Deep garnet in colour, the 2010 Beau-Sejour Becot reveals a lifted, slightly acetone-scented nose over a core of baked blackberries and prunes plus wafts of dried bay leaves, pencil lead and tilled soil. Full-bodied, the palate is pleasantly tart with firm, sturdy tannins supporting the generous herb-laced black fruit preserves, finishing a tad chewy.
My favourite Beau-Sejour-Becot to date, this sumptuous, dense blue/purple-hued 2009 reveals a blockbuster nose of blueberry pie, black fruits, liquorice, forest floor, spring flowers and a hint of mocha. A blend of 70% Merlot and the rest of 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.
