Fresh spicy nose with coffee, red plums and cranberry. Some vanilla, nutmeg and white pepper. Crushed chalk behind the fruit. Vibrant and juicy red fruit on the palate with ripe tannins and good length. Medium-full body.
Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Joanin Becot has a simple bouquet with raspberry and balsamic scents that open and muster more vigour with time, the oak nicely integrated and revealing floral tones. The palate is medium-bodied with a tannic, masculine entry. This is very structured with a dry finish, but it is balanced and poised and will benefit from several years in the cellar. Tasted January 2014. (NM)
A supple, polished, modern style, relying on creamy, mocha-tinged toast, gentle plum and blackberry fruit flavors before finishing with a lingering cocoa edge. Should stretch out nicely with modest cellaring. Drink now through 2018. (JM)
Bright dark red. Musky aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, menthol, flowers and spicy oak. Rather suave and fine-grained, with red fruit, coffee and mocha flavors complicated by sweet oak and underbrushy soil tones. Finishes with a positive herbal element, good ripe acidity and substantial lush, building tannins. (ID)
