"Joanin Becot's amazing 2005, a sleeper of the vintage, should be priced realistically. This stunning blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc (32-year old vines) achieved 14.5% natural alcohol. A saturated purple color offers up scents of graphite, blueberries, blackberries, smoke, and charcoal. Dense, opulent, and full-bodied, with stunning concentration, sweet but noticeable tannin, and terrific purity as well as nuances, this is unquestionably one of the finest wines I have ever tasted from the Cotes de Castillon. Drink it over the next 10-15 years."
