Reviews for 2009 Beau-Sejour-Becot Bordeaux Blend

Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, February 2012
Minty new wood aromas on a wine that shows both great tannins and sweet wood. The fruit is still to show but promises fresh plum flavors that will be delicious and juicy. Ripe concentrated wine. R.V.

My favorite Beau-Sejour-Becot to date this sumptuous dense blue/purple-hued 2009 reveals a blockbuster nose of blueberry pie black fruits licorice forest floor spring flowers and a hint of mocha. A blend of 70% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon made from tiny yields of 27 hectoliters per hectare this big inky powerful tannic wine is sensationally concentrated. With an unctuous texture full-bodied power and tremendous levels of tannin (largely concealed behind a cascade of rich fruit) this is a fabulous effort from a beautifully situated St.-Emilion premier grand cru classe. It will need 5-8 years of cellaring and should keep for three decades. 94+ points

Dark but racy with chocolate-covered raspberry and blackberry fruit carried by graphite and toasty cinnamon black tea and anise flavors. Firms up on the finish with a lovely note of singed apple wood that should meld nicely after cellaring. Best from 2014 through 2024.- J.M.

Lush velvety and sweet with expansive flavors of dark fruits mocha and cola complemented by sexy oak. The expansive finish features building ripe tannins and excellent lingering sweetness. Very much in the fleshy style of the year and attractive from day one.

The palate has an elegant fruit profile with a long finish. Although there's some concentrated fruit the wine avoids being syrupy or gloppy. Silky tannins.
