Histoire et anecdotes

Château Beychevelle is a prestigious Cru Classé with a history dating back to the 16th century. Powerful families lived in, especially Jean-Louis Nogaret de la Valette, the First Duke of Epernon and Grand Admiral of France, who bought the estate under the reign of Henri II. According to the legend, ships that would pass ahead of his Château had to lower their sails as a sign of allegiance, that is why it was named Beychevelle: “lower sails”. Nowadays, Grands Millésimes de France (Castel and Suntory Group) own the estate.
