TASTING NOTES

"A beautiful wine from Beau-Séjour Bécot, the color of the 2005 is an opaque purple and the wine is loaded with notes of cedar wood, Asian spice, blackberry and cassis fruit. Full-bodied and tannic, but broad, huge, and massive, this wine is still an infant and needs another 7-10 years of cellaring. This is a 40- to 50-year wine from the Bécot family."

"The 2005 Beau-Séjour Bécot was picked between 27 September and 5 October. This has a gorgeous bouquet, probably the best that the Bécot family made up until that point. It brims over with redcurrant, cranberry and red plum, hints of rose petal and ripe Satsuma with the mineralité tucked in just underneath. The palate is medium-bodied with fine yet succulent tannin. There is a fresh line of acidity that is interwoven into dark berry fruit that counterbalances a somewhat structured finish laced with leather, allspice and just a touch of white pepper. This boasts impressive length, noticeably more than any earlier vintages. This excellent Saint-Émilion is just opening for business but it should offer two decades of drinking pleasure. Tasted at the château." Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"Offers aromas of blackberry, coffee and tar, with a full body, silky tannins and a blackberry, mineral and light vanilla aftertaste. Balanced, refined and pretty. Best after 2014. 5,830 cases made." Wine Spectator
