1998 Beausejour Becot

Size Availability? price? Qty

Average critic rating : 90.0 points



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. Wine Advocate.April, 2001



Lots of ripe fruit here, with a leafy, tobacco, meat and coffee undertone. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and a sweet, lightly jammy aftertaste. Polished tannins.¿'88/'98 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2008). Drink now. 5,415 cases made. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2009



Substantial, rich, warm nose. Sweet quite refined palate. Lots of stuffing and flattering yet with good structure. Not nearly at full potential though a very confident mouthful of ripe fruit. Slightly tart.www.jancisrobinson.com, 11 Mar 2006
