Château Beau-Séjour Bécot

Château Beau-Séjour Bécot

Château Beau-Séjour Bécot is considered a savvy en primeur buy. It bridges the divide in Saint-Émilion between the value-oriented Grands Crus and the high-flying aristocrats of the region. A 1er Grand Cru Classé 'B', Beau-Séjour Bécot is classified on par with Canon and Figeac, yet far less expensive than either. As a result, it often flies under the radar. Over the past few years, however, it has made great strides, gaining ground on its illustrious neighbours.

 

Viniculture

The 20-hectare vineyard is roughly 73% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Franc and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon. The vines average 45 years of age, but with some parcels over 70 years old. The estate is located on the limestone plateau of Saint-Émilion with a terroir of clay that has deep, limestone soils. Below the surface, there is an endless array of limestone tunnels and quarries, which definitely contributes to making the wine so special.

Beau-Sejour Becot 2006 (12x75cl)

Wine Enthusiast (94)

Although it begins with austerity, its acidity and tannins dominant, the palate opens beyond its youthfulness after a few moments. It becomes dark and powerful, certainly still dryly tannic, but the fruit is generous, and the final taste is of beautiful, ripe fruits.

Wine Enthusiast (94)

This is a finely balanced wine that's ripe and structured at the same time. It has richness and spice, with a powerful context of wood, juicy blackberry fruits and delicious acidity. With such concentration, this is a wine with excellent ageing potential.

Wine Advocate (93)

The 2014 Beau-Sejour Becot was tasted on two or three occasions. It has a generous and sensual bouquet with ample macerated red cherries, wild strawberry, vanilla pod and orange sorbet aromas. This is endowed with superb delineation and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannin, beautifully integrated new oak, real depth and focus. You could argue that it needed to demonstrate more persistence on the finish but that would be clutching at straws. There is so much freshness and vivacity in this Saint Emilion that it really is a must-buy.

James Suckling (95)

Very perfumed with crushed berries and blackberries. Wet earth and great intensity. Decadent. Full-bodied, layered and very velvety and intense. Extremely long and intense. A sexy and opulent wine yet poised and tight. One of best ever. Needs at least three to five years bottle age.

Wine Advocate (96+)

Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Beau-Sejour Becot sails out of the glass with pronounced black cherries, kirsch, baked plums and boysenberries scents plus nuances of bay leaves, star anise and pencil shavings with a waft of roses. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers bags of juicy black fruits with a firm backbone of rounded tannins and bold freshness, finishing with great length and purity.

Wine Spectator (96-99)

Juicy and forward in feel, with fresh plum, blackberry and anise notes. Dense, but still silky and refined in feel, revealing a long mineral echo through the finish. This is so pure, it seems almost too easy to drink already, just as you realize how ridiculously long it is.

Decanter (96)

Rich plum colour. This takes its time to open, is pretty subtle at first, but then explodes in juicy fruit. Clear salinity where you can feel the slate scrape of the limestone terroir, alongside well expressed aromatics with touches of peony flowers. Elegant and succulent. Second vintage with Jean de Cournuaud as technical director. A yield of 46hl/ha. 65% new oak, with a mix of barrels and 20hl casks. 3.77pH. Harvest 18-21 September, with all the Merlots in 3.5 days instead of the usual 11 days (and in fact stretched over one month in 2018), with just 20 minutes from picking to vat. Thomas Duclos consultant.

James Suckling (96-97)

This has a fantastic finish with crushed blackberries and raspberries and salt undertones. It’s full-bodied, yet really racy and polished with such fine, intense tannins. Love the length to this. Very distinguished and toned. Excellent energy. 85% merlot, 13% cabernet franc and 2% cabernet sauvignon.
