The excellent of a Premier Grand Cru Classé of Saint-Émilion

A Premier Grand Cru Classé B, Château Beau-Séjour Bécot shines bright in the Saint-Émilion appellation, on the right bank of Bordeaux.

Enjoying a superb location on the limestone plateau of Saint-Émilion, Château Beau-Séjour Bécot reigns over a vineyard of nearly 18 hectares of vines planted on clay-limestone soils. The estate is planted with Merlot (80%), Cabernet Franc (15%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (5%).

For this great 2018 vintage, the grape harvest began with Merlot on September 12th and ended with Cabernet on October 10th. The grapes were picked with careful plot selection and the vinifications carried out with manual punch-downs and a traditional alcoholic fermentation in inverted truncated vats. Slow and gentle extractions were preferred.

An exceptional Premier Grand Cru Classé, Château Beau-Séjour Bécot 2018 displays all the grandeur and elegance of a Saint-Émilion wine born in a magnificent vintage.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2018 Beau-Sejour Becot is composed of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The Merlot was harvested on September 12-25, and the Cabernet varieties were harvested on October 4, 5 and 10. Yields were 46 hectoliters per hectare, and it is anticipated that the wine will age for 16 months. Sixty-five percent of the wine will be matured in new barriques, while 35% will be aged in vats, amphorae and large oak casks of 20-hectoliter capacity. Deep garnet-purple colored, it leaps from the glass with bold, expressive notions of stewed plums, blackberry pie and Black Forest cake with nuances of menthol, mocha, molten licorice and wild sage plus a waft of lavender. Full-bodied, the palate is laden with latent energy, offering slow-releasing glimpses at dark, seductive berry preserves layers and vibrant earthy accents, framed by firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and mineral laced.
