Description

92    James Molesworth for Wine Spectator
“Frankly toasted, with a roasted vanilla bean frame around a core of lightly steeped plum and blackberry fruit. A little more reliant on toast than freshness, but solid enough.” (4/2017)

91-92    James Suckling
“I like the lift to this wine with stone and mineral character and plenty of blackberries. Medium-bodied, firm and silky. Well done.” (4/2017)

90-92    Neal Martin
“The 2016 Joanin Becot is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc cropped at 42 hectoliters per hectare between 12-19 October and matured in 65% new oak. It has a very well-defined bouquet with plenty of black cherry fruit, blueberry and a touch of boot polish. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, great volume, a fine bead of acidity and although there is a touch of reduction on the finish, it will be a fine, generous and quite powerful Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux with time.” (4/2017)
