5 - 10 year ageing potential.
Believe it or not, it is possible to serve the same wine throughout a dinner. The roles simply need to be reversed: It is no longer a question of adapting the wine to suit the menu – quite the contrary!
The smoothness and roundness of Château Beauvillage goes beautifully with a melt-in-the-mouth starter, such as panfried foie gras. Barrel ageing, meanwhile, lends the wines toasty oak aromas, perfectly suited to barbecued or grilled rib of beef, while the wine’s powerful tannins are ideal with mature soft cheeses, followed by a very dark chocolate dessert.
