Description

Characteristics and tasting tips for Château Beau-Séjour Bécot 2023

Tasting

With its seductive refinement and balance, this vintage combines fine tannins with a velvety touch and a pure and elegant structure. The finish is persistent, underpinned by a beautiful minerality.

A full-bodied and fresh Saint-Émilion wine

The estate

A 1st Grand Cru Classé B, the Château Beau-Séjour Bécot shines in the Saint-Émilion appellation, on the right bank of Bordeaux.

The vineyard

The Château Beau-Séjour Bécot is a Saint-Émilion wine from a 17-hectare vineyard. With an average age of 35 years, the vines are planted on clay-limestone soils of the western plateau of the appellation.
The vineyard is composed of Merlot (77%), Cabernet Franc (21%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (2%).

The vintage

An unexcessive winter is followed by a spring with early bud break, before a frost episode that does not impact the vineyard. Subsequently, the alternation of mildness and humidity promotes rapid vegetative development. The numerous storms recorded between mid-May and late June increase mildew pressure. The high temperatures at the end of spring and beginning of summer ensure a progressive growth of the berries before a cool spell in mid-July. August and September are hot and particularly dry. Despite these contrasting conditions and high temperatures, the berries maintain a rare freshness.

Vinification and ageing

Intra-parcel manual harvesting is followed by destemming and manual sorting. Parcel vinification. Thermo-regulated vatting. Traditional alcoholic fermentation. Maceration for 35 days. Gentle extraction in infusion mode. Maceration in an oxygen-free environment. Ageing in barrels (55% new, 20% one wine) as well as in amphorae and 20 hl casks (25%).
