Tasting Notes and Scores

92-95 RP

A spectacular wine from this nearly 50-acre vineyard situated atop St.-Emilion’s famed limestone plateau, the final blend for the 2012 Beau-Sejour Becot was 70% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon. It achieved 14% natural alcohol and yields were 31 hectoliters per hectare. One of the stars of the vintage, it is elegant yet powerful, rich and authoritative with abundant black raspberry, blueberry, graphite and toasty vanillin notes. Full-bodied and super rich for a 2012, it is packed with potential. The tannins are ripe as well as abundant suggesting several years of bottle age will be required. It should turn out to be a 20 year proposition. Kudos to the Becot family for producing this beauty. Drink 2013-2033.

A red with juicy fruit and fine tannins including a dried meat and smoke undertone. Full body, tight tannins and a flavorful finish. Improved in barrel. A joy to taste. Better in 2018.

Toasty oak and minerally nose; very nice balance, gently if clearly oaky, with a beautiful fruit, and a very fine dry tannin; long and subtle and gently racy to taste, and with sweetly perfumed length. Fresh, juicy and vital, but still with that oak dryness on the finish...which you either relish...or don’t. Very nice in its style, and with the oak tannin texture much less obvious than in the past. Gentler vinification plus a finer grained wood? Drink 2019-30+. [70M/24CF/6CS].

Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux tasting. The 2012 Beauséjour Bécot had a strange bouquet at first, a little funkiness that soon dissipates with several swirls of the glass. I like the delineation here, nuanced red cherry and wild strawberry scents, black tea and undergrowth, though I noticed that it becomes just a little volatile with aeration—something to watch out for. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, foursquare for a Saint Emilion and yet nicely focused, just the right amount of dryness, if not quite delivering the requisite complexity and tension on the finish. This is one of those wines that is "nearly there" and needs bottle age, but I am certain it will come good once it has settled down. Tasted January 2016.

This has a nice core of bramble-edged plum and blackberry pâte de fruit flavors, underscored with lightly singed alder and juniper hints. A mineral note maintains a little tension through the finish. This should age nicely in the mid-term. Best from 2016 through 2022.

Bright ruby. Blackcurrant, graphite, licorice and pepper on the nose. Blackberry, spices and vanilla on the palate, with a violet topnote contributing to an impression of lift. Nicely sweet and savory Saint-Emilion, with building concentration, very good length and plenty of early appeal.

Drink 2016-2023
Inky with black core. Intense, very dark yet fresh fruit, heading towards savoury with all that intensity. Lighter on the palate than I expected, the tannins fine and reined back. A little abrupt on the finish. (JH)
