Delightfully pure, with light echoes of bramble, chalk and anise flittering through the finish. Silky and refined, this has length to burn. -JM

(93-95) Soft, lush, round and polished, the wine has flesh, ripeness, concentration and length. 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!

Supported by structured tannins that are already well integrated, it shows touches of wood and spice at the end. This is going to be a generous, fruity wine from 2023.

Succulent black cherry, chocolate, new leather, spice and menthol. All the elements fall into place in a soft, beautifully resonant Saint-Émilion from the Bécot family.

(91-94) Coming from an incredible terroir located on the limestone plateau just outside the village, the 2017 Château Beau-Séjour Bécot is a medium-bodied, refined, incredibly elegant 2017 that offers awesome notes of crème de cassis, crushed violets, earth, and a saline-like minerality. Winemaker Thomas Duclos compares the 2017 to 2012, saying the wines will put on weight in barrel as well in bottle. Their 2017 is a fresh, vibrant wine and has tons of potential. The blend is 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, with the Merlot brought in from the 14th to the 22nd of September, and the Cabernets on October 28 and 29. The wine will spend 16 months in 65% new French oak, with the balance in stainless steel, amphora, and larger oak. Tasted twice.

(WA 92-94 points) The tentative blend of the 2017 Beau-Sejour Becot is 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Very deep garnet-purple colored, it opens with an earthy nose of mossy bark, truffles and fertile loam with a core of baked plums, crushed blackberries and black raspberries. The palate is medium-bodied, refreshing and delicately played with energetic fruit and plush tannins, finishing earthy. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

(VN 91-93 points) The 2017 Beau-Séjour Bécot is less immediate on the nose compared to the 2015 and 2016. This takes a little time to unfurl, eventually offering a mixture of red and black fruit, crushed rose petals and just a touch of cassis. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, fine structure and freshness. It is not a powerful Beau-Séjour-Bécot but is imbued with great freshness and whilst it does not possess the structure or depth as the last couple of vintages, I appreciate the mineral aftertaste here. -- Neal Martin

It displays a medium-dark hue of magenta with a medium body. The nose brings forth subtle aromas of dark berries, roses, spice and cola, with these elements gaining intensity upon entry. Beautifully rich with a creamy texture, this ultimate impression is one of balanced roundness. The tannins are soft and wonderfully integrated while the finish is long and pleasant.
