From the Critics:

  • "The bottled 2005 Beau Sejour Becot confirms that this is the finest effort from this estate in the thirty years I have been covering Bordeaux. A classic blend of 70% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, it is an intense, full-bodied St.-Emilion revealing notes of espresso roast, chocolate, blackberries, licorice, and truffles. With sweet but noticeable tannins, good acidity, and a powerful, long finish, this textbook St.-Emilion cuts a swath between the modern school of winemaking and the traditionalists. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030+" (04/08) - 94 Pts Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
  • "Barrel sample. Very ripe, very soft at first taste, but there's a good punch of tannins and a dense, intense palate. This has the ripeness of some New World wines. -RV" (06/06) - 93 Pts Wine Enthusiast
  • "Good ruby-red. Very ripe but lively aromas of kirsch, licorice, bitter chocolate, nuts and violet. Dense and sweet but vibrant, with a medicinal reserve and terrific grip to the superripe fruit and bitter chocolate flavors. Wonderfully rich, pliant wine with late-arriving tannins and a terrific spine for a slow evolution in bottle. Much more tightly wound today than the Becot family's La Gomerie, but there's plenty of fat fruit lurking." (06/08) - 92 Pts Stephen Tanzer - International Wine Cellar
  • "Offers aromas of blackberry, coffee and tar, with a full body, silky tannins and a blackberry, mineral and light vanilla aftertaste. Balanced, refined and pretty. Best after 2014. 5,830 cases made. -JS" (03/08) - 92 Pts Wine Spectator
  • "Saturated and rich, this wine is black in color and all mocha in aroma. The bold strawberry flavors are larger than life, the tannins integrated. It's all about power, with no way to tell what's underneath. Cellar it, and you'll either get a delicious, rich red, or something more distinctive as the power and the oak begin to fade." (10/08) - 90 Pts Wine & Spirits
