Ch Beychevelle 1975
The existing Chateau dates from 1757 as it overlooks the estuary of the Gironde river. Beychevelle means "baisse-voile" or lower sail. This is out of respect for all passing ships paid to the one-time owner the Duke of Epernon. Producing some 26,000 cases from it's 175 acres this 1975 vintage is a classic.
