This Chateau located in St. Julien, not far from Pauillac.

Built in the 17th century, reconstructed by the marquis de Brassier in 1757 and extended by the Heine family at the end of the 19th century. Classical in its lines, the imposing facade, topped with a majestic triangular pediment and with wings on each side, is embellished with volutes and vases that give it an exuberantly baroque appearance. Château Beychevelle has recently been restored to its original splendor.
