A masculine, slightly rustic style of St.-Emilion, this dense ruby/purple-hued, medium-bodied 2011 exhibits notes of mulberries, black cherries, earth, graphite and a touch of background oak. It possesses elevated tannins, but a good attack and impressive purity as well as depth. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the next 15+ years. Wine Advocate.April, 2014

Tasted three times with consistent notes, the Beauséjour Becot has a ripe, fruitcake scented bouquet that is clean and delineated although for me, just slightly over-extracted. The palate is sweet and ripe on the entry with chewy tannins, good acidity and substance, the finish a little attenuated but well balanced. Fine. It may evolve more finesse throughout its maturation. Tasted April 2012. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

A typical example of Beau-Sejour Becot (a 40-acre vineyard on top of St.-Emilion’s limestone plateau), yields were 37 hectoliters per hectare and the wine is relatively powerful for a 2011 (14.5% alcohol). The final blend was 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. This modern-styled effort exhibits copious aromas of toasty oak, espresso roast, melted chocolate, black currants and cherries. The nearly exotic, somewhat flamboyant and elegant St.-Emilion is not a big bruiser, but rather possesses plenty of finesse and freshness because of its acid levels. It should drink well for two decades. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate February 2012

Nice density, with a solid, coated feel midpalate as the fig and boysenberry flavors roll along, supported by graphite, pain d'épices and licorice snap on the back end. Nicely imbedded acidity, too. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

Black with dark cherry rim. Ripe and sweet with a touch of vanilla making it sweeter still, brightened by fresh cassis. Very chewy but not tough. Dense, fresh, bags of fruit. Acidity quite pronounced on the finish but should meld reasonably well with time. Julia Harding MW, jancisrobinson.com

70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon create the blend. The wine will be aged in 70% new oak. With deep color, truffle, floral, black raspberry, cherry blossom, licorice and vanilla, this round-textured wine ends with plush, polished and silky boysenberry, black cherry and stone. 40% of the wine is now being whole-berry fermented in 600% hectoliter barrels, which, according to Juliette Becot, adds richness and more opulent textures to the wine.

This is one of the standout St Emilions in a tasting of over 30 wines from this appellation. The wine possesses wonderful vibrant flavours with full, dense tannins that are ripe and polished. The flavours have the ripeness of the 2009s and the tannins have the density of the 2010s. A gorgeous supple wine with excellent length. Jeannie Cho Lee MW, AsianPalate.com

An incredibly woody nose thought the palate is sweetly fruited (and oaked). Lots of liqueur fruit etc.
