A busy Primeur week lies ahead as numerous releases are expected.

Releasing nearly 10% down on what was already a generous 2018 release price, Beychevelle is in the class of superb St. Julien wines that offer great value for money.

At this price level, today’s release is the cheapest Beychevelle offered on the market. All other recent vintages are trading above £700. 

Beychevelle 2019 received 95-97 points from Jeff Leve and 94 points from Jane Anson (Decanter). James Suckling scored it 93-94 and described it as a “rich, layered red with lots of ripe fruit and creamy, round tannins”. He added that it is “equal to the 2018 in quality. 

However, prices for Beychevelle show little correlation to scores. As you can see in the chart below, older vintages tend to command higher prices.
