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 : 92-94 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The tentative blend of the 2017 Beau-Sejour Becot is 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Very deep garnet-purple colored, it opens with an earthy nose of mossy bark, truffles and fertile loam with a core of baked plums, crushed blackberries and black raspberries. The palate is medium-bodied, refreshing and delicately played with energetic fruit and plush tannins, finishing earthy.
