Estate

Amiral de Beychevelle is the second wine of Chateau Beychevelle and sold on exclusive basis by Barriere Freres. The name “Amiral” was given to this wine in homage to the chateau’s 17th century owner, Duc d’Epernon and Amiral of the French Navy under Henri III. Clearly identifiable to Château Beychevelle, the wine is soft, elegant and fruity with excellent breed. With “Amiral”, the objective is to make a wine which can be drunk earlier than the Grand Vin.

Food Pairing

This wine will perfectly accompany flavorful (red or white) meat dishes such as grilled lamp chops, braised shanks and meat stews. Also harmonious with most cheeses like Gruyere, Comte, Cantal, Reblochon, Beaufort … (avoid Roquefort and arguably Camembert). And of course, will also easily and gracefully accompany more simpler dishes like pizza and/or most barbecued foods.

Tasting Notes

Soft, elegant and fruity with excellent depth and breed. With Amiral, the objective is to make a wine which can be drunk earlier than the Grand Vin (with more Merlot). Ideally consumed after 3-7 years of ageing.
