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.- LPB

With a strong sensation of underlying minerality, you are also treated to dark chocolate, juicy ripe fruits, sweetness and volume. There is length, depth and a great mouth feel. This is the first vintage with Thomas Duclos as the consultant. It looks like they are on a roll here!

It gives the wine a lift and succulent berry flavors and acidity. That combines with the dry core to promise great aging for a wine that should be ready to drink from 2024. - ROGER VOSS

A racy edge is buried on the finish, showing a touch of floral lift. Very suave. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2022 through 2037. — JM

Some handy depth to the nose here with quality fruit that’s evenly ripened. Rich aromas of mulberries lead to similar flavors on the very smooth, juicy and supple palate with plenty of fine tannins. Drink or hold.

(93+ points) Deeply colored, the 2017 Chateau Beau-Sejour Becot checks in as 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon that was 50% destemmed and aged in 65% French oak.

This classic, elegant 2017 reveals a deep ruby/purple hue as well as plenty of black cherry and mulberry fruits, solid complexity in its salty minerality, dried flowers, iron, and spice aromatics, medium to full body, a bright spine of acidity, and outstanding length. It doesn't have the flesh or richness of the 2016 (or 2018) yet is classic, pure, incredibly precise, and long. This beautiful wine will benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and keep for 15-20 years.
