About On the surface Château Beychevelle would seem to be a grand château with an illustrious past, huge demand from Asia and a profile that is much larger than its status probably merits. However it is fortunate that in the last 30 years it has been owned by corporations with deep pockets who are prepared to invest in this continuing vision and never sit still in the face of competition from rival châteaux.
