Robert Parker's Wine Advocate : Beychevelle, owners of one of the great terroirs of the northern Medoc, continues to produce wines that are frustratingly irregular in quality. This light to medium-weight wine exhibits a dark ruby color, and a straightforward, redcurrant-scented nose with toast and earth in the background. Low acidity, high tannin, and sweet fruit result in a good, but uninspiring impression. The 1994 Beychevelle should drink well for a decade.
James Suckling : Offers some vanilla, spice and fruit character, but is slightly dry and lean on the finish. May be better in 1998. 29,500 cases made.
