$69.00 per Bottle

"The 2015 Beau-Séjour Bécot is composed of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 85% new and 15% one-year-old French oak for 17 months. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the nose opens with blackberries, black cherries and crushed black plums with touches of spice box, lavender and cedar. Medium to full-bodied, it's rich, velvety and decadent in the mouth with a firm backbone and long, spicy finish. Yum!" Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Interim Issue

"This brims with ripe, juicy plum, blackberry and açaí berry flavors, studded with licorice and fruitcake notes and backed by a nicely integrated apple wood detail through the finish. Pumps a lot of fruit out but does so energetically. Best from 2020 through 2035. 6,250 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Just as impressive from bottle as it was from barrel, the Beau-Séjour-Bécot is superb. Expressive plum, grilled herb, lavender and spice flesh out in the glass. Voluptuous and racy, with no hard edges, the 2015 has much to offer. This is in an especially dense, explosive style, and yet all the elements are wonderfully fused together. I would give the 2015 a few years in bottle to start showing at its best." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Very perfumed with crushed berries and blackberries. Wet earth and great intensity. Decadent. Full-bodied, layered and very velvety and intense. Extremely long and intense. A sexy and opulent wine yet poised and tight. One of best ever. Needs at least three to five years bottle age." JamesSuckling.com

"The 2015 Beau-Séjour Bécot was picked between 5 and 15 October. It has a very pure and almost heady bouquet, perhaps because of the higher alcohol than in 2014 at almost 15.0° in alcohol. Rich and decadent, you just want to put a leash on its exuberance. The palate is sweet and candied on the entry, very fine tannin and well judged acidity, layers of luxuriant red berry fruit laced with mineral and that alcohol is neatly disguised on the sensual finish. With bottle age the aromatics will hopefully just calm down and then you should have a fantastic Saint-Émilion. Tasted at the château." Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"Mid crimson. Finely ripe dark fruit, damson and dark plum but not at all raisined. Milk chocolate softness in texture, just enough freshness. Not very long but very approachable if not yet revealing its character." Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com
