Château Beychevelle is a prestigious Cru Classé whose character has been forged by three centuries of history. Under Henri III, Beychevelle was the fief of the Dukes of Epernon, particularly the first of them, Jean-Louis Nogaret de la Valette. This Grand Amiral was powerful -according to legend, the boats that passed before his château had to lower their sails, as a sign of allegiance. Hence the name "Beychevelle" (Baisse-Voile which is French for "lower your sails"), and the emblem of the château, the ship with a prow in the shape of a griffin, guarding Dionysos's cellar in Greek mythology.
