2015 Joanin Becot

Average critic rating : 89.0 points



Super-ripe black cherries, plums, spices, new leather and sweet French oak are pushed forward in the 2015 Joanin-Bécot. This is one of the more overtly ripe wines of the year. Today, the tannins are also a bit unpolished. If the wine comes into balance it may merit a more positive note in the future. This shows the extreme ripeness of Merlot in 2015.

The 2015 Joanin Bécot has long been one of my favorite Côtes de Castillons and this is a little gem. A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, it has a very pure and sensual bouquet with ripe raspberry, strawberry and cassis scents. The palate is medium-bodied with vanillary new oak on the entry, quite powerful but controlled on the palate, the 15% alcohol neatly disguised with a slightly tarry but fresh finish. Give this 3-5 years in bottle and wash down with a juicy steak. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2020-2032
