Winemaker Notes

This, almost extremely ostentatious wine will have its detractors, but as far as pleasure is concerned, there is no criticism to be made.

Strong ruby-purple color, it is clearly well endowed, sugary and generously woody, literally oozing with extracted richness.

Averagely robust, it displays in its strong and massive finale some moderately aggressive tannins.

Rich and concentrated overall, it will be at its best after laying down for 3 to 5 years. rink between 2003 and 2017.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 1998 exhibits flamboyant, obvious new oak, but unlike other years, there is more concentration, power, and depth behind the vanillin/pain grille notes. Full-bodied, dense, and chewy, with copious peppery, herb-tinged, red currant, black currant, and blackberry fruit, this is a lush, generously-endowed offering with a lightly tannic finish. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2016.

Chateau Beau-Sejour Becot, France
Chateau Beau-Sejour Becot Winery Image
Chateau Beau-Séjour Bécot is located just to the west of the medieval town of Saint-Emilion, in the very heart of this prestigious appellation. Classified a Premier Grand Cru Classé until 1986, the chateau lost its rank as a "Premier", but regained it in 1996 thanks to a ruling by the INAO (Institut National des Appellations d'Origine).

The estate was named Beau-Séjour in 1787 by General Jacques de Carle, the proprietor at the time. Michel Bécot bought the estate from Doctor Jean Fagouet in 1969 and further increased the area under vine from 10.5 hectares to 15 by acquiring 4.5 hectares on the Trois Moulins plateau in 1979. The chateau then took on the name of Beau-Séjour Bécot. The vines are planted on perfectly homogenous soil ideal for producing fine wine. Michel Bécot retired in 1985. His two sons, Gérard and Dominique, now manage the estate.
