Tasting Notes

93 points Robert Parker: "From a 41-acre vineyard situated on St.-Emilion’s limestone plateau, Beau-Sejour-Becot’s blend can vary, but it is approximately 70% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon. Production can be as low as 4,000+ cases (in a tiny vintage such as 2003), or as high as 7,000+ cases (in an abundant year such as 2004). The 2003, which reminds me of a 1990 Right Bank Bordeaux, tips the scales at 13.5% alcohol. Its dark plum/ruby/purple color is followed by a sweet nose of creosote, scorched earth, black cherries, currants, and pain grille. Deep, full-flavored, muscular, textured, and rich with light to moderate tannin in the finish, this lavishly rich, full-bodied effort requires 1-3 years of bottle age, and should drink well over the following 12-15." (04/06) 89-91 points Wine Spectator: "Slightly jammy, but some decent berry and tobacco character. Licorice. Medium to full body. Medium tannins. Thick finish. Could turn out very serious indeed." (04/04) Barrel tasting according to Clyde Beffa, K&L Bordeaux Buyer: "Garage style. Some people will love it. Tasted three times. At LD Vins the wine was in better shape with good balance along with all that toasty oak and extraction. Sure makes a statement. *+ "
