surprisingly vibrant and fresh, almost shockingly so. Ripe red cherry/plum fruit, blood orange, rose petal and spice are all beautifully delineated. More than anything, I admire the wine’s freshness and drive, qualities that have not often been present in recent vintages. That makes the 2022 one of my favorite recent vintages here. Tasted three times.”
