(RP92-95 points) A spectacular wine from this nearly 50-acre vineyard situated atop St.-Emilion’s famed limestone plateau, the final blend for the 2012 Beau-Sejour Becot was 70% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon. It achieved 14% natural alcohol and yields were 31 hectoliters per hectare. One of the stars of the vintage, it is elegant yet powerful, rich and authoritative with abundant black raspberry, blueberry, graphite and toasty vanillin notes. Full-bodied and super rich for a 2012, it is packed with potential. The tannins are ripe as well as abundant suggesting several years of bottle age will be required. It should turn out to be a 20 year proposition. - Robert Parker

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.

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.

(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 exotic for the vintage with a “furry”, sexy finish. Modern in style, this is an opulent Beausejour Becot that should be approachable after bottling, but age well.

(WS89-92 points) This is bouncy, with a briary backdrop to the blueberry, lingonberry and cherry fruit. Delivers a mouthfilling finish of fruit cake and anise. Score range: 89-92 –JM

Blackberry, spices and vanilla on the palate, with a violet topnote contributing to an impression of lift. Nicely sweet and savory Saint-Emilion, with building concentration, very good length and plenty of early appeal.
