Description

“Wonderful nose with loads of dark chocolate, plums and some coffee. Opens up with orange peel, leather and vanilla. Full and round on palate with beautiful fruit and sweet polished tannins. Long and gorgeous with a really smooth texture. Drink from 2017.” James Suckling

“Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Beausejour-Becot has a ripe blackcurrant, dark plum and crushed stone scented bouquet that is well defined, feisty at first but calming down in the glass, a little stemmy underneath like Figeac. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannins. Surprisingly, this is very classic in style with the Cabernet component very obvious. It is distinctive from its peers, a cru that seems to have gained panache since last year. Tasted January 2014.” Neal Martin

“A blend of 70% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine from a moderately sized vineyard was cropped at only 27.5 hectoliters per hectare and came in at 14.5% natural alcohol. The wine displays plenty of toasty oak and vanillin as well as some lead pencil shavings intermixed with cedar, black currants, cherry jam, chocolate and espresso. It is a relatively big, dense, full-bodied St.-Emilion that needs 5-6 years of cellaring and that should keep well for up to two decades.” Robert Parker for Wine Advocate
