A spectacularly rich, hedonistic wine, the 2015 Beau-Séjour-Bécot exudes richness and intensity, with silky, polished tannins that wrap around a huge core of fruit. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, licorice and violet notes flesh out as this voluptuous, modern St.-Émilion shows off its distinctive personality. The 2015 is 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon partially fermented in barrel. All the elements are simply in the right place. Tasted two times. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Beau-Sejour-Becot is a blend of 80% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon picked between 5-17 October, matured in 70% new oak barrels. It has a seductive and sensual bouquet with dark berries, blackberry and a subtle marine influence - kelp, perhaps brine. The palate is very smooth, satin-like tannin accompanied by a fresh line of acidity. Harmonious, almost sultry in style and yet there is plenty of freshness on the caressing finish. What a gorgeous Beausejour Bécot. To quote 1980s chanteuse Sade - this is a "smooth operator". Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2020-2045

This offers the ripe, layered boysenberry and raspberry fruit and velvety tannins of the vintage, with an extra dimension thanks to a racy mineral edge. Judicious toast lets the finish shine. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

Very deep crimson. Edgy and charred. A bit too exaggerated. Hard work! Shades of the 1990s… Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2025-2038

Deep and reserved on the nose but a fragrant palate. Powerful but refined tannic base. Beautiful smooth texture with the freshness from the limestone terroir. Persistent finish. Apr 2016, James Lawther MW, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2023-2040

This tastes less alcoholic than it is, partly because of the presence of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, but also because of the talent of winemaker, Juliette Bécot and the high percentage of limestone in the vineyard. Rich, plush and textured, this has lovely tannins, plenty of dark, bramble fruit and scented, coffee bean oak. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2024-2032
