Wine Enthusiast, April 2013

(WE93-95 points) Barrel sample. 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...

A red with juicy fruit and fine tannins including a dried meat and smoke undertone. Full body, tight tannins and a flavorful finish. Improved in barrel. A joy to taste. Better in 2018.

Neal Martin's Wine Journal, May 2013

(NM90-92 points) A blend of 70% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, the Beausejour Becot has a vibrant, brightness on the nose. The palate is packed full of lush ripe red berry fruit – quite lavish and...

Decanter,

Ripe and savoury on the nose. Palate sweet and plump but fresh. Firm, long, dry finish. Tannins a little angular. La Gomerie now incorporated.

The Beau-Sejour Becot vineyard is situated on the western plateau of Saint-Emilion, in the old parish of Saint-Martin de Mazerat. The estate covers 18.5 hectares of which 16.52 hectares are planted with Merlot (70%), Cabernet Franc (24%), and Cabernet Sauvignon (6%) on chalky soil with fossilized starfish. The average age of the vines is 40 years old and the fruit is harvested by hand.

This wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in 80-100% new barrels depending on the vintage. It then ages in the cellar for 16 to 18 months at constant temperature of 16 degrees Celsius. Annual production is approximately 60,000 bottles.
