The pleasure and elegance of a Grand Cru from Saint-Émilion full of freshness and greediness

Château Beau-Séjour Bécot is ideally located on Saint-Émilion's western plateau, and it boasts a prestigious wine heritage with vineyards grown on the estate since the Gallo-Roman era.

The Bécot family owns Château Beau-Séjour Bécot. The estate received the Saint-Émilion Premier Grands Crus Classés B ranking in 2012, which recognizes the high quality of the wines because they stand out for their excellence, density and depth.

This is the first vintage that was produced under the guidance of the talented Thomas Duclos from the prestigious Oenoteam laboratory. Château Beau-Séjour Bécot 2017 is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful revelations of this vintage that was full of challenges.

The blend consists of Merlot (80), Cabernet Franc (15%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (5%). The Château Beau-Séjour Bécot 2017 reflects brilliantly all the typicity of the limestone plateau of Saint-Émilion. Intense and very pure, the bouquet exudes delicious blackcurrant and black cherry compote aromas. With aeration, the fresh menthol and anise notes gradually reveal themselves structured within a mineral frame, which comes from the calcareous terroir of Saint-Émilion. The palate presents a superbly vivacious structure that emphasizes the brilliance and flavour of the fruit while delicately polished tannins outline the structure’s frame. The mid-palate maintains its crispiness and mellowness due to the perfectly balanced acidity. The finish lingers for the longest time. An incredibly elegant and pleasing 2017 vintage, which marks a new era in the evolution of the Beau-Séjour Bécot's style.

Parker : 96+ / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Beau-Sejour Becot sails out of the glass with pronounced black cherries, kirsch, baked plums and boysenberries scents plus nuances of bay leaves, star anise and pencil shavings with a waft of roses. 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.
